Laminate Veneers are wafer-thin laminates or shells of tooth-coloured material (which can be either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material). They are “cemented” to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance. Many dentists use the analogy that dental laminate Veneers are for your teeth.
what false fingernails are for your hands. Dental Veneers have long been used to create the ultimate smile makeover. 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.
Please Note: Laminate Veneers are not suitable in every situation. If you have slightly crooked teeth we are not able to apply Laminate Veneers to make them straight as the material is very thin (in these cases a Crown/ Full Veneer is more suitable). There are also some other limitations with the treatment such as the size of the gaps between teeth that can be closed. If you are unsure if you are a candidate for Laminate Veneers please contact u. We will send you details of how to send us your dental photographs for the Cosmetic Dentist to review and confirm your suitability.
