Once your teeth and gums are healthy, you may want to consider cosmetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers and crowns, to transform and perfect your smile.
A useful way to understand a porcelain veneer is to compare it to a 'false nail' for a tooth. Veneers can eliminate twists in the tooth, and when used on groups of teeth, they can dramatically improve smiles. Dental veneers are wafer-thin masks of porcelain to hide discoloured patches on the teeth and can also be used to close unsightly gaps, with minimal work on the tooth itself.
Apart from the enhanced visual appeal, these thin porcelain laminates also add strength and resilience to your natural teeth. The shells protect the teeth from stains and eliminate the need for extensive dental treatments.
Unlike dental crown procedures, veneers do not require major changes in the shape of your teeth - you can retain most of your natural teeth to fit the porcelain shells. The shells are also individually sculpted to match the appropriate colour, length and shape of your natural teeth.
