Veneers are thin, bespoke shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth. They are made of either thin plastic resin or porcelain and can be placed to:
- correct poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth
- close gaps between teeth
- mask internal stains
- restore partially broken down teeeth
Tooth preparation can be minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth structure with tooth coloured resin cement. Several visits are necessary to complete treatment.
Patients should be aware that this usually involves the removal of a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accomodate the veneer.
