Are your teeth stained, chipped, or not aligned? Veneers may be a suitable treatment option to consider because they look like natural teeth and can be more minimally invasive than other options.
A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false fingernail) that is bonded on top of your own tooth. Based on your needs, we can adjust the shape of your veneers to make your teeth overall look longer or closer together for example. You can have just one veneer or a whole set, known as a smile makeover.
For a single stained tooth, we can also match the precise shade of porcelain to give it a lighter appearance and fit in with the surrounding teeth. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps when 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.
Veneers are not suitable in every case, they involve removing a thin layer from the front of the tooth. If other treatments such as invisible braces or white fillings can be used instead to improve the appearance of your teeth these will be discussed in your consultation.
