When you would need a veneer
Should your tooth be chipped or be a touch discoloured, a veneer can work miracles. They’re also ideal to fill a gap between teeth.
How does it work?
Veneers are really shells that attach to the front of your tooth, and are shaped to fit perfectly. They would usually attach to strong and healthy teeth.
What Mathee Dental Studio will do for you
Should you require a porcelain veneer, we’ll remove a thin layer from the front of the tooth, to make space for the veneer. Impressions of the tooth are taken, sent to a dental technician for fabrications, and on another appointment the veneer is cemented to the front of the tooth. We’ll usually use porcelain veneers for chipped or uneven teeth, or if your teeth have become discoloured.
Should you require direct laminate veneers, we don’t usually need to remove any layer from the tooth. Instead we apply the layers of this veneer to the surface of your tooth. Then we polish the tooth to ensure it looks natural. These are easy to apply, but may not last as long as porcelain veneers.
