• What are Veneers?

    Are your teeth chipped, cracked, crooked or stained? then veneers may be your ideal solution and you may be interested in understanding what dental veneers are and how they work.

    What are veneers?

    Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured porcelain or glass/plastic layers fixed onto the front of your teeth that can be a suitable option if you have teeth with gaps, that are stained, discoloured, broken or chipped, crowded-in or crooked, oddly-shaped or badly-aligned.

    What types of veneers are there?

    There are two types of veneers; Porcelain Veneers and Composite Resin Veneers.

    Porcelain veneers are made and bonded to your teeth. Resin veneers are put directly on your teeth. Both are designed to cover the front side of your teeth. Both are intended to fit your mouth and your smile to look natural. Caring for veneers is the same as cleaning natural teeth.

    There is more information about Veneers in the treatment section here on the website.

    When would you choose to get veneers?

    Veneers are a quick way to a beautiful smile, and this treatment is perfect for people with teeth that are stained, chipped or have gaps.

    Veneers are however largely a permanent treatment and having them placed is a big decision. Before you and your dentist decide the procedure is right for you, it’s important to get the right information about veneers, their cost and how best to care for them.
