A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is cemented onto your existing tooth and made to match your natural tooth shape and colour. Veneers are minimally invasive and can change the size, shape and colour of your teeth. With a natural natural look and feel, veneers can change your smile into the one you've always dreamed about.
Veneers are best used on anterior teeth to fix cracks, gaps, chips, discolouration and other aesthetic problems associated with a smile.
Veneers are designed with Cerec CAD/CAM technology and manufactured within the practice. They are then characterised (stained & glazed) according to your natural dentitions colour to replicate a natural-looking, beautiful tooth. This can be done not only to fix a single tooth, but to change the entire look of your smile with multiple veneers. Porcelain veneers are bonded onto the front surface of a tooth and require no additional care beyond regular brushing, flossing and regular visits to your dental hygienist.
Who is a candidate for veneers?
Patients with good oral health, minor aesthetic tooth problems or a damaged smile, are good candidates for veneers. Patients that have a worn down bite and suffer from severe attrition and abrasion on their teeth should consider Crowns in stead. Candidates should not be missing any teeth.
