Veneers can improve the shape, colour and position of your teeth by using a thin layer of Porcelain made to fit over the front surface of the tooth. A precise shape of porcelain can be chosen to lighten the upper front teeth or to reshape them, and can often be used to close small gaps when braces may not be viable or practical. Veneers are attached directly to your existing tooth structure, not dissimilar to a false fingernail, with minimal amount of the original tooth structure removed.
