What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic glued to the front of your teeth. For teeth that are severely discolored, chipped or misshapen, they create a durable and pleasing smile. Veneers are difficult to stain, making them popular for people seeking a perfect smile.
There are two types of veneers: Porcelain (indirect) veneers, which must first be created to fit your teeth in a dental laboratory and require two visits to the dentist. These last ten to fifteen years or more. Composite (direct) veneers, in which enamel is bonded to your tooth in a single visit, but only last five to seven years.
