How are veneers placed?
The process of placing a dental veneer is simple. It starts with your dentist numbing the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. When you’re ready, he will trim a small amount of your tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. Then, he will create your veneer and will make sure it’s the right color and size. This process may require a couple appointments. Once your veneer is perfect, your dentist will cement it into place.
