What are Veneers?

Posted .

Veneers are a super thin shell of composite resin or porcelain that are designed to fit in front of teeth. Veneer treatments require extremely little anesthesia (if any at all) and can be the best choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers can be placed to hide stained teeth, discolored fillings, and even gaps between teeth.
