Dental veneers are thin pieces of tooth colored porcelain or resin composite material which are bonded to the front of the tooth to improve its appearance and / or functionality. Both materials have their own set of advantages. Porcelain veneers are more stain resistant and better reflect light. Resin veneers, being thinner, require removal of less of the original tooth and are often more affordable. Your dentist can advise you on which material will work best for your personal dental needs.
Just a few reasons to get veneers are:
- Tooth discoloration
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
- Smiles with gaps between the teeth
If you are experiencing any of the above problems, veneers may be your best solution. Call Dr. Talmood at (714) 699-9969 to discuss your options.
