Veneers can make your teeth look natural and healthy, improving the colour, shape and position of your teeth. They can hide stained, chipped, misshapen or crooked teeth, or cover gaps in teeth where orthodontic treatment may not be suitable.
A veneer is a thin, custom-made moulding that is used to cover the front surface of a tooth, usually made from porcelain.
Will a veneer look natural?
A mould is taken of the mouth to ensure that the veneer is made to correct size and shape, to blend in with your natural teeth. The colour of the veneer is also matched to your other teeth, to ensure that a natural look is achieved. If a number of veneers are being replaced, the colour may be further lightened if required.
Caring for veneers
Regular visits to your dentist and dental hygienist are recommended, where they can check and clean the veneer and recommend an appropriate home care regime.
