What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin translucent shells that are custom-made to fit over your teeth. Applied with a special adhesive designed to last for years, dental veneers have become a popular type of cosmetic dentistry because of the improved appearance they provide to your teeth and smile. Dental veneers, which are typically used on the front teeth, are successfully used to cover a wide variety of dental problems. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.
What Types of Dental Veneers Are Available?
Dental veneers are generally made with either porcelain (ceramic) or with a composite resin. Both types have advantages and disadvantages. Because composite resin is much thinner than porcelain, they require that less tooth be removed. Another advantage to dental veneers made with resin-based composite is that they can usually be placed in just one appointment. However, many patients like porcelain veneers because they’re more natural looking and more stain resistant.
