Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin shell that is placed over the front or visible parts of the tooth. There are two types of veneers, ceramic veneers that are produced by a dental laboratory and resin-based composite veneers. With proper care, your new veneers will greatly improve your appearance and increase your confidence for years to come.
- Veneers are prescribed for damaged, discolored, or broken teeth, and sometimes to improve the appearance of teeth.
- The tooth is prepared by eliminating surface structure.
- After fabrication the veneer is cemented to the prepared tooth.
- Veneers restore natural beauty and health of teeth.
