A functionally sound tooth can have imperfections that are aesthetically displeasing. These teeth can be suitable for veneers.
Veneers are thin, custom-made, tooth coloured shells which are fitted to the front surface of your tooth. They can be made from porcelain or ceramic materials to create a natural looking finish. They are commonly used on front teeth to enhance and/or change the appearance of your smile, effectively covering small areas of damage, mask discoloured teeth, close gaps and change the shape of one or more teeth. Veneers are strong and durable as they are securely fixed to your natural tooth. It is a minimally invasive treatment, as only a small amount of enamel structure, if any, needs to be removed in preparation for the veneer.
