Veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are ultra-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material says cosmetic dentist in Shepperton.
The veneers are designed to cover the front surface of the teeth to improve appearance. Veneers provide virtually the ultimate in cosmetic enhancement, since they can be used to optimize tooth color, shape, size, texture, and shininess. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from composite resin. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Porcelain is also much more durable than resin---resin veneers are much more likely to chip than porcelain veneers. However, the superior properties of porcelain veneers come at a cost---they are typically more expensive than resin.
