A veneer is a thin shell of material that is placed over your natural tooth to correct the size, colour, shape or appearance in some way. These are often for anterior teeth or front teeth because they greatly improve the appearance of your smile.
There are two different materials that veneers are made of:
A high surface glaze or gloss in appearance, which cannot be removed with tooth brushing and will not stain as easily as composite veneers. They are also a lot stronger. May take a few appointments to complete as the porcelain is created in a lab.
Less expensive in price than porcelain and can be completed in one single appointment. Simple and not overly expensive.
