A dental veneer is a made up of a thin layer of restorative material that is directly placed over the surface of each tooth to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth. A veneer can also be used to protect a damaged tooth surface. Veneers help cover uneven tooth alignment, worn enamel, spacing, chips or cracks. Veneers can be used to provide a total smile makeover by helping create a brighter, whiter smile with perfectly aligned and shapely teeth in just a few visits.
There are two different types of materials that can be used to create a dental veneer: porcelain or veneer. A composite veneer is indirectly fabricated by a professional dental technician in a dental lab. A composite veneer is then placed on the surface of each tooth using resin cement. In contrast, a porcelain veneer is made of porcelain and very strong in nature. Because of this porcelain veneers are superior in strength compared to composite veneers and also last longer.
