Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are very thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of a tooth improving in great manner its appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Dental veneers can be made of two different materials: porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. We will discuss with you the best choice of veneer material for your case.
Veneers are routinely used to fix: Teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them) and also teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)
