Veneers or porcelain veneers are shell-like dental restorations made of tooth-colored material which are designed to cover the front surface of teeth that’d help improve your appearance and dental health. Veneers can be bonded to the front surface of teeth changing its color, shape, size, or length.
Generally, dental veneers are made of porcelain or resin composite material. Porcelain veneers are known to be better stain resistants than resin veneers and have excellent light emitting properties.

What is the procedure for getting dental veneers?
Getting veneers are easier than you think. It’d require a few visits to the dentist’s office.
Diagnosis and treatment planningYour first visit would help us understand where the patient must require veneers. This would involve a close examination with the help of X-rays and making impressions of your mouth and teeth.
PreparationA few inches of the enamel would be removed to accommodate space for the newly mold veneers. The dentist would administer a local anesthetic before performing the procedure.
BondingBefore cementing the newly made veneer over the tooth’s surface, the dentist would ensure it has the perfect fit and trim. The dentist would repeatedly trim the veneer as needed. The tooth would be cleaned, polished, and etched before bonding the veneer in place. A bonding cement would be applied on the veneer before bonding it to the tooth’s surface. The patient would be evaluated for a bite test, the dentist would make any adjustments in the veneer as necessary.
