Veneers can be used to make stained or discolored teeth look brighter. They hide many imperfections, like broken or cracked teeth. They can make tiny teeth bigger and, in some cases, align slightly crooked teeth without orthodontics.

Dental veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or a resin composite that are permanently bonded to the teeth, covering the teeth underneath. Porcelain veneers are most popular, as they have the translucent look of real teeth and tend to resist stains better than resin.
