Veneers

VeneersVeneers are thin individual hand-crafted wafers of porcelain, bonded to teeth to create a new front surface. Veneers can be used to change shape, size, colour and position of a tooth. They are often described as being like a 'false finger nail' stuck onto the surface of the tooth.

By employing veneers, it is possible to close gaps, whiten discoloured teeth and align crowded teeth.
