A veneer is the treatment of choice for such cosmetic problems. Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain or composite made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. The indications of veneers are as follows:

  • Used to improve the shape, color, and position of your teeth
  • Can be used to correct small gaps between teeth that are not suitable for orthodontic (braces) correction
  • Can brighten discolored tooth/teeth

There are many benefits of veneering and here are some of them.

  • They make teeth look natural and healthy
  • They are thin and are held in place using a strong adhesive
  • Very little tooth preparation is required

How is a tooth requiring veneer prepared?

  • The outer layer (enamel) of the teeth is removed to allow space for the veneer to be bonded
  • The amount of enamel removed is minute and equal to the thickness of the veneer
  • The impression of the prepared teeth will be taken and sent to the dental lab
  • A shade guide is used to match the color of the veneer to the surrounding teeth for natural appearance

What happens after the veneers get fitted onto the teeth?

  • Minor adjustments can be made after the veneer is fitted
  • Polishing can be done after the changes are made
