Understanding how dental veneers work
Dental veneers are essentially very thin shells made of porcelain that are bonded onto the front surface of a tooth to cover imperfections. This restoration will last many years before it needs to be replaced as long as patients take good care in protecting them and cleaning them. It is a more desirable option than alternatives such as composite resin bonding, which is susceptible to staining and is intended as a more short-term solution. Dental veneers are custom-made to match the patient’s smile in shape, size, and color and are natural-looking enough that others are often unaware that cosmetic dental work had been done.
