In dentistry, a veneer is a conservative treatment used to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, the form, shape, position or color of teeth.

There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain.

A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a dental resin cement. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.
