A veneer is a thin layer of tooth-coloured material that is put onto the front of the tooth to make it look better. This is done because the tooth might have been damaged by decay or an accident, or might be badly discoloured for some reason.
Veneers are usually made out of porcelain by a dental technician. You will have to visit the dentist more than once for this type of veneer.
