Porcelain veneers are "new fronts" for your teeth. Some preparation of the teeth is usually necessary, and an impression is made. Our lab uses information provided by our doctors to design porcelain facings that will be bonded to your teeth. It takes the lab about two weeks to do their work. Until the porcelain ones are ready, you will have temporary veneers made by our doctors to match your desired new smile. At a second visit, the porcelain veneers are tried on for your approval and then bonded in place.
Porcelain veneers are used to make your teeth longer, whiter and/or straighter. Porcelain veneers can restore worn edges on teeth to create a more youthful appearance. Overlapped and crooked teeth can have "instant orthodontics" with porcelain veneers.
