A veneer is a new face for your tooth. These are usually custom made from porcelain but can be made from resin. Veneers are extremely versatile and can be used to align crowded or protruding teeth, to close gaps, or lighten tooth colour.
Their strength and appearance is very natural and they can really make a huge difference to your smile.
Having a veneer fitted at Shape Dental Clinic will usually take three visits. At the first visit you have your check up and we plan your treatment.
At the second visit the tooth is prepared and the shades are matched. The veneer is fitted at the third visit.
Your teeth are prepared by removing very thin layer of enamel from the outer surface of the tooth, so that the veneer can be attached at a later date. An impression of the teeth will be taken and the colours matched on a shade guide.
Depending on the site of the prepared tooth you may need to wear a temporary veneer for about two weeks while your veneer is prepared. ●●●
