Veneers are dental appliances that are made of porcelain. They are very thin wafer-like structures and are bonded to the frontal surface of a tooth. They have several aesthetic and functional uses.
What are the uses of veneers?
- When a tooth is cracked, a veneer can be used to prevent the enlargement of the crack and to make the tooth stable.
- A severely discolored tooth can be made to look aesthetically better using a veneer.
- Bonding veneers can reduce the excessive spacing between two adjacent teeth.
- Veneers help in restoring the shape and contour of the teeth, which are chipped or misshapen.
- Misaligned or crooked teeth can be appropriately aligned using veneers.
- Veneers help to restore teeth that have faced significant wear.
