Veneers

Veneers

Dental veneers are thin laminates of porcelain that are bonded on to the surface of the tooth, in a similar fashion to how a false fingernail fits over your existing nail, to improve the appearance of the teeth.

Veneers can be used to mask discolouration and imperfections such as chips on the tooth, close spaces between the teeth and, in some cases, assist in the realignment of crooked teeth when orthodontic treatment is not considered appropriate.

In most cases, the teeth being treated need a little preparation to accommodate the veneers. A small amount front surface of the tooth is removed, the same thickness as the new veneer so the tooth remains the same size. An impression will be taken and in some cases, temporary veneers are put in place whilst your own personal veneers are being created, which usually takes around 2 weeks. The colour of the surrounding teeth is matched on a shade guide to make sure that the veneer will look entirely natural.

The final cementation is accomplished using dental adhesives ensuring a strong bond between the veneer and the tooth. Porcelain veneers produce excellent aesthetic results and are resistant to further staining.
