If your teeth have visible chips, staining or are misaligned then veneers may be able to provide you with a life changing new smile. A veneer can be compared to a false nail to understand the way in which the procedure will improve your teeth. Veneers are placed over teeth that have been damaged in some way, by either staining or physical damage, to cover the problem and improve the appearance of the teeth.

The width and appearance of the veneer can vary according to the patient's preferences. In terms of width, they can range from thin to ultra thin, allowing for a symmetrical smile to be achieved. Lumineers, which are a particular make of veneers, provide different shades, shapes, durability and sizes to appeal to you as the customer so they are natural for your unique teeth.

You will be able to choose the shade that you would like your veneer to be created as so that it is a perfect match to the surrounding teeth. They are then sculpted using advanced medical grade materials such as white composite and porcelain. Just like fake nails, a glue-like binding agent is used to adhere the veneers to the affected teeth. Often before the procedure is carried out, the dentist will provide you with images of previous patients so you can visual the end result and make a decision on whether or not the treatment is right for you.

The general aim of veneer treatment is cosmetic, however in some cases where orthodontic treatment is deemed inappropriate, veneers may be used to provide correct teeth alignment and fill any troublesome gaps between teeth.

Veneers have proven very popular amongst celebrities to improve tooth colour and symmetry, to enhancing an individual's smile. Now this revolutionary dental solution is becoming more and more common in dental clinics up and down the UK. Therefore, if you have any self-confidence issue surrounding your teeth and their appearance, you don't have to live with it any longer.
