Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth and improve their overall appearance.  They are made of either thin plastic resin or porcelain and can be placed to:

  • correct poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth
  • close gaps between teeth
  • mask internal stains
  • restore partially broken-down teeth

Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel unless large changes in alignment are being made. If large changes are made, it will be necessary to remove more tooth structure to correctly align the teeth.

Placing veneers is usually an irreversible process because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.
