Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of
tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded
to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than
resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require
removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for
you with your dentist.
