Composite Veneer

Porcelain Veneers

Unlike composite ones, porcelain veneers require more than one dental visit. However, the dentist can give you temporary veneers in the meantime. For this option, the dentist needs to take your teeth impression in order to manufacture custom veneers for you.

The dentist needs to prepare your teeth for veneers by grinding. This does call for local anesthesia. For patients who don’t like anesthesia, this may not be the right option for them.
