Veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain restorations designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth.
They are usually made of porcelain and can be placed to:
- Correct poorly formed or mildly misaligned teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Mask internal stains
- Restore partially broken-down teeth
Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth with tooth-coloured resin cement. Several visits are necessary to complete treatment.
Patients should be aware that this is usually an irreversible process because it is necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the veneer. A detailed discussion of this treatment will be undertaken prior to planning veneers as a treatment for you.
Veneers cost from £400 per tooth, depending on the complexity of the treatment you require. For a no-obligation consultation, please call us.
