What is a VENEER?
Veneering a tooth means to cover its surface. They are used to enhance the shape as well as the color of a set of teeth. A veneer also closes spaces between teeth. As we get older, we wear down our teeth. Erosion on the front teeth may affect the aesthetics of a smile. Porcelain veneers can completely change the smile of an individual.
The Invisalign® Process:
During the first visit an impression of the teeth in the current state is taken. This is used as a model for the fabrication of custom veneers. Depending on the amount of reduction necessary, a temporary veneer may be placed.
At the second visit, after a thorough cleaning and preparation of the teeth, the veneers are placed.
Typically, porcelain veneers last about 15 years. With proper care and maintenance they can last even longer. Porcelain veneers resist stains and are among the strongest and most natural looking restoration options available.
