What are veneers?
Dental veneers - Complete Smile Makeovers
A veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain, ceramic or composite made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. They are one of the most versatile restorations available for enhancing your smile and can be used to lighten discoloured teeth, ‘straighten’ teeth and to close spaces between front teeth.
Because veneers are very thin, very little preparation of the tooth is needed.
The first veneers fitted in Colm Smith Dental was back in 1988! The female patient had dark stained teeth as a result of taking antibiotics as a child. The result was so good, that it inspired the patient to study dentistry and she herself is now a very successful dentist.
