What Are Veneers?

Veneers help an array of different problems with your teeth. Some of the problems they help are worn down teeth, chipped or broken teeth, misalignment, gaps, and discoloration. Veneers or porcelain veneers are custom-made, tooth-colored shells of material that cover the front surface of the teeth to make your teeth look better. The shells are bonded to the teeth, so their color, shape, size, and length are changed.

Two Types of Veneers

Dental veneers are made from porcelain or composite materials. Porcelain veneers are better at fixing stains and help to make your teeth look more natural. Composite resin veneers is a material made from tooth-colored fillings and may be used to form dental veneers.shifa1

What Can Veneers Do For me?

Veneers can help you get the teeth that you want. They give your teeth a natural look, and your gum tissue is able to tolerate porcelain well. Porcelain veneers are also stain resistant, so your teeth have less of a chance of looking so warn. In addition, they offer the ability to change your teeth’s color and shape, and they don’t require the same sharpening that crowns do.
