Veneer is a "thin piece of porcelain used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.
Also, veneers can be used to close gaps or correct small misalignments. Patients also choose veneers as a cosmetic solution to enhance the brightness of their teeth and to straighten their smile, correcting issues like discoloration, fractures, or chips.
At Star Dental Smiles, we do the process in a very easy and pain free steps. The dentist will clean the tooth and determine the correct shade for the veneer. The dentist will remove a very small amount of the enamel of the tooth to provide room to place the veneer on the tooth.
The veneer is light cured for 60 seconds on all surfaces of it to attach it to the tooth structure.
At Star Dental Smiles, we schedule a follow-up visit to check for comfort; a comfortable veneer will be a long-lasting veneer.
