How are Veneers Made?

Veneers can be used to correct minor flaws in your teeth, such as chips, cracks, discoloration, and gaps. They can also be used to alter the look of the size, shape, or position of your teeth. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, you may want to talk with a porcelain veneer dentist in Los Angeles to see if you would be a good candidate.

If you are getting veneers, your dentist will remove a small portion of your tooth enamel. Your dentist will then select a shade that matches your neighboring teeth. An impression will be made so that the lab can create veneers that are a perfect fit. You may have a temporary veneer placed.

At the lab, thin layers of porcelain are combined to create the look, color, and translucency of natural teeth. Any temporary veneers will be removed, and your dentist will check your veneers for fit and color. Any corrections can be made right away. Your dentist will use an acid to roughen up the surface of your teeth, then apply a bonding agent. The veneers will be attached with cement, which is cured with a special light.
