Dental veneers are very thin, tooth-shaped shells made of porcelain. Cosmetic dentists use them to correct minor dental problems such as tooth discoloration and cracked or chipped teeth.
Porcelain veneers are more common than ones made from resin because they are brighter and gums tolerate them with less resistance. The thin porcelain shell is bonded to the tooth to blend in visually with the rest of your teeth. Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns because they require less tooth preparation.
