Dental veneers are thin, custom-made, tooth-coloured shells that fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. They are an excellent option to fix dental issues like cracks, chips, stains, smaller-than-average teeth and other cosmetic imperfections. Dental veneers are often made from porcelain or resin-composite materials and are permanently bonded to your teeth. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement.
Veneers can help you get your perfect smile!
Veneers are a very popular treatment option in cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are routinely used to fix:
- Teeth that are discoloured – either because of root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes; or the presence of large resin fillings that have discoloured the tooth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth those are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them)
