They are made of either thin plastic resin or porcelain and can be placed to:
- correct poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth
- close gaps between teeth
- mask internal stains
- restore partially broken-down teeth
Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth structure with tooth-coloured resin cement. The treatment can be completed in one session.
Patients should be aware that this is usually an irreversible process because it’s often necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.
