Essential Dental Care


A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Sometimes a natural-colour ‘composite’ material is used instead of porcelain.

When would I need a veneer?
Veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. 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.
They 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.
What are the advantages of veneers?
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special, strong adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don’t need any preparation at all.

What are the benefits of veneers?
Veneers provide a very natural finish. If you are concerned about  misshapen, chipped or discoloured teeth, veneers can offer a long- lasting cosmetic solution.
 The colour of the porcelain veneer can be selected to match your  existing teeth or to make them appear whiter. The porcelain finish also  mimics the light-reflecting qualities of natural teeth, helping you achieve  a brighter, natural -looking smile.
 Porcelain veneers are also more stain resistant and durable than  composite bonding, and if looked after properly, can last for many years.
Veneers offer a gentler approach to altering a tooth’s shape or colour than crowns, as only a small amount of enamel has to be removed to fit  the veneer. Yet they offer similar strength and very natural looking  results.
 Dental veneers are a long-lasting cosmetic solution to imperfect teeth. They can match the colour of your existing teeth and look very natural.
