A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, in the same way that a false fingernail fits over a nail.
What are the advantages of veneers?
Veneers improve the appearance of teeth, making them look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) less preparation of the tooth is needed, compared with a crown.
When would I need a veneer?
Veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. So you might have a veneer to improve the colour of a single discoloured or stained tooth. Or you might want to improve the appearance of several teeth which are crooked, uneven, or have discoloured fillings.
