When one or more teeth is chipped, damaged or worn, Dental Veneers are fabricated 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 material commonly used by clinics to fabricate dental veneers: dental porcelain and composite resin.
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 then 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.
