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 from Dulwich Dental Office 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. Our dental veneer treatments are available in Dulwich, Brixton, Crystal Palace, Camberwell, Herne Hill, Honor Oak, Orpington, Peckham, Streatham, Upper Sydenham and across South London.
