The two benefits that resin have over porcelain veneers are that they are much thinner and require less tooth removal to place. However, your dentist will discuss with you which type of veneer will be best suited for your needs.
Veneers are designed to correct problems with your smile. They hide stains and discoloration, repair the look of teeth that are worn down, cracked, or chipped and make teeth look more uniform by altering the size and shape. They make a crooked tooth look straight and they can be used to close gaps between teeth.
