What is a Dental Veneer?

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), a veneer is a "thin piece of porcelain used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel."

Veneers can be used to enhance the shape, color, length, or size of teeth. They are also used to fix gaps between teeth or to cover discolored, or misshaped teeth.

How are Veneers Applied?

Veneers are permanent, and bonded to the teeth underneath:
  • First, the teeth that will be under the veneer are cleaned.
  • Second, an impression is taken and sent to a lab that creates the veneer.
  • Third, the veneer is applied by your dentist with a permanent bonding resin.
  • Lastly, once the veneer has been set it is shaped and polished with tools that help it looks like a natural smile.
