Unsightly teeth can be very beautifully restored with thin layer of ceramic or plastic placed over natural teeth. Veneers have been around for many years and their success is well proven.
Veneer is a thin shell of custom made ceramic or plastic bonded to the carefully prepared surface of natural tooth. The concept is very similar to contact lenses or false fingernails. When bonded to the natural tooth, they become as strong as if not stronger than the natural tooth. Veneers for teeth usually require two visits. At the seat appointment, a mild acid is used to prepare the surface of the natural tooth to roughen the surface for better adhesion. Once the acid is washed off, the bonding is applied and veneer is seated and finished to make a beautiful, strong and undetectable restoration.
