Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental-grade porcelain that are placed onto the front surface of the teeth. As with crowns, completion of this process will require two appointments.
The first appointment involves the light preparation of the front surface of any or all of the front six teeth (removing approximately 0.5 - 1 mm) and then taking a mold of these teeth.
At the second appointment, custom-made veneers are bonded onto these prepared surfaces. The colour and shape is chosen to maximally enhance the esthetics of your smile. If the teeth have large fillings in them already, are broken, or if extra stabilization is needed, crowns are excellent restorations to strengthen teeth.
