What Are Dental Veneers?

Last updated 6 years ago

Dental veneers are translucent, tooth-shaped ceramic shells that are placed over the natural tooth in order to improve the appearance of the tooth shape and color. Watch this video to learn about how the veneer is placed on the tooth and what materials a veneer is made of.

In this video clip, you will also see the different stages of veneer placement on the teeth. Before a veneer can be placed on the front surface of the tooth, some of the natural enamel must be shaved away. Because each veneer is customized to the patient, there are many preparatory steps to this cosmetic treatment. Watch this video to see what happens during placement and finishing.
