A veneer is a thin, custom-made layer of porcelain or composite material, designed to fit over the front of a prepared tooth to restore or improve its aesthetics.
Veneers are made of porcelain or composite materials, which are then colour-matched to the existing shade of your natural teeth. Developed in the early 1980s, continual developments in porcelain and resin technology has meant that veneers can now be made as thin as 0.2mm.
Teeth that have become discoloured, crooked or worn, chipped or damaged through an accident or decay can be rejuvenated simply and quickly with veneers. Veneers are one of the most durable, aesthetic and reliable forms of dental restorations available and can last for many years. Veneers can also enhance the appearance of existing crowns and bridges without the need for anaesthetic or drilling.
