Veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-coloured covers designed to fit over the front surface of teeth to disguise imperfections. They are custom-made to conceal all manner of issues including misshapen teeth, small gaps, staining and chips.
Veneers are also minimally invasive as only a tiny fraction of tooth enamel needs removing before they are fixed in place.
Veneers are new facings for teeth which disguise a discoloured (rather than a damaged) tooth.
To fit a veneer, the front of the tooth is drilled away a little.
An impression is taken, and a thin layer of porcelain is fitted over the front of the tooth (similar to how a false fingernail is applied).
