Veneers are a shell that is both durable and thin. Made of porcelain, your dentist uses it to bond to the front of your tooth to correct the same issues that bonding fixes. This includes teeth that are broken, misshapen, discoloured, or spaced too widely apart. Veneers can also be used for slightly crooked teeth or on ones that overlap with each other. This helps to help teeth look straighter in less time than with braces.
