Cosmetic » Porcelain Veneers
- A veneer is a very thin porcelain facing bonded on to the front of your teeth (usually your top teeth).If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or malaligned, then porcelain veneers can give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment.
Veneers are made out of porcelain and are used mainly for aesthetic reasons.
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond, very little enamel removal is needed.

Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth.
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 (usually the upper ones) generally.
Veneers 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.
