Dental veneers are classified as dental cosmetic appliances. Basically, dental veneers are custom-designed shells fitted on the surface of defective teeth to make them more attractive. Porcelain and composite resin are the two most common materials used in manufacturing dental veneers. These materials are ideal for dental veneers because they mimic the surface appearance of teeth.
Porcelain and composite resin also have the structural consistency of teeth enamel, making them resilient and adaptable on teeth surface. These materials are fashioned as dental veneers to cover tooth cracks, chips, worn enamel, and uneven teeth. Fitting dental veneers can also cover the abnormal spacing of teeth as a result of genetic predisposition.
In most cases of chipped or cracked teeth, simple bonding is the cheaper and more appropriate solution compared to dental veneers. However, if the chips or cracks are more severe, dental veneers are the recommended solution not only because of their aesthetic value but also because of their restorative and functional value.
Fitting dental veneers can be used as alternative to crowns and bridges. Since dental veneers are very thin layers of porcelain or composite resin, fitting them will not require invasive surgery and radical reshaping of the teeth.
