Veneers are very thin shells made of porcelain that are placed over teeth that are cracked, chipped, discolored or too far apart. As with bonding, the dentist uses a veneer that exactly matches the color of the patient’s natural teeth. They also need to etch the surface of the tooth, attach the veneer with dental cement, cure it with a special light and adjust it. The difference is the dentist makes an impression of the patient’s tooth, and the veneer needs to be specially made at a dental lab. This means the patient needs to make at least two trips to the dentist’s office.
