Veneers are usually either a laboratory manufactured ceramic casing or a composite resin material just like the materials used in white fillings, which is applied similarly to paint.
Here at Belle Dental, we focus our efforts into composite veneers, as they do not require any loss of existing tooth structure. Ceramic veneers, on the other hand, do require some form of preparation of the tooth in order to place the veneers. This is because ceramic veneers are thicker, and therefore need the tooth to be reduced so the size looks natural. The grinding down of the teeth is why Dr Huszti and Belle Dental would recommend against ceramic veneers if composite veneers are an option.
