Veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect its surface from damage. Veneers will provide you with a uniform colour, shape and symmetry.
Veneers can be of two types
- Ceramic/ Porcelain Veneer – It is a very thin shell of ceramic/ porcelain placed over a tooth to mimic the appearance of a well formed and aesthetically pleasing/ appealing tooth.
- Composite Veneers – A thin layer of composite resin bonded to existing tooth.
Veneers can be used for
- Malformed teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- To close the gaps
- Crooked teeth
- For teeth which do not respond to whitening.
