A veneer is a layer of porcelain or composite resin placed over a tooth to improve aesthetics or to protect the tooth’s surface. There are two types of veneers; a full veneer crown which will cover all five surfaces of the tooth or a laminate veneer which is a thin layer that covers only the surface of the tooth.
A porcelain veneer can be fabricated by a lab and then later bonded to the tooth using a cement. A composite veneer may be directly placed on the tooth or indirectly fabricated and then bonded to the tooth.
At Lifestyle Dentistry we can customize the shape and colour of your veneer to best suit you. We can straighten malpositioned teeth that appear crooked, fill in spaces between teeth caused by gum recession or malpositioned teeth, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear or whiten teeth that have been discoloured for various reasons.
At Lifestyle Dentistry we can give you the confidence to smile!
