Ready for your close up? Veneers are a great way to improve your smile.

These strong, thin pieces of porcelain are bonded to your teeth and can repair chips, damage from decay, stains or improve teeth that have discoloured with age. They can also help close gaps between teeth or with a bit of contouring, correct slightly crowded or overlapping teeth.

We also use veneers for cosmetic reasons instead of crowns, which are better for badly damaged or decayed teeth.

What to expect

  • Your tooth enamel will be ground down slightly in order to accommodate the veneer.
  • Veneer preparations often require the use of local anesthetic.
  • Depending on colour and shade, veneers may take more than one appointment to complete.
