What Are Dental Veneers?
A dental veneer is a thin sliver of tooth-colored material that covers the front surface of a tooth (or teeth). Essentially, they are used to disguise the tooth, normally to hide its size, shape, color or unsightly damage. There are different brands available, such as Lumineers or eMax veneers.

What’s Does the Procedure for Dental Veneers Entail?
Dental veneers typically necessitate two trips to the dentist. These comprise:
1: Assessment and treatment planning: this is so your dentist can fully understand what kind of result you are trying to achieve. The dentist will examine your mouth and x-rays may be taken. If the dentist decides you are a suitable candidate (note: this is something your dentist at home can indicate during a check-up) and you want to go ahead with the treatment, then impressions of your teeth and preparation may be done during this appointment.
2: Teeth preparation: a thin sliver of tooth enamel is removed from the surface of each tooth that is to receive a veneer. This is done under local anesthetic. Impressions of your mouth will be taken and sent to the laboratory where your veneers are to be made.
3: Fixing veneers: once your dentist has received the veneers from the laboratory, you will return to the dental clinic to have them fitted. Your dentist will place the veneers on the tooth to check for fit, removing and adjusting the veneer to ensure it is snug. When satisfied, the veneer will be cemented in place and bonded with a special light beam that activates the chemicals in the cement to harden it. Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to fit and color before the process is finished.
If your dentist offers CAD/CAM technology, then it may be possible to have your treatment completed on the same day, while you wait. Otherwise, most clinics can complete the treatment within two or three days.
