A veneer is a very fine manufactured cover that can be placed over a tooth to help improve its appearance. The tooth may be irregular in size or shape or discoloured due to damage.
Provided the tooth is not rotten and does not need to be removed, a veneer is a quick, comfortable and easy way to dramatically change your smile.
Your tooth will be prepared prior to the manufacture of your veneer. This will involve removing a tiny layer of enamel. Your veneer will then be produced and fitted at a subsequent appointment around a week later.
To help your new veneer stick securely we will slightly abrade the old tooth. It will then be attached with a dental cement.
Veneers are strong and durable and therefore have the potential to last for many years with good care and attention.
