To permanently adhere a porcelain veneer to a tooth, a dentist will shave off a super thin layer of enamel on the top of the tooth to create a smooth surface area to bond to. The area will be numbed before the shaving process begins. One your tooth is prepped; the veneer will be bonded to your tooth.
