Veneers are thin, shell-like dental restorations that can be attached to the front surface of teeth. It helps enhance appearance, esthetics and provide a quick fix for minor to moderate problems of teeth. 

Dental veneers are meant to beautifully restore teeth that are damaged by gaps, wearing, dental stains, chipping, injury, or misalignments.

There are several types of veneers that you can choose from that can restore your damaged teeth. The most popular types of dental veneers are composite and porcelain veneers. 

What are composite veneers?

Composite veneers are restorations that can be attached to the enamel in one visit. The process is quite painless. The materials and techniques used would be matched to the color of your natural teeth. The dentist would help you choose the right type of veneer with a customized shape and size, giving your restored teeth a natural appearance.
