When one or more teeth is chipped, damaged or worn, Dental Veneers are crafted specifically and placed over the existing teeth to restore the look of the original teeth. They also provide the strength and resilience similar to that or natural tooth enamel.
There are 2 main types of dental veneers commonly used by clinics:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Composite Resin Veneers
For alterations and adjustments to tooth position, shape, size and/or colour, dental porcelain is usually the ideal choice. All porcelain veneers are indirectly fabricated by dental ceramists and bonded to the tooth with strong and long-lasting transparent cement.
Composite veneers can either be indirectly fabricated in a dental lab by a dental technician and subsequently bonded to the tooth using resin cement, or directly placed and built-up in the mouth.
