Veneers

To improve the shape of the tooth or to protect a damaged tooth a veneer may be applied made of dental porcelain or composite material. Usually veneers are constructed in a dental laboratory and then later glued to the tooth using a resin cement like Panavia.

Veneers are an important tool for cosmetic dentistry to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Veneers are good for replacing discolored or cracked teeth for restoration. However it is not recommended for young people who have healthy teeth.
