Veneers are similar to bonding, and can be used for correcting discoloration, teeth that are spaced widely apart, or for broken teeth. They can also be used as an alternative to braces to correct minor crooked or overlapping teeth. Veneers are a durable, thin shell made of porcelain. Veneers get bonded to the front of your tooth.
Veneers are often chosen over bonding because of their durability. Veneers usually last five to ten years longer than bonding because they are made of porcelain. They are also more natural-looking because of how they reflect light.
