Veneers are an elective and often cosmetic dental procedure conducted by an orthodontic specialist. At your orthodontic practice, your dentist will cover the front of your tooth with the veneer, but your entire tooth will be right behind it. In this video, we’ll go over what exactly happens during the dental veneer procedure.
When you receive dental veers, your orthodontist will buff away a thin layer of your tooth. Your orthodontic specialist will prep the veneer, which you’ll have gone over during your consultation appointment at the orthodontic office.
They will then bond the veneer to your tooth using a curing light.
The best orthodontist or dental provider may recommend veneers if you’re experiencing confidence issues regarding your smile and your enamel is strong. Veneers can replace the need for whitening, braces in some cases, and more. Speak to your orthodontist to figure out which type of veneers work best for you.
There are a few different types of veneers including porcelain veneers, composite veneers, and no-prep veneers. Depending on the type of veneers you get, your procedure may differ and so may the cost. Be sure to reach out to you orthodontic specialist for more information about the dental veneer procedure.
