Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are also called dental veneers, and they are thin, customised shells of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. The wafer-thin shells are bonded to the front of the teeth to change their size, shape, length or colour.

Types of dental veneers

Dental veneers can be made of two materials such as porcelain material or composite resin material. The porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains than resin veneers, and they are better at mimicking the light-reflecting properties of the natural teeth. However, before you make your choice, you will have to discuss the best choice for you with your dentist. You can also contact us at Smile Clinic London for more helpful information about dental veneers to make the right choice.

What kind of problems do dental veneers fix?

Dental veneers are routinely used to fix the following problems;

  • Discoloured teeth resulting from root canal treatment, large resin fillings, stains from drugs like tetracycline, excessive fluoride, etc
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Teeth that are worn down
  • Misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
