Transform a tooth with porcelain veneers
If you have tooth that you want to conceal, perhaps because it is discoloured, irregular in shape or damaged, veneers offer a minimally invasive way to cover the problems. Veneers are thin tooth-coloured shells that fit to the front of the tooth. They are often likened to false nails.
Veneers are a popular way to improve a smile as they require little preparation. Only a very thin layer of enamel needs to be removed – if any.
We are able to create veneers at our practice with our CEREC milling machine. You will be able to have your veneer fitted on the same day.
Looking after your veneer
After fitting, it is important to keep your veneer well-maintained with regular brushing and flossing. Your dentist and hygienist will show you how to keep on top of your dental hygiene and keep a close eye on the health of your teeth and gums.
Although veneers are resilient, it is important to treat them with care, so try not to bite your fingernails or chew pen tops, or use your teeth to open anything. Also, it is probably best to steer clear of very hard foods that could cause damage to the veneer.
