Spotlight on the Dental Veneer Process

If you’re unhappy with the shape, size, condition, or color of your teeth, then dental veneers can help. These porcelain, thin shells are attached to the surfaces of the teeth to improve the appearance and help you feel more confident in your smile. If your dentist recommends veneers for you, here is what you can expect from the process.

To apply dental veneers, your dentist will first remove a small amount of tooth enamel and then etch the surface of the teeth to make the bonding process easier. He or she will apply the adhesive and attach the veneer, trimming it to match the size and shape of your existing teeth. Finally, the veneers will be bonded using a curing light. Once the veneers are in place, damage and severe discoloration will be obscured, so you can feel more confident showing off your smile.
