Dental veneers are used to fill gaps between teeth, cover up stained teeth, and cover teeth that may be chipped, uneven, misaligned, or oddly shaped. Dental veneers are made from porcelain or resin composite material that will match the color of your teeth. Porcelain veneers usually resist stains better than resin composite, and reflect light like natural teeth.
To create a porcelain veneer, our dentist will make an impression of your tooth. The impression is then sent out to a dental laboratory that manufactures the veneer, which takes about 1-2 weeks. The color and shade of the veneer will be made to match your other teeth. While the porcelain veneer is being made at the lab, you will be given a temporary dental veneer to wear.
Porcelain veneers don’t usually need as much shaping as a crown does. Learn more about Porcelain veneers procedure in Las Vegas.
