Veneers are a cosmetic treatment, offering the perfect way to improve the colour or shape of your teeth.
A veneer is a thin layer of either porcelain or composite material, which is placed over the surface of the natural tooth to correct issues such as discolouration or small chips. As well as providing a cosmetic service, veneers can also be used to protect a tooth that is damaged on the hard enamel surface.
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin but are also made from a very durable material. The veneer is bonded to the tooth using dental-grade cement for a permanent new look. Porcelain veneers are usually chosen for their excellent look and feel, which is particularly close to that of natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are the more long-lasting option, although both porcelain and composite veneers will last for years.
Composite veneers offer an alternative material and are made from an engineered resin. They are usually placed directly onto the tooth and shaped to match the surrounding teeth. Composite veneers are an economical solution that improves the appearance of your teeth. They are applied more quickly compared to porcelain veneers and can be completed in one visit. Composite veneers are the more affordable option but also have a lifespan that is shorter than porcelain veneers.
