Veneers are a type of dental restoration that are used to improve the look of your teeth. They are thin sheets of dental stone or other material that are bonded to the front and back of your teeth. Veneers are a great option for people who want to improve the look of their teeth but don’t want to have extensive dental work done.
Veneers are used to fix a wide variety of dental problems, including:
- Broken teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Incomplete teeth
- Teeth that are too big or too small
- Dental stains
- Dental decay
- Crowns and bridges
Types of veneers
There are two types of veneers: porcelain and resin-based composite.
Porcelain veneers are a strong, thin cap that can be placed on the tops and sides of the teeth.
To attach them, our dentist will remove some enamel from the tooth before placing them. Porcelain veneers have the same color as natural teeth, but it is possible to make them whiter to brighten the smile.
Resin-based composite veneers
Resin-based composite veneers are similar to porcelain veneers, but they tend to be less expensive and require less enamel removal. Sometimes, we may not have to remove any enamel before placing the composite veneer.
