Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers are used as a way  of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing gaps between teeth or repairing chips and cracks. Veneers are thin slices of porcelain which are made to fit precisely over the visible surface

How are veneers made?

We remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth, usually the same thickness as the veneers will be. We then take an impression which is sent to a dental technician for the veneers to be made in the laboratory. After this, we bond the veneers to your tooth to form a strong and natural-looking repair. Sometimes we use a natural colour ‘composite’ material instead of porcelain.

 

Alternatively, Composite veneers can be completed in one visit. These involve bonding tooth-coloured filling material to the front of the tooth. They are slightly more prone to staining and have a shorter life, but are easily replaced.

 

Veneers are used to adjust and enhance the appearance of your teeth, improving your smile.

Based on your needs, we can adjust the shape and colour of your veneers to match your desired look. Veneers can be used in single cases or placed all over which is known as a smile makeover.
