What is a veneer?
It is an addition to your tooth wherein concerns such as the color, shape and aesthetics of your tooth can be enhanced.
This addition however is different to that of a crown since it is only added to the face of your tooth. Veneers are the perfect solution for teeth that no matter what type of whitening products you use or how many professional whitening sessions you have had, they still look yellowish.
