Porcelain Veneer Bonding Process
Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin shells that are applied to the front surface of the teeth.When you choose to have porcelain veneers, your dentist will first take an impression of your teeth to help design the best veneers for your smile. Next, your dentist shaves down about ½ millimeter of the front tooth surface and sends the impressions to a lab. After several weeks, your porcelain veneers are ready to be placed. Your dentist uses a special cement to bond the veneers to your existing teeth.
