Porcelain Veneers

What are they?

A porcelain veneer is a very thin facing of porcelain that can be applied over damaged, discoloured, or misaligned teeth. Unlike a composite veneer the porcelain veneer is generally constructed off the premises by a laboratory technician. The lab constructs the veneer by working of a highly accurate impression of the prepared tooth.

As there is no dark metal substructure our skilled technicians can confidently reproduce the natural layers of our teeth with porcelains of different shades.
