What are porcelain dental veneers?

Porcelain veneers are used to change the shape, colour or size of the teeth. This is achieved by placing the veneers over the front of the teeth.If your teeth have uneven surfaces, or are too big or too small, the porcelain veneers are ideal for you. Most people have imperfect teeth that are either crooked, oddly shaped, chipped, or discoloured, revealing a non–pleasing appearance.

Why get porcelain dental veneers?

Veneers are often referred to as ‘instant orthodontics’ as your dentist may be able to straightened your teeth in the space of two appointments as opposed to regular orthodontic treatment which may take a few years. There are a number of reasons as to why one may desire porcelain dental veneers:
  • To close diastemas (gaps between teeth)
  • To lengthen and reshape teeth
  • To repair chipped, broken or misshapen teeth
  • To cover stains and discolorations.
