What are teeth veneers?
Veneers are a bit like the teeth’s equivalent of false nails. They are thin ‘covers’ made from either a porcelain or composite material placed on top of the natural, existing tooth or teeth and are designed to be more aesthetically pleasing (though with false nails this might be subjective!).
A key difference, however, is that veneers are likely to have a greater degree of permanence than false nails. They also impact a part of the body where greater care is required – unlike nails, teeth are not continually regrowing.
Dental veneers can change the shape, size and shade of teeth, filling gaps when orthodontics may not be an option or restoring the shape and colour of a chipped tooth.
