Cosmetic dentistry treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth. These treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges, tooth fillings, implants and tooth whitening.
WHAT IS A VENEER?
Veneers are thin slices of porcelain that are precisely made to fit over the visible surface of the front teeth.
WHY MIGHT I HAVE A VENEER?
Veneers are an ideal way of treating discolored or unsightly teeth. They help in closing the gaps between front teeth or repairing chipped and cracked teeth.
HOW ARE VENEERS FITTED?
A small amount of enamel of the same thickness as the veneer, is removed from the tooth. The dentist then takes an impression and sends that to the dental technician, who makes the veneer in laboratory. The veneer is then bonded to the tooth to form a strong and natural-looking repair.
WHAT IS A PORCELAIN VENEER?
Porcelain veneers are glass-like ceramic porcelain placed on the surface of the teeth providing bright, straight, and natural-looking smiles.
