With this treatment, it's possible to transform crooked, stained, damaged or badly worn teeth into a brand new, straight, white smile, as seen on many of the Hollywood greats. Veneers are wafer-thin lamintates or shells of tooth-coloured material which can be either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material. Many dentists use the analogy that dental veneers are for your teeth what false fingernails are for your hands. Stained teeth - badly stained teeth that cannot be improved by teeth whitening or prophyflex treatments can be greatly improved by dental veneers, which function to cover any existing stains on your teeth. Damaged teeth - teeth that have become badly worn through excessive grinding or by carbonated drinks, as well as those that have been chipped or broken, can benefit from veneers.
