Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers Treatment


Porcelain veneers, in the dentistry, are also known as dental veneers. These veneers are wafer-thin and tailor-made shells which are made of tooth-coloured material. They are used to coat the surface of the front of your teeth which improves their appearance. They are bonded to the teeth by changing shape, colour and size as well as the length of teeth.

As the name suggests, the veneers are made of porcelain so as to recreate the natural look in the teeth. The veneers also provide strength as well as resilience to teeth. The dental veneers can also be made of resin composite substance. Resin made veneers are thinner than porcelain and need less tooth surface removal veneers. However, it is to be noted that porcelain veneers are better than resin in terms of resisting stains as well as reflecting light just like natural teeth. The dentist will recommend the best veneers for you.
