Veneers provide a quick and effective way of hiding cracked, stained or misshaped teeth. They most often consist of a thin layer or porcelain specially made to match our existing teeth. This is then bonded to the front surface of the tooth.
Once you and the dentist have agreed a treatment plan for your veneer, your tooth will need to be prepared. This sometimes requires the dentist to shave a thin amount of enamel from the front surface of the tooth.
The average life of a veneer is 7 to 10 years before it needs to be replaced
