What are veneers?
A dental veneer is a layer of material placed over the surface of a tooth that works both to improve it atheistically and to protect the surface of the natural tooth from damage. There are two types of veneer – a composite or a porcelain veneer. Both types of veneer are created by a dental technician in a lab and then fixed to the surface of the tooth. However, composite veneers can also be placed directly onto the tooth surface and built up in the mouth to create the desired effect.
A dental veneer is the perfect option for you if you are looking to improve the overall look of your smile by correcting a few minor imperfections. The application of veneers is also a remarkably quick process. Once a mould is taken of the tooth involved, your dentist will prepare the tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel from the surface of the tooth to ensure the veneer can be attached strongly. This can be done with or without local anaesthetic as it is not often an uncomfortable experience. Veneers can be used to close gaps between teeth, improve the look of stained and chipped teeth and also to straighten slightly crooked teeth back into place.
