Dental veneers: improve the appearance of your teeth
Dental veneers are simply a thin layer of porcelain, acrylic or composite resin attached to the visible part of the teeth. Veneers are among the alternatives that can improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. They are most often considered to be cosmetic dentistry. When used, dental veneers have the ability to correct certain imperfections in the smile by improving the colour, shape, length, angle, spacing and apparent position of the teeth.

What is the purpose of a dental veneer?
What types of dental veneers are there and how are they applied?
There are two types of veneers: the direct veneer and the indirect veneer. The direct veneer is made from composite resin. This veneer is placed in the mouth and is hardened by light. The indirect veneer is made of ceramic, porcelain or acrylic. It is custom-made in the lab based on a tooth impression. A temporary veneer is installed for about 2 weeks, the time required to manufacture the indirect veneer.
To make a dental veneer, the dentist takes an impression of the cut and prepared tooth, then places a temporary veneer that will protect it until the final veneer is made. The veneers are simply glued to the visible side of the teeth.
