Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and colour) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded directly onto the front surfaces of the teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns, and the ideal solution for treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable though and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long-lasting smile.
