What are veneers?
If you’re looking for a quick solution for stained, chipped, misshaped or crooked or spaced teeth, veneers could be the answer. Dental veneers are thin sheets of ceramic material, which are coloured and shaped to match your teeth. They are placed on your natural teeth to cover imperfections and can even help close small gaps if orthodontic treatment isn’t suitable for you.
Porcelain or composite veneers?
Veneers can be made from porcelain ceramic or composite bonding material.
Porcelain veneers are the more expensive option, but look more attractive when they are in place. They are made in a laboratory and are glued onto the teeth.
Composite bonding veneers are made from a tooth-coloured resin and are directly sculpted by hand onto the teeth. They are less expensive than porcelain veneers and require less preparation of the tooth.
