What is a veneer?
A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damaged tooth surface. Made from ceramic, porcelain or a composite material they are usually fitted to the front upper and lower teeth.
Step 1 – During your first visit, your dentist will prepare your tooth by removing any outer enamel necessary to allow room for the veneer that will be placed on top.
Step 2 – Once the veneer has been made, your dentist will bond the veneer to your tooth with a special dental adhesive which will firmly hold it in place.
Step 3 – Multiple visits are sometimes necessary to review the fit and bite of the veneer.
Following the treatment, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene. We recommend creating a daily brushing and flossing routine this ensures the veneer remains trouble-free.
