Dental veneers are like any other veneer. They are a covering to be placed over the front surface of your original teeth in order to improve upon a blemish in your smile. They can be compared to table veneers where oak is placed over plywood so that no one would ever know the difference. Typically, the veneer is placed due to stained, chipped or cracked teeth that hinder your smile.

Dental veneers are created using laboratory techniques, but first, your teeth must be prepared by your dentist. The dentist will assess and plan the dental veneer creation even before he touches your tooth. The dentist will map out where enamel can be removed in order to make for the perfect fitting veneer. After proper planning and preparation, the dentist will then begin the procedure. First, the dentist will use local anesthesia in order to numb the area of intervention. Then the dentist will wait and check to make sure the area is numb. After we prepare the tooth for dental veneer creation by removing the most minimal amount of enamel possible in order to fit your veneer, as naturally as a puzzle piece, on top of your tooth.
The dentist will then take an impression of your tooth. This impression will be made in the likeness of your tooth. The dentist can have multiple choices at this point in time. He can put on a temporary dental veneer to map out exactly how your permanent dental veneer will fit or he can create the permanent veneer right then and there on the same visit. Typically the dentist will also pick out the correct color dental veneer for your tooth based on a dental-specific schematic. This will make sure the dental veneer matches the teeth already in place in your mouth. The dentist will then have a permanent dental veneer made so that you can leave with a perfect smile. You will be the envy of all of your friends.

The dental veneer can come in many different types:
This material is also what is used in dental fillings. The composite resin is a strong material that can assimilate enamel and still be a tooth-colored filler for our tooth. This can typically be used to fill in small chips and cracks in the tooth that you deem unsightly. It is also the most simple, least invasive, and most economical way to make your smile the envy of all of your family and friends.
These dental veneers can be used for patients who have more extensive wear and tear on their front teeth that can cause blemishes to the smile and much more. These can be used for dullness, wear and tear on tooth enamel, as well as extensive tooth staining not amenable to teeth whitening.
