There’s no need to live with the embarrassment of cracked, misshapen or discolored teeth, not with the wide variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that are available today.

A porcelain veneer, for instance, is a thin shell of material that can be placed over the surface of the teeth to cover any damage that has been done. Not only does it offer a cosmetic improvement but it also serves to protect the teeth from further deterioration.

The first step will be to consult with your dentist to determine if a dental veneer is a good option for your specific needs. After a thorough examination and explanation of the procedure, you can work together to understand and achieve the end result that you have envisioned. It’s important that you and your dentist are on the same page as far as your expectations go.

The actual procedure will require two appointments, one for preparation and the second for placement of the veneer. At the first appointment, your dentist will shape the tooth that is to be restored and make a mold that the dental lab will use to manufacture the veneer. When your veneer is ready your dentist will adjust the shade to match your natural teeth and bond the veneer to your tooth. You will return for your follow up appointment in approximately two weeks.
