Opaque Veneers to Cover Dark Teeth
Opaque vs translucent #veneers #DrSoftTouch
Translucent veneers do indeed look more natural than opaque. Your dentist should be able the prep your teeth more, allowing for thicker veneers that will prevent show through without being bulky. I always recommend okaying your restorations before having them permanently bonded. That way, any necessary changes to shade, shape and fit can easily be made. I hope this helps.
