What they do is take a grinder and grind your real teeth down to little stubs. Then they take an imprint of your mouth and send it away to the lab. They make little fake temporary looking teeth out of the cement they use to hold braces on. The veneers are a full tooth shape all the way up to the gum line except a little part that what is left of your real tooth goes into. They put some cement on your tooth and slide the veneer on.

As for what they are like on, I can't tell they aren't real. Pretty much once I got them put on they felt like real teeth, only a tiny bit smoother. I've had them on for about 6-7 years now and they've held up really well. One of them did get a tiny chip on the bottom and so it has a little sharp edge that I can't stop running my tongue over. If I could go back and do it over I would never have done it though. I was just a teenager and was going along with what the doctors and my parents were telling me. Knowing my real teeth are just little stubs really sucks, but living with veneers isn't any different than real teeth.
