Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain facings which can dramatically improve the appearance of dark or mis-shapen front teeth. They are the gold standard of cosmetic dental treatment, made famous by Hollywood celebrities aiming for the perfect smile.
After slight contouring of the tooth/teeth, thin veneers are bonded to the teeth – with spectacular and permanent results. As no metal is used, the dark line often seen around crowned teeth is avoided!
Bonding is used to cosmetically improve chipped or discoloured front teeth. Composite white filling material is bonded to the tooth enamel using a very strong glue.
Improvements to the teeth’s appearance can be achieved in just one visit. It is an inexpensive alternative to veneers which can be easily replaced or repaired if required.
