Dental veneers are thin shells, custom made for your teeth to cover the front surface and improve their appearance. They are made of tooth-colored materials and can be used to improve the color of teeth, the shape or size of your teeth, or any combination of these.
You talk to you dentist about dental veneers if:
- Your teeth are stained or discolored
- Your teeth are crooked or misshaped
- Your teeth have spaces between
- Your teeth are broken or chipped
Two types of veneers are commonly used. Porcelain veneers are more durable, and resist stains better. The other type is composite resin veneers. Unlike porcelain, these are not made in a laboratory, but instead directly applied to the teeth. They typically have a shorter life span, and are less expensive.
