What are dental veneers?

A Veneer is a thin layer of tooth-coloured material that is put onto the front of the tooth to make it look better. This I because the tooth might have been damaged by decay or an accident, or might be badly discoloured for some reason.

What will my dentist do?

Veneers can be made out of composite or porcelain by a dental technician. Usually you will have to attend the practice for 1-2 appointments for this type of veneer.

  • Your dentist will check any fillings in the teeth first.

  • A very small amount of natural tooth material needs to be removed – just enough to prevent the veneer making the tooth look or feel bulky. For this reason, it may not be necessary to numb the tooth.

  • Preparation time will depend on how damaged the tooth is and whether or not it may need building up with a filling first.

  • The dentist will need to use a putty-like material to make a mould of your mouth (also known as an impression) so the dental technician can tell the shape and size of the veneer to make for you.

  • Your dentist will then glue the veneer made by the technician to the tooth when you next visit.


Improve appearance

Veneers can greatly improve your appearance. They hide imperfections, and you lose very imperfections, and you lose very little natural tooth material.

Protect teeth

Veneers also protect teeth from any ore damage. Tooth surface can be dissolved away by acid in the mouth (usually from too frequent consumption of certain kinds of food and drink); this can make teeth very sensitive to hot and cold. In this situation, veneers can protect the teeth.
