Veneers are an ideal solution to cosmetically enhance a smile while still maintaining healthy tooth structure. Veneers are shells that can be used to restore chipped, gapped, stained, or misaligned teeth. Bonded to the front of your teeth, veneers close gaps, mask chips and discoloration. There are two forms of veneers – porcelain and composite.
Veneers made from porcelain or resin look natural. Porcelain veneers resist stains from coffee, tea or smoking better than resin veneers. On the other hand, resin veneers may be able to be made thinner and require less tooth structure to be removed before they are applied. The decision to use resin or porcelain should be made on an individual basis.
