Veneers are thin, custom fabricated shells made from tooth-colored materials. They are designed to cover the front side of your teeth. Veneers can correct a variety of issues, including discoloration, cracks and chips, misshapen teeth, minor misalignment, spaces or gaps between teeth, crooked or poorly spaced teeth, etc.

They are typically made from porcelain or resin composite materials, each of which offers unique benefits. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers. Resin veneers are thinner and require the removal of less of the tooth surface before placement, although porcelain veneers tend to look more natural.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are placed over the teeth. They are custom-made for each patient’s teeth to ensure the most natural appearance. Dental-grade ceramic is widely used to make such veneers, which offers excellent strength and durability.

Veneers are a great option for correcting the appearance of teeth. They can correct the structural issues and appearance of teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped, misaligned, or irregularly shaped, and also close small gaps between teeth.

Composite veneers

Composite veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that adhere to your natural tooth structure. While not as durable as porcelain veneers, composite veneers can last between five and ten years. They are less expensive, and the process can be completed in as little as two visits.


Lumineers are similar to veneers, only they require less preparation beforehand. They’re made of a special porcelain material that’s thinner than traditional veneers, and they’re also placed without shaving away as much enamel. Some patients may not want to go through the process of traditional veneers, and very thin veneers may create a bulky appearance. Lumineers are a great option for such patients.

Treatment procedure

During the initial diagnosis, we will prepare the tooth from the veneer by removing a layer of enamel and taking a digital scan of the tooth. A 3D model will be made using this data, which will be sent to a laboratory for preparing the veneer. Once done, we will etch the tooth and place the veneer on it to check for a suitable fit and contour. Dental adhesives will be used to bond the veneer to the tooth and a bite test will ensure your natural bite is not disrupted.
