Veneers


Porcelain veneers


If your front teeth are cracked, stained or poorly aligned, veneers will give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment.
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail and is held there by a special strong bond (a little like super glue).
A veneer takes at least two visits (one visit if CEREC is used); the first to prepare the tooth and to match the shade, and the second to fit it. Before bonding it in place, your dentist will show you the veneer on your tooth to make sure you are happy with it.
If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.

Discoloured, chipped or cracked teeth can benefit from a veneer.

A thin layer of the tooth surface is shaved off.

A veneer is made to fit perfectly, protecting the tooth underneath.



Composite veneers


Sometimes a natural colour 'composite' material is used instead of porcelain. The appearance and durability of the veneers is not as good as porcelain, but they are considerably cheaper.
