Dental Veneers

A Veneer is a new front surface for a tooth which is made from porcelain or composite materials. Veneers are extremely robust and can be used to align crowding or protruding teeth, close gaps or lighten tooth colour. The strength and appearance of our dental veneers rivals that of natural teeth and they are generally used to make long lasting changes to the smile.


Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain Veneers are a thin piece of laboratory-made ceramic, which is bonded to the front surface of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are very durable and create a very life-like and natural tooth appearance. They are more expensive than composite veneers as more time, expertise and resources are required in order to fabricate and bond them to your teeth.

Composite Veneers
Composite resin is a tooth-colored filling material that is used to form dental veneers. An adequate amount of tooth structure is removed to allow for placement of composite resin in the desired shape without added tooth bulk. Bonding agent is applied. Composite resin is then added, light cured, then finished and polished.
