Veneers are extremely versatile and can close gaps in your teeth, align crowding or protruding teeth or whiten discoloured teeth.
Great news! Veneers are no longer just available for the rich and famous; advances in technology mean dental veneers are much more affordable than you think.
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain which is designed to fit over the top of the natural tooth, and they can improve the colour, shape, and position of your teeth. They are extremely natural looking and involve very little preparation of the natural teeth due to the way they sit over the top of the tooth.
They are usually a technician made option and fixed with a special adhesive to hold them in place. Veneers can be used to replace a chipped front tooth. They can also be placed to close small gaps or straighten slightly crooked teeth where orthodontic treatment is not necessarily the best option.
A veneer can also be made using a composite filling material and building the teeth up, this process can be done in the surgery without sending off to the technician to be made.
