A tooth veneer is a shell-like porcelain or composite material placed over the outer teeth to correct and hide worn enamel, uneven tooth alignment, discoloration, or cracks and chips.
Who would have thought that the world of teeth could include so much?
The most important thing about veneers to note is that the application process is irreversible. That being said, if you're planning on getting veneers sometime in the future, or if you already have them, it is still important to brush and floss each day, and be aware that coffee and other substances can still cause stains.
If you have further question regarding veneers, it's important to consult your dentist. The application is reserved for those who have severely damaged teeth, and the process is not used solely for cosmetic reasons.
