Resin Veneers & Ceramic Veneers
Veneers are thin coatings of either composite resin or ceramic, which are bonded to the front surface of usually front upper teeth, as these teeth are the most visible.
Veneers are used to cover teeth which have a less desirable appearance, due to factors such as antibiotic staining (dark and light horizontal bands on the tooth surface), a mixture of past fillings on the tooth, or to mask the appearance of misaligned front teeth.
Composite resin veneers cost less than ceramic veneers and can be more easily repaired than ceramic veneers. However, composite resin veneers may not as natural as ceramic veneers. Ceramic veneers may also last relatively longer than composite veneers.
Although veneers require minimal tooth structure to be removed prior to their placement on the tooth, the procedure is usually irreversible and the veneers may need to be replaced after several years, especially if there has been a significant amount of gum recession around the teeth with veneers.
