A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain specially made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, improving its aesthetic appearance.

Veneers can help to correct many cosmetic dentistry issues, and dentists often recommend them as part of a Smile Makeover. Having a veneer fitted can correct the shape, colour, or position of a tooth.

Fitting a veneer typically takes place across two appointments. At the first appointment, your dentist will remove a tiny amount of enamel from the surface of the tooth, providing the ideal surface texture for the bonding process. They will then send an impression of your tooth to a lab to have your veneer made.

Your second visit to the dentist will be to fit the veneer, which they will cement into place with a special adhesive. Your veneers should last for many years with proper care.
