are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside of the tooth. Veneers are usually only placed on the part of the tooth that is visible. The procedure can be direct or indirect. The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding. The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory.
At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken and the teeth given a temporary covering. In two weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic and are very aesthetic. Veneers can correct discolored teeth, hide chips, fractures and straighten misaligned teeth. The results help to create your perfect smile.
