Front Teeth Veneers

Veneers are a type of restoration placed on the surfaces of front teeth that change the colour and shape of the teeth. You can think of a veneer as being similar to an artificial fingernail that you can chemically bond to the tooth. Composite veneers are made out of white filling material and can be placed usually in one visit. Porcelain veneers are made out of porcelain which is a much harder material and gives a more accurate representation of natural tooth structure.

Two visits to the office are required for porcelain veneers. The first visit, we shape the teeth and take an impression so a laboratory can fabricate the veneers. At the second visit, we bond the veneers to the teeth.
