Porcelain veneers is a compilation of several thin ceramic layers. It is the replacement to an original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer.
To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed, this is usually less than one millimeter of the enamel. This step is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit in the mouth. It helps in preserving the natural tooth function while creating a better appearance.
Furthermore, the bond between the original tooth and porcelain veneer is critical. Usually, a light-sensitive resin is placed between the original tooth and the veneer. Dental veneer is then hardened using a technology-advanced curing light.
After the porcelain veneers are attached you will probably have some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures due to the removal of that thin layer of enamel. This typically disappears within a few days. You should avoid the same excessive stresses you would avoid with natural teeth.
Please don’t bite your fingernails, chew ice, or open a beer bottle with your veneers! Treat them as you would your original teeth, with routine brushing, tongue scraping, and flossing.

Veneers are individually sculpted for each patient. It is also hard to spot the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. But unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials. With dental veneers—as opposed to crowns—your natural teeth remain largely intact. Only a minimal amount of your altered tooth is removed to fit the veneer.
The dentist may also recommend veneers to quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps.
