A veneer is a thin shell that is placed on top of a natural tooth and frequently used for restorations of the front teeth. They are custom made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth’s original enamel. This ensures a complete and natural look.
Dr. Daniel Bishop will first prepare your tooth by removing a portion of the enamel. This is necessary so that the veneer will lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. After the tooth has been prepared, a temporary veneer will be secured. When your permanent veneers are ready, Dr. Daniel Bishop can remove the temporary, clean the tooth, and ensure that the new veneer is bonded to a perfect fit.
