What is Veneering?
Veneer is a thin layer of restorative material place over a tooth surface to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damaged tooth surface.
There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth by using a resin cement. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.
