A Veneer Is A Thin Layer Of Tooth-Coloured Material That Is Put Onto The Front Of The Tooth To Make It Look Better. This Is often carried out when a Tooth Might Have Been Damaged By Decay Or An Accident, Or Might Be Badly Discoloured e.g. after root canal treatment.
Benefits of Veneers include:
- Greatly Improve Your Appearance
- Hide Imperfections
- Require Very Little Natural Tooth Preparation and so are not as invasive as crowns Historically, Veneers would be Made Out Of Porcelain by the lab And then be Cemented on To The Tooth.
With advancements in materials today, Some Veneers can be Built Up On The Tooth Directly - Using The Same Material That Is Used For White Fillings.
