What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like porcelain structures that are designed to cover cosmetic imperfections and discolorations on the surface of patient’s teeth, while leaving the underlying tooth intact. They are as thin as a piece of a broken light bulb and are permanently bonded to the tooth surface increasing its strength and becoming an integral part of it.

What to Expect When Getting Dental Veneers from Our Top-Rated Orange County Dentists
Preparing Teeth for Veneers by Digitally Scanning Your Mouth
In order for porcelain veneers to form a secure bond with teeth and result in a comfortable fit, a very thin layer of enamel (about 0.5 mm) will be removed from the surface of the teeth. A second digital scan is completed to capture the prepared teeth and sent to the dental lab. Before the patient leaves our office, we’ll fit them with a set of beautiful temporary veneers created from the diagnostic wax up to act as a trial run of the final restorations and to protect the teeth and guide the gum tissue into position, while awaiting lab fabrication and placement of the permanent veneers.
