So What Are Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are made from thin ceramic pieces that are permanently fused over your teeth to make it whiter. Veneers are recommended for individuals who wish to conceal their yellow-stained teeth.

Dental veneers look so real. The porcelain material resembles your real teeth. And because veneers also reflect light, no one can tell that it’s fake. Another advantage of dental veneers is it can whiten your smile. Unlike your real teeth that absorbs stain from food and drinks, dental veneers are resistant to stain so you don’t have to worry about teeth discoloration while on veneers. Since it is designed to attach to your tooth’s enamel, it can cover any tooth problem while at the same time protect your enamel. The process of attaching veneers is minimally invasive and you get fast results so there is no need for multiple visits to the dentist.

Compared to tooth bonding, veneers are relatively pricier, but the price isn’t fixed and it will mostly depend on the dentist and the number of teeth that need to be restored. Another thing is that even though veneers are designed to last for a long time, they are still susceptible to damage if you don’t care for it properly. There is always the possibility of it chipping or breaking.
