How is the procedure performed?
One tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process described below:
  • Diagnosis and treatment planning.
    This first step involves active participation between the candidate and the dentist. Explain to the dentist the results that you are trying to achieve.
    During this appointment the dentist will examine the teeth to make sure dental veneers are appropriate for you and discuss what the procedure will involve and some of its limitations.
    The dentist also may require X-rays and possibly make impressions of your mouth and teeth.

  • Preparation.
    To prepare a tooth for a veneer, the dentist will remove about millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, which is an amount nearly equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added to the tooth surface.
    Before trimming off the enamel, the dentist might require the need for a local anesthetic to numb the area. Next, the dentist will make a model or impression of the tooth. This model is sent out to a dental laboratory, which in turn constructs the veneering.
    In some professional dental centers the whole procedure takes only2-3 hours. But in other centers it usually takes 1 to 2 weeks for your dentist to receive the veneers back from the laboratory. For very unsightly teeth, temporary dental veneers can be placed for an additional cost.

  • Bonding .
    Before the dental veneer is permanently cemented to the tooth, the dentist will temporarily place it on the tooth to examine its fit and color. The dentist repeatedly remove and trim the veneer as needed to achieve the proper fit; the veneer color can be adjusted with the shade of cement to be used.

  • Next, to prepare the tooth to receive the veneer, the tooth will be cleaned, polished and etched � which roughens the tooth to allow for a strong bonding process. A special cement is applied to the veneer and the veneer is then placed on the tooth.
    Once properly position on the tooth, the dentist will apply a special light beam to the dental veneer, which activates chemicals in the cement causing it to harden or cure rapidly.

  • The final steps involve removing any excess cement, evaluating the bite and making any final adjustments in the veneer as necessary. The dentist may require a follow-up visit in a couple of weeks to check that the gums are responding to the presence of the veneer and to once again examine the veneer's placement.

What are the advantages of dental veneers?
Dental Veneers offers the following advantages:

  • They provide a natural tooth appearance. Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well.
  • Porcelain veneers are stain resistant. The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter.
  • Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth's color and shape.Veneers generally don't require the extensive shaping prior to the procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to bonding.
