Veneers are a cover over the natural tooth, they are an excellent method of improving the smile profile. A very thin shell of porcelain which looks extremely natural is placed over the front of the tooth. Veneers are a great way to cover up previously discoloured and unsightly teeth giving you the smile you always wanted.
Teeth can become discoloured for several reasons:
A tooth that has had trauma and requires a root canal treatment can “go dark”; A veneer is a great way to bring it back to its former glory.
Teeth that have intrinsic staining from; tetracyline treatment in childhood (dark coloured teeth); fluorosis (white spots on teeth) or just discoloured and mishaped naturally.
All of the above can be very effectively treated with veneers.
