Porcelain veneers are often known as either dental veneers or porcelain laminates, and they're paper-thin, custom-fitted, tooth-colored fittings that are designed to cover the front surface of teeth so the teeth look like new again. They are bonded to the front of teeth to restore the color, size, shape, or length of damaged teeth, ultimately restoring your smile and confidence.
Indeed, veneers are among the most frequent cosmetic dental procedures for improving the appearance of your teeth. Compared to dental implants or other expensive procedures, porcelain veneers represent an inexpensive cosmetic option.
What is the Procedure?
Getting porcelain veneers usually involves the diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding of veneers to your teeth. The first step of getting veneers entails consultation with your dentist to decide what you wish to achieve with your dental procedure.

Your teeth will be analyzed to make sure veneers are suitable, and your dentist will discuss possible limitations of the treatment. Next, your teeth need to be prepared for porcelain veneers. Your dentist will have to remove approximately 0.5mm of enamel from the tooth surface that's approximately the same thickness of the veneer. Then your dentist will make an impression of your tooth so a dental laboratory can use to build your custom veneers.
