Bonding of the veneers to the teeth

Your comment has been received. Thank you.

Before they are permanently cemented to your tooth, your dentist will apply them temporarily on your teeth to examine their fit and color. If they do not fit properly, your dentist will remove them and trim them to the right shape. When the proper fit and the right color are achieved, the veneers are ready for permanent bonding. Next, the teeth are prepared for the bonding process, they are cleaned, polished and their surface is roughened (etched). Then a special bonding agent (cement) is applied to the veneer and it is placed on the prepared tooth. When the veneer is properly positioned on the tooth, the dentist will apply a special curing light beam to the dental veneer, which acts as a catalyst activating the chemicals in the cement causing it to harden very quickly. Finally any excess cement is removed, and the dentist makes any final adjustments in the veneer if necessary.
