A veneer is a thin layer of either porcelain or composite material that is made to fit over the front surface of a tooth.
Dental veneers are one of the most popular treatments used today, this is because they can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. For example you could use dental veneers to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten your front teeth, a dental veneer can also make a chipped tooth look whole again or you can use dental veneers to close a small gap when braces are not suitable.
The benefits of dental veneers
The main benefit of veneers is that they make your teeth look natural and healthy. The fact that they can change the shape of your teeth makes these enhancements an ideal solution for patients in Glasgow who have proportionately small, worn, irregularly shaped or pointed teeth.
In order to prepare you for a dental veneer the outer enamel surface of your tooth may be removed, this will make sure that your veneer can be bonded permanently in place. The amount of enamel removed is small, however, it will generally be the same as the thickness of the veneer that is to be fitted; this is so that your tooth will stay the same size.
A local anaesthetic injection can be used to make sure that there is no discomfort, however, this isn’t needed the majority of the time. After we have prepared your tooth we will take an impression of your tooth, this impression will then be given to a lab where the veneer will be made up. The colour of your surrounding teeth will also be matched on a shade guide so that we can make sure that your dental veneers will look completely natural.
