Many film stars, pop stars and presenters have chosen veneers as they can transform your smile!
Dental veneers can be made from a variety of different materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin ones and look more natural. However resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of your tooth's surface. The shells are bonded to the front of your teeth changing their colour, shape, size, or length. You'll need to discuss which material will suit you best with the dentist.
They can also help you if you are unhappy with
- The size of your teeth either large or small
- With twisted teeth
- Unsightly gaps in your teeth
- Discoloured patches on your teeth
- The overall shape of your teeth
- The way your gums look
- How much tooth is showing
Porcelain veneers can be used on one tooth or multiple teeth.
When they are used on multiple groups of your teeth, porcelain veneers usually dramatically improve your smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
