A veneer is a tooth-coloured shell designed to conceal flaws such as chips, discolouration, small gaps or slight misalignment.
Smile enhancing veneers are usually fitted on the upper or lower front teeth and only a thin layer of tooth enamel, if any, needs removing before they are fixed securely in place.
How they help
- minimally invasive
- can protect a tooth from further damage
- provide a naturally healthy appearance
- cover unsightly teeth
Looking after your veneer
Ensure your veneer lasts for as long as possible by regularly brushing and flossing. We can demonstrate the most effective techniques for optimum oral hygiene and keep a close eye on the health of your teeth and gums.
Veneers are a durable way to cover unsightly teeth but, just like natural teeth, they can break or chip if not treated with a certain amount of care. Try not to open anything with your teeth or bite down on very hard foods.
