Dental veneers are very thin, shell-like pieces of porcelain that are bonded on to the front surface of a tooth to enhance its shape and colour. They are custom made by our skilled dental technicians in the dental laboratory to our prescription. Using veneers can minimise tooth tissue loss as sometimes no preparation needs to be carried out on the tooth, although it is usual to do some minimal preparation. Once constructed they are bonded into place with dental adhesives giving a long lasting, strong and aesthetic restorative solution.
Porcelain dental veneers restore a tooth to natural form and function – a very skilled achievement.
Porcelain dental veneers also help strengthen a tooth by adding an extra layer and structure, welcome in cases of severe tooth wear, erosion or abrasion.
