A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface either to protect a damaged tooth surface or to improve the aesthetics of a tooth.
Reasons for getting veneers include:
- Filling a chipped tooth
- Straightening a crooked smile
- Covering discoloured or stained teeth
Did you know?..
There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and dental porcelain.
A porcelain veneer is fabricated by a dental technician in a laboratory and later bonded to the tooth. Porcelain is a more aesthetic and long-lasting material.
A composite veneer is built up using a white filling material.
