It’s a cosmetic treatment that can dramatically improve imperfections if you have teeth that are stained, chipped or slightly mis-aligned.
A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain/ceramic (like a false fingernail) that is bonded on top of your own tooth. The shape of veneers can be adjusted to create a beautiful smile.
You can have just one veneer, the change the look or shape of a single tooth or a whole set, known as a smile makeover. We can change the look of a single tooth that is stained or damaged so that it blends in with your surrounding teeth.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps when braces are not suitable. A single veneer can sometimes be used to correct a minor misalignment. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can be fitted to bring it into line with surrounding teeth.
To allow enough room for the veneer to blend in with the surrounding teeth, a small amount of enamel will need to be removed from the surface of the tooth.
A veneer that matches in colour and is the correct size and shape is then cemented to the tooth.
Veneers can last for many years if properly looked after. They are made of strong and durable material. You should avoid chewing on hard materials and try to curb any habits like pen chewing or fingernail biting as this could damage them.Back to Cosmetic Dentistry
