Veneers are usually made up of porcelain for high durability and also to bring an extra shine to the teeth. These are bright facings, which are quite thin and are custom-made. Veneers are strongly bound to the natural teeth and are used solely to have a better outlook of the teeth altogether. Veneers are totally safe, and they bring that extra shine to the teeth. Instead of making use of crowns, veneers are more preferably used especially for cases of crowded, chipped or discolored teeth. These might be the best way to hide yellow teeth and thus, are used extensively nowadays. Veneers are usually placed over the upper front teeth unlike crowns, which are placed over molar and premolar teeth.
