With Veneers you can dramatically or subtly transform the appearance of your smile.
A Veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front of a tooth. It can be compared to how a false fingernail, fits over your nail to improve its strength and appearance.
At Broxbourne Dental Care we use Veneers to easily and dramatically enhance the shape, length, size and colour of a tooth. They are also an excellent option for treating chipped, discoloured or misshaped teeth, especially in front teeth.
Veneers fall into the category of Cosmetic Dentistry because they create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. Even better, the translucent ceramic quality of today’s Veneers provide a more natural look than what’s been available in the past. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, Veneers can also serve a functional purpose by protecting the surface of a damaged tooth.
In some cases, Veneers may replace the need for a dental Crown, eliminating the need for more invasive tooth preparation. Veneers are often considered a more conservative alternative to Crowns while being a stronger, longer lasting alternative to bonding.
Once placed, the Veneers are very strong and will resist most of the forces placed upon them by a normal diet.
