What are Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, fingernail-like pieces of porcelain that slip over the front of the tooth to change the colour and or shape of the tooth to improve the smile.

The teeth usually require a degree of preparation prior to fabrication and bonding of the veneers. The entire process is reasonably quick and straightforward and can give a fabulous result.

Veneers can be used for a number of improvements in a smile from repairing a cracked single tooth to straightening crooked, overlapping or spaced teeth. Discolouration and antibiotic staining, along with spaced twisted and chipped teeth are the most common problems.

Veneers are made with Cerec Cad Cam technology. They are also coloured to match your existing teeth or create a new look altogether. Porcelain veneers are applied to the front surface of each damaged tooth and attached with special cement. They require no additional care beyond regular brushing, flossing and regular visits to your dentist
