Veneers are used to improve the aesthetics of your smile, usually of the top six to ten teeth in the visible “smile zone”. They can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. The veneer is a thin shell that has been individually designed to fit the front surface of your teeth.
How can veneers help?
- Colour: a precise shade is chosen to improve a single or several discoloured teeth.
- Shape: veneers can be used where teeth are small and bulk needs to be added to make them more expressive and visible. A veneer can also make a chipped tooth look intact again.
- Position: if a tooth is slightly out of position or there is a gap between teeth, a veneer can sometimes be used to help align it with the others.
