Veneers

A veneer is a thin tooth coloured shell placed on the front of a tooth to improve the appearance of discoloured, irregularly shaped or damaged teeth. They are usually fitted to the front upper and lower teeth, and made from ceramic, porcelain or a composite material.

Veneers offer a minimally invasive way to transform a tooth as only a very thin layer of enamel is removed (if any) prior to fitting.

Treatment steps

  • If necessary, a tiny layer of enamel is removed from the surface of the tooth to accommodate the veneer.
  • Once the tooth has been prepared, impressions are taken so a customised veneer can be manufactured. The colour of your teeth is also noted so it will blend in perfectly.
  • The veneer is bonded to your tooth with a strong dental adhesive.

Veneers are tough restorations but they can be damaged if not treated with care. Cut up hard foods before eating and do not open anything with your teeth, such as crisp packets or bottles, and avoid biting your nails or chewing pencils. In addition to these precautions, make sure you practice good oral hygiene and see your dentist regularly.
