VENEERS

Veneers are thin tooth-coloured shells that are placed on the front of a tooth to improve the appearance. They are beneficial for discoloured, irregularly shaped or damaged teeth.

Veneers offer a minimally invasive way to transform a tooth as only a very thin layer of enamel is removed (if any) prior to fitting.

Veneers are tough restorations but they can be damaged if not treated with care, so you need to ensure that you practice good oral hygiene and see your dentist regularly.

Veneers are made from ceramic, porcelain or a composite material.

What Happens during an Veneers Appointment

 

During a routine appointment, 

  • If necessary, a tiny layer of enamel is removed from the surface of the tooth to accommodate the veneer.
  • Impressions are taken so a customised veneer can be manufactured. The colour of your teeth is also noted so it will blend in.
  • If necessary, a tiny layer of enamel is removed from the surface of the tooth to accommodate the veneer.
  • Once the tooth has been prepared, the veneer is bonded to your tooth with a strong dental adhesive.
