Veneers are made out of porcelain and are used mainly for aesthetic reasons.
Veneers are used to make unattractive teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong adhesive bond, very little preparation of the tooth is needed.
Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth .
A accurate shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth generally.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps or make improvements to misplaced teeth when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable or wanted.
Wherever extensive veneers are to be considered we always provide a tailor-made model showing the cosmetic improvement to be offered before any treatment is undertaken so that a full understanding of what can be achieved is considered.
