Porcelain veneers are very thin shells, the thickness of a fingernail that are placed over your existing teeth to provide a new surface, whiter colour or new shape. They are made of translucent tooth coloured porcelain materials and provide a strong aesthetic solution to your cosmetic dentistry concerns.
Veneers leave the natural tooth structure in place and simply cover over imperfections. If you believe your teeth are too small, round, triangular or any other odd shape, the veneer shell can cover this and make the appearance of your individual teeth uniform. This technique can be used for one or more teeth depending on your individual requirements.
What can porcelain veneers achieve?
Porcelain veneers can transform an average smile with discoloured teeth and mismatched shapes into a straight, white, aesthetically pleasing smile.
There are many benefits of porcelain veneers. A veneer procedure can correct many dental problems at the same time including:
-Small gaps between teeth
-Chips and cracks on teeth
-Stubborn discoloration that does not respond to tooth whitening
-Minor crookedness or misalignment
-Mismatched tooth sizes
-Uneven tooth shapes
