Porcelain veneers are used to correct any light damage, cover up discolouration or to just improve the overall appearance of your teeth. Veneers are a thin, tooth-coloured shell that is designed to fit over the front of a tooth. They can also be used to fill in gaps between teeth.
Only a small amount of enamel needs to be removed so the veneer can fit nicely in the mouth, if any.
Although veneers are resilient, it is important to treat them with care. Avoid biting nails or chew pen tops, or use your teeth to open anything. Also, it is probably best to steer clear of very hard foods that could cause damage to the veneer. To give your veneer the best chance of lasting a long time, keep up a regular routine and brushing and flossing.
