In this blog post from Mason Dental in Grapevine TX, we are focusing on porcelain veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Veneers (also called laminates) are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can remedy many cosmetic issues such as:
- Teeth that are misshapen
- Teeth that are too short
- Teeth that are misaligned
- Gaps between teeth
To create perfect-fitting veneers, we first create a model of your teeth. Following this, an experienced dental technician will use the model to make the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed. Today’s veneer process leaves most of your healthy tooth structure.
