Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. They are typically used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, or misaligned.
The veneer procedure involves the removal of a small amount of the tooth's surface enamel to make room for the veneer. The veneer is then bonded to the tooth using a special adhesive.
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment because they can improve the appearance of teeth in a relatively short amount of time. They can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic dental problems, such as staining, discoloration, chipping, and gaps between teeth.
However, veneers are not suitable for everyone, and they may not be appropriate for people with certain dental problems, such as severe decay or gum disease. Additionally, veneers are not a permanent solution and may need to be replaced after several years. It is important to discuss the pros and cons of veneers with a qualified dental professional before deciding if they are the right choice for you.
