Veneers are thin moulds, commonly made from porcelain, that are placed on the front surface of a tooth. They are an effective solution for correcting stained, crooked, or chipped teeth, and can also be used for covering gaps between teeth where orthodontic treatment cannot be used.
Veneers improve the aesthetics of your smile by being bonded to the front surface of the tooth only – no extractions needed – and they take the shape, size, and colour of regular teeth, creating a natural look. Discuss with your dentist to find a healthy shade of white that looks great in your mouth. Our dentists at Crestmead Dental are fully trained and qualified to give patients amazing veneers. We use the latest technology to get quality results for every procedure.
Why Choose Veneers?
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment for multiple reasons, including:
Types of Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a thin shell that is bonded to the front of the teeth, and their appearance resembles that of a natural tooth. They can also be made to fit into the gap left by part of a missing tooth. These can be added to your dental formula after your dentist prepares the teeth by removing small amounts of enamel. The dentist then makes a mold of the prepared teeth, and attaches the custom-porcelain shells to fit.
These veneers are made from a tooth-coloured resin material and are bonded to the tooth. They are easy to attach, although aren’t as durable as porcelain.
Custom resin veneers don’t require too much natural enamel to be removed. Our dentists sculpt the composite material, harden it using a specialist light, and then polish it to resemble natural teeth.
