Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, while at the same time improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth.

They are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue), so very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don't need any preparation at all. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten the front teeth.

A veneer can also make a chipped tooth look intact again. The porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth with a thicker section replacing the broken part. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable or if a tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
