Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain fixed onto teeth to enhance appearance, and in some cases, to protect the teeth. Achieving a dramatic smile makeover without the use of highly invasive treatments is possible with veneers.  The results are durable, lasting 10-30 years. Veneers typically require 2-3 appointments.

The first is a consultation to determine the desired look, and plan the shape of the veneers to achieve it.

During the second visit, the tooth surfaces will be prepared, by removing a very thin layer of enamel, and taking impressions of the teeth. Using these impressions, veneers are fabricated to fit onto the surfaces, either on-site, or at a lab facility.

On the third visit, the dentist will apply a cleaning solution to prepare the tooth surfaces for bonding, and the permanent veneers will be cemented.
