Veneers are thin pre-shaped shells that cover damaged top or bottom front teeth, fix gaps and change the shape and size of your mouth. They are made of either porcelain or tooth-coloured composite resin material.
Veneers can last for many years with careful daily oral hygiene. They look very natural and are often an irreversible process because a small amount of enamel is usually removed to make room for the thickness of the shell. Once the veneer is applied, the teeth must be periodically re-veneered or crowned if a problem occurs or if decay develops near the veneer.
