What Are Dental Veneers?

The first question you will ask Dr. Maredia is what a veneer for your teeth is. The answer is a veneer is a slim cover placed over the front of a damaged tooth. The materials used to create veneers include composite resin and porcelain. There are many uses for veneers, including covering a single damaged tooth or several teeth. Dr. Maredia's patients usually improve the appearance of the six to eight front teeth for a uniform appearance.

How Are Dental Veneers Installed?

The process of installing veneers can take between one and two weeks. At your first appointment, Dr. Maredia will take a mold of your teeth and send it to the lab with details of the color and size of your teeth. The lab will return your veneers to Dr. Meradia in time for your second appointment. Once the veneers are seen to be the correct color and size they will be applied to your teeth. Dr. Maredia uses a grinding tool to roughen the surface of your existing tooth before using dental cement to attach each veneer. Ultraviolet light is used to harden the cement.
