Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are used to cover the front side of your teeth to correct a stained, poorly shaped, or crooked appearance. Traditionally, veneers are made of porcelain for the most natural looking, longest lasting, and most esthetic option. They can also be made of composite resin. There are most certainly differences in situations where one type is used over the other. Just ask one of our dental professionals when you are in for your next visit.
