A Veneer is an extremely natural looking dental restoration that covers the outside or visible surface of teeth. A veneer can change shape and colour of a tooth as well as hide defects. It is bonded into place and cannot be taken off. Porcelain veneers are ideal to mask discolouration or correct chipped or crooked teeth. By bonding a thin piece of ceramic porcelain onto the front surfaces of your teeth, it can provide a natural looking smile with minimal tooth preparation. For minor chips and discolorations, composite veneers may be all that is needed to enhance your smile. It is a quicker method and more cost effective than ceramic porcelain veneers, but more susceptible to staining and chipping.
