What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance.
These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their shape, size or length.
Types of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers.
What types of problems do Dental Veneers fix?
Veneers are routinely used to fix:
• Teeth that are discoloured due to root canal treatments, stains from Tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride and large resin fillings
• Teeth that are worn down
• Teeth that are chipped or broken
• Teeth that are misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped
• Teeth with gaps between them. Used to close the space between these teeth
