What are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin laminates that are attached to the front surface of your teeth, the part that’s most visible when you speak or smile. They can be colored to match your existing teeth, or created with lighter shades for correcting stained and discolored teeth.

Types of Dental Veneers

There are basically two types of dental veneers:

  • Composite Resin Veneers

    These type of teeth veneers are made with a tooth-colored dental filling material that’s bonded to the surface of the tooth.

  • Ceramic Veneers

    These type of teeth veneers are thin shells that are custom-made and attached over the tooth surface using dental cement. These veneers can last for many years if they are cared for properly.

To determine if you can benefit from dental veneers, the dentist takes x-rays to ensure you have healthy teeth. If they are found free of any decay and cavities, then you may be a suitable candidate for the procedure.
