Teeth can be stained by the food and drink we consume. Smoking can also further stain teeth and darken the natural white shade. Your smile is the first thing that people notice about you and we can help you achieve a great smile.
Dental veneers have long been used mainly for aesthetic reason. If your teeth are stained, chipped or damaged, veneers can be used to give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment.
What exactly are dental veneers?
A veneer is a porcelain facing on the front of your tooth to improve their cosmetic appearance. Veneers are made out of porcelain and can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth.
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in a place by a special strong bond very little preparation of the tooth is needed. A precise 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, when orthodontics (braces) is not suitable.
If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
