Dental veneers are custom-made thin shells that can be bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve your smile. There are two types of veneers: porcelain and resin composite. Porcelain veneers tend to resist stains better than resin composite veneers.
On the other hand, resin veneers are thinner than porcelain veneers and the amount of tooth surface that needs to be removed in order to apply the materials is smaller than porcelain veneers. Your dentist in Modesto will discuss with you to determine the best choice of veneer material for you.
Generally, veneers are used to repair the following.
- Teeth that are discolored -- either because of root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes; or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
- Teeth with gaps between them
