For hiding unsightly teeth
A veneer is a tailor-made restoration, produced from durable, tooth-like porcelain. It covers the front surface of a tooth to conceal a variety of defects, including chips and discolouration. Veneers can also be used to address mild crowding and small gaps in the teeth. A single veneer can cover one unsightly tooth or several can be used as part of a smile transformation.

More facts about veneers
- They offer a minimally invasive way to transform teeth as only a small layer of tooth, if any, needs to be removed.
- Veneers can prove to be a long-lasting solution but they do need to be treated with a little care as they can be damaged. Try not to bite your fingernails and avoid opening packets with your teeth.
