The Gentle Dental Practice, East Molesey
Dental Veneers are are a way of improving the front surface of teeth without destroying a lot of tooth tissue just as we might need to when preparing a crown. They are part of the area in dentistry we refer to a Minimal Intervention Dentistry.
Usually made from porcelain, these very thin pieces that are custom made, are bonded on to the front surface of the teeth to give a totally natural appearance. A single tooth can be veneered right through to a combination of several teeth.
It is important to consider a tooth whitening treatment too as tooth whitening cannot change the colour of ceramic so once fitted cannot be lightened. We prefer to lighten teeth prior to preparation for veneers.
