Veneers

 

Dental veneers are wafer-thin, translucent ceramic shells that are placed over the tooth and applied with special glue. Veneers are predominantly used on the frontal teeth. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.
