What is permanent veneer? Permanent veneer offers a permanent solution to stains, cracks, and holes on your teeth. Because it requires a long procedure, its installation can last up to three dental visits. On the first visit, the dentist needs to create a mold to mimic your natural teeth and to make sure that the dental veneers are perfectly aligned with the rest of the teeth. the second to third visit involves the procedure of putting on the veneer after removing a thin layer of your enamel. This is to make sure that the veneers will stick to the bonded material and your teeth.  


This is where temporary veneers play an important role. It gives you the chance to experience veneers and their benefits without having to deal with permanent results like what the permanent veneers provide. Aside from that, it gives the dentist a chance to find out some areas of weaknesses or areas for improvement that can be seen once the temporary veneers are put on.
