Veneers are extremely thin ‘shells’ which are custom made to match your other teeth and to fit snugly to the one which needs improvement.
They can be made from porcelain or from composite resins and are bonded to the front of the teeth; this changes the colour, size, shape or length, depending on the cosmetic requirements. Porcelain veneers are better at resisting staining than Composite veneers and also are more like natural tooth enamel in the way they reflect light when you smile...…
Lumineers, are similar to standard porcelain veneers, but are fabricated made from a patented cerinate porcelain that is extremely thin (about the thickness of a contact lens) and very strong.
With Lumineers, the tooth surface does not need to be trimmed, so the procedure is quicker and totally painless.
