A dental veneer is a thin piece of material(usually,porcelain,modified porcelain.composite or precious metal) bonded to the anterior surface of a tooth in order to change its structure and appearance. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, for example composite can be applied to a tooth in one single visit to the surgery, is very conservative meaning that very little or no tooth has to be removed and can easily be added to if a repair is required. Porcelain however in contrast requires usually two visits to the surgery, more tooth preparation and cannot be as easily repaired but the final result being generally longer lasting and having greater aesthetic appeal. In all areas of dentistry, especially aesthetic dentistry we want predictable results with a degree of longevity. Therefore we suggest that anyone wishing to improve and maintain the appearance of their smile should contact us for a consultation in order to make an informed decission as to what may be achieved.
