Veneers are best described as being akin to
false nails for your teeth. It involves finding
and choosing the appropriate shade, the dentist then shaves a fraction of the tooth surface off to give the veneer a space to fit in so that it does not stick out too much or interfere with the bite. Once the tooth has been prepared the dentist will take an impression which then gets sent into a lab together with the shade of your choice, the lab then work hard over the next week to construct the veneer of your choice. Over this week usually the patient would have a temporary placed over the teeth depending on the extent of the preparation.
