If you have chipped, broken, smaller, or discolored teeth, then dental veneers are the answer to your cosmetic teeth concerns. Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells designed to improve the appearance of your teeth.
While some people get just one veneer to fix a broken or chipped tooth, some get the whole front set corrected with five to eight veneers for an even and symmetric smile. Also, you can choose from different types – porcelain, resin-composite, and no prep veneers.
Most commonly, dental veneers are made using porcelain or composite resin – they are also known as traditional veneers. But these require intensive prep and grinding down the tooth surface. A quicker and easier type of dental veneer is the “no-prep” one, which is applied through a different process and doesn’t require local anesthesia. Depending on what veneers you choose, dental veneer cost varies.
