Porcelain veneers are custom-made and require two appointments to place.

At the first appointment, the teeth are slightly reduced and shaped to prepare them for the veneer. Local anesthetic may be used prior to this shaping. An impression is made of the prepared teeth and a model is sent to the dental lab. Temporary veneers are placed on the prepared teeth until the permanent veneers are ready.

When the dental lab has finished creating the veneers, the veneers are placed on the prepared teeth using a strong dental adhesive. A high-intensity light is used to set the adhesive and permanently bond the veneers to the teeth. With proper care, veneers can last for a very long time.

It is beneficial that porcelain veneers are not made from the same enamel as your natural teeth. This means that porcelain veneers do not stain like your normal teeth would. Also, in most cases, porcelain veneers protect compromised tooth structure.

While a veneer itself cannot suffer any decay or disease, it is possible to develop a cavity in a tooth covered by a veneer. Regular preventative care including dental checkups and cleanings are still required to keep your teeth healthy.
