Types of Dental Veneers
Dental Veneers may be used to:
- Close spaces between teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth

Composite Resin Veneers
Composite resin veneers are made of tooth colored, biocompatible material. The dental composite is applied directly to the tooth and skillfully sculpted for natural looking results. Composite resin veneers require little to no preparation to the tooth and are not permanent.
Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent shells of tooth-like material. Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and have similar light reflecting properties compared to natural teeth.
A Lumineer is a type of dental veneer. Though, we do not use the Lumineer brand, our dentists are able to offer similar restorations. Select patients are candidate for no-prep or minimal prep porcelain veneers. Your dentist can help you decide what type of porcelain veneer is right for you.
