Today modern veneers can transform your teeth from being stained, badly shaped or crooked to natural good looking teeth by placing a veneer on top.
Veneers are thin, custom made individual shells of natural tooth-coloured porcelain or composite that cover the front of the tooth.
It is necessary to remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the veneer which usually makes this an irreversible process.
Crafted by a technician who works from an impression provided by your dentist, the veneer will match surrounding teeth to give a healthy natural appearance.
Veneers can sometimes be built up on the front of the tooth using composite (coloured filling material) by your dentist.
Veneers will need replacement throughout life however, for many people the dramatic improvements in appearance are worth it.
