A ceramic veneer is a thin layer of aesthetic ceramic which is made to cover the front surface of the tooth.
A ceramic veneer can change the shape, colour, alignment or appearance of an existing tooth in a similar manner to which a false fingernail does with a natural nail.
Ceramic veneers are thin and generally held in position by a special bond. Thus preparation required for teeth when fitting porcelain veneers is considerably minimal. Typically a very thin amount of the enamel surface of the tooth is removed and an impression taken to enable the ceramist to construct the veneers. The key is to properly match the porcelain veneer with the rest of the teeth to ensure the veneer covered tooth appears natural in comparison to the other teeth.
Ceramic Veneers are an instant rejuvenation for the cosmetic appearance of our teeth. Ceramic Veneers provide a new front surface for teeth and can improve the colour, shape, surface, position and length of your teeth. Veneers can be used individually on only one tooth, or can be used to enhance an entire smile.
