Veneers are another way to improve your smile while protecting your teeth from any damages. There are two types of veneers: composite and porcelain. Composite veneers may be directly placed or indirectly fabricated by a technician in a lab, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement.
Today’s composite veneers can provide a natural smile that can last for a long time.
They are usually applied when patient presents chipping or discoloration of the tooth. They can also be used to further align a twisted tooth with the rest of the teeth.
Composite Veneers can be removed and replaced as needed. Once placed by your dentist, they should look completely natural a and no one should be able to tell them apart from your other teeth.
Porcelain veneers are typically permanent. The dentist usually removes a layer of enamel before attaching the porcelain, patients will eventually need to replace their veneers or choose an alternative restoration to take their place. Compared to composite veneers, the upside of having porcelain veneers is that they are resistant to staining and chipping.
