Veneers Q & A

What are Veneers?

Veneers are tooth-colored shells as thin as a wafer that are made to improve the appearance of your teeth. These shells are bonded directly to the front surface of your teeth and can, therefore, alter color as well as size and shape. You typically can find veneers installed on troublesome front incisors, but any prominent misshapen or discolored tooth is a candidate for veneers.

What are Veneers Made Of?

Most veneers are made of either porcelain or a kind of resin composite material. Usually, porcelain is preferred since it can resist stains much better than resin composite veneers. Porcelain is also inherently able to reflect light very well, mirroring the natural properties of teeth. Resin composite veneers, on the other hand, tend to be much lighter and easier to apply. Those seeking a quick fix to minor teeth issues might, therefore, opt for these veneer types.

What Problems Can Veneers Correct?

Though mainly thought of as a cosmetic improvement, veneers can treat a whole variety of bothersome dental issues. While discoloration or misalignment is often the reason, veneers are also typically used to fix chipped or broken teeth, and if you have a gap between your teeth as well, veneers can correct this too.

What are the Benefits of Veneers?

There are many benefits to using veneers. Porcelain veneers in particular, while naturally stain resistant, can simulate your natural teeth almost perfectly, and porcelain has been found to adapt well to your gum tissue. Veneers are also relatively simple approaches to cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry that do not require many of the same drawbacks as other forms of treatment.
