To repair teeth with little tooth structure or large fillings, porcelain veneers are a good option because they have a natural tooth appearance. For veneers, we place a covering over the visible area or outside of the tooth. Porcelain veneers usually take two appointments, one to take impressions of the teeth and the second to bond the fabricate veneers to the teeth. After the first visit, the tooth or teeth receive a temporary covering to protect the area between visits. Porcelain veneers have an advantage over crowns because there’s less removal of tooth material, which makes the procedure more comfortable.
