A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that we will bond to your tooth to give it a whole new appearance. It is just like a false finger nail.

Veneers are made out of porcelain and are used mainly for aesthetic reasons.

Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed.


They are the most elegant and versatile way to improve your smile producing a natural result with both strength and beauty. They can change the colour, spacing, alignment, length or shape of your teeth, enhancing your smile with minimum adjustment to the tooth.

A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth (usually the upper ones) generally.

Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) is not suitable.
If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
