Dental veneers explained
Dental veneers are thin laminates fitted on the front teeth to transform your smile. Veneers are made of porcelain material to match your natural teeth closely. After dental veneers are placed, it’s probably you and the dentist who will know you have them — that’s how natural veneers can be!
What is the dental veneer procedure like?
Installing veneers isn’t a one-visit event. After consulting with your dentist and making your expectations clear, the procedure involves several steps. The first one being pre-installation, where your dentist polishes off the outer layer of tooth enamel and reshapes the tooth surface to allow for proper placement of the veneers. Here, your dentist also numbs your mouth to ensure that the process is less painful. Then, your dentist takes impressions of your bite that are sent to the lab to guide the veneers’ formation process.

The next step is installation/preparation. Before permanently cementing the veneers to your tooth, they are placed on your tooth and adjusted to achieve the proper fit and color, and the result is natural-looking veneers. Next, your tooth will be cleaned, polished, and etched. The shell is then bonded to your tooth with composite resin, and a specialized light beam is used to activate chemicals in the cement so that it hardens quickly. Any excess adhesive is then removed. You might need to make a follow-up visit to check the placement of your veneers. Veneers can be fixed on one or many teeth at the same time.
Why do you need dental veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers come in handy in hiding teeth imperfections. Veneers don’t treat unhealthy teeth but cover up teeth flaws like:
- Stained teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Worn out teeth due to grinding
- Misaligned teeth
Additionally, porcelain material is stain-resistant. As such, your new veneers will remain beautiful now and for years to come.
