Veneers are thin porcelain shells that get bonded onto the front teeth. With veneers the shape and colour of your teeth can be changed to have a aesthetic appearance.
Composite veneers is an alternative to the porcelain veneers. Composite veneers can be directly bonded to the teeth ( like fillings) to change the shape and appearance of the teeth. Composite veneers are cheaper and quicker than porcelain veneers but does not last as long. Some patients opt for the composite veneers first as these are usually reversible. They can then at a later stage go for porcelain veneers if needed.
