A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over the surface of the tooth. It can improve the appearance of a discoloured or chipped tooth as well as closing gaps between front teeth.
A great way to disguise broken, misshapen or crooked teeth, and as you can see from these before and after photos – they can make a dramatic difference.
A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten your front teeth. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look whole again. The porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth, with a thicker section replacing the broken part. 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.
