Dental veneers

Veneers let you have a bespoke smile where you are involved in the design!

A veneer is a facing on the front of your teeth usually your top teeth, it is just like a false finger nail. Veneers are made out of tooth-coloured composite or procelain and are not just used for aesthetic reasons. The healthy function of the bite, muscles and jaw can be restored at the same time as the teeth!

Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Veneers therefore improve the colour, shape and position of teeth.

A precise shade of porcelain or composite can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth generally.

Porcelain veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
