Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of tooth coloured porcelain that is glued onto a tooth to alter the colour or look of the tooth but it will not affect the strength of the tooth (unlike a crown/cap). It is very similar to a false nail, as a veneer is very weak until it is glued onto the tooth.

The process of making a veneer is very similar to a crown. The tooth needs to be shaped to allow the veneer to fit, this means removing far less tooth than for a crown.

Not every tooth is suitable for a veneer, sometimes a crown is better and we would be pleased to advise you on your best option.
