Porcelain Tooth Veneers, Edinburgh

Veneers are thin slices of Porcelain. These are precisely made to fit over the visible surface of front teeth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail (but much thinner). Veneers are an ideal way to treat discoloured or unsightly teeth, close gaps between front teeth, or repair chips and cracks.

Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, because they are thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super glue). Very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Veneers can last for many years.

There’s no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature’s mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile. This is widely used among the stars to get a Hollywood smile.

Veneers are thin, custom made shells crafted of tooth coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They’re made by a dental technician, usually in a dental lab, working from a model provided by your dentist.
