Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment used to cover up cracks, gaps, and chips in the teeth. They can also be used to address minor overlapping issues. Designed to be used on teeth that present cosmetic issues, rather than clinical issues they are very natural looking and durable, leaving behind the ultimate, aesthetically pleasing finish.
Veneers sit on top of the natural teeth like a kind of cap. A thin layer of the tooth will need to be removed in order to successfully apply your veneers, but thanks to advancements and innovations in the field, it is much less invasive a treatment than it used to be.
Veneers are often made of porcelain, a highly durable, natural looking material that can be shade-matched to the teeth. More recently, we have been able to use composite to create veneers. This is another durable and natural-looking option which can be shaped and applied with skill by our dentists.
Veneers are a good option for patients looking to address cosmetic, rather than clinical issues with their teeth. If you’re unhappy with your smile and the way it looks, then veneers could be the way forward. It’s important to remember, however, that this is a permanent treatment that cannot be reversed. Our team will be able to help you decide which treatment is the right one for you at a consultation.
