A cosmetic dental veneer is an extremely thin covering of porcelain or white filling material that is bonded to the front of a tooth, rather like a false finger nail.
Fitting veneers is a straightforward process: very little preparation of the natural tooth is needed, unlike crowns.
Veneers are an excellent way of achieving an impressive transformation, hiding imperfections such as discolouration. They are long-lasting and resistant to permanent staining. The veneer also protects the natural tooth behind it. If you want a faster result than a brace can achieve, veneers can also be used to straighten crooked teeth and to fill gaps.
For true film star-glamour, you may be having all your teeth veneered. If not, it’s our job to make sure that your new veneer is an exact match for the surrounding teeth. You won’t be able to tell which tooth has the veneer on it.
Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials.
