Dental Veneers are thin shells that are placed over the front of teeth to improve their appearance and to protect them from any further damage and create a beautiful smile. In this procedure, a small amount of tooth enamel is removed and the veneer is placed on it. The tooth-colored shells bond to your teeth and change their length, size, shape, color, and function.
Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment because it is an elective procedure and is done for aesthetic reasons. They are otherwise known as a “smile makeover.”
Types of dental veneers
Veneers are mainly of two types:
2. Composite or resin veneers
Porcelain veneers are actually white, semitransparent ceramic material. They are strong, durable, and have better stain resistance as compared to composite veneers. They are used to improve the shape, size, color, and position of the natural dentition.
Composite veneers are thinner as compared to porcelain veneers, thereby requiring a little layer of enamel to be removed. It is inexpensive compared to fixing porcelain veneers. They are used to make lighter modifications to the teeth.
