Dental Veneers are almost like thin shells, which can mask discolored, misshaped and misaligned teeth. Dental veneers are made of thin porcelain and are usually used on front teeth, on the front surface which is exposed while smiling. The tooth which the veneer is to be placed on is first prepped and is then followed by impressions. Impressions are molds taken of your teeth for precise measurements. The impressions are sent off to a laboratory where a lab technician will craft your veneer. Once the veneer has been made it is bonded on to the tooth. Porcelain veneers are most common type of veneers due to the fact the wide range of shades available make it easy to blend in with natural tooth color.
