– Cork Dental SmilesDental Veneers – otherwise known as porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are permanently bonded to the front of the tooth, resulting in a drastic improvement in the appearance of the tooth or teeth.
When do you need Veneers?
Veneers are a cosmetic treatment used to improve the appearance of teeth. They can be made of composite or porcelain. Composite veneers are made directly in the mouth. Porcelain veneers typically involve the removal of a minimal layer of tooth structure. The laboratory then fabricates a thin porcelain layer which is subsequently bonded to the front visible surface of the tooth. They improve the appearance of teeth by improving their colour, shape, and/or size.
- A veneer can make a chipped tooth look whole again.
- Veneers may be used to close small gaps between teeth.
- If a single tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer may sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
- Spacing between teeth
- Irregular shaped/chipped teeth
- Discoloured teeth
Benefits of Veneers
This small animation shows you the process of installing veneers.
Porcelain Veneers look more lifelike than similar enhancements. Cosmetic dental bonding can correct similar flaws, but the material is opaque, meaning it does not reflect light the way porcelain does.
Whilst porcelain Veneers may typically cost more than bonding or teeth whitening, they will usually have a much smaller price tag than dental crown or implants.
