As a result of programmes like "Extreme Makeover", this is becoming an ever popular choice for improving the overall appearance of your smile.
Teeth are minimally prepared and impressions are taken of your mouth. These are sent to a well respected private laboratory and thin porcelain facings are made to the exact fit of your teeth.
At the second appointment these are cemented onto your teeth and the results can be appreciated instantly. Veneers can be used to repair a single cracked tooth or one that has become discoloured as a result of trauma. They are also beneficial in aligning rotated or crooked teeth.
Some patients choose to enhance their whole smile by having a full set of veneers placed, and this route should be carefully discussed and planned with your dentist.
