When a patient wishes to modify the shape, orientation, or color of his or her teeth, porcelain veneers are often the best option. A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that covers the front and biting surfaces of teeth. Before any treatment begins, a mock-up is created so that we can visualize the expected result. Once the size and shape are approved by the patient, the teeth can then be prepared, and a temporary is made so that the patient can try out their new smile before the finished products are ready for delivery. After the temporary is removed, the final veneers are then adhesively bonded to the teeth, completely transforming the patient’s smile.
