Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth.
They are made of either thin plastic resin or porcelain and can be placed to:
- correct poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth
- close gaps between teeth
- mask internal stains
- restore partially broken-down teeth
Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth structure with tooth-coloured resin cement. Several visits are necessary to complete treatment.
Patients should be aware that this is usually an irreversible process because it's necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.
Porcelain Veneers are custom made porcelain that are used to cover the front surface of the tooth. Veneers are extremely versatile and can be used to close gaps or whiten discoloured teeth.
Porcelain veneers are strong and can last up to ten years, provide a lasting smile. They are natural looking and are easy to look after.
Porcelain veneers have created the perfect smile for many patients.
