Do you want a smile makeover solution that can be effective in a relatively short time? One of the least invasive methods of dental restoration that can transform your smile is a procedure known as porcelain veneers.
Dental veneers are thin shells of laminates shaped and moulded exactly to cover your teeth as a quick way to improve their shape or colour. While concealing all and any of your dental imperfections, they also provide an external shield to protect the surface of your underlying teeth.

Dental veneers can be made from composite material, ceramic (porcelain) or zirconium. Among the materials, the porcelain restorations stand out for durability and ability to mimic natural translucency with uncanny likeness. These smooth and impenetrable veneers will help your teeth to appear the way you want them.
Indeed, what has helped many celebrities to attain that picture-perfect smile is today available to you through the capable and experienced hands of cosmetic dentists.

What are dental veneers recommended for?
For the most part, dental veneers are recommended to cover up any dental imperfections of flaws that you may have. Even if you maintain your teeth and gums in tip top condition, they may not look exactly the way you want them to. Dental veneers present a great solution to present your smile in an aesthetic way, but they are not used to treat dental problems such as decay or gum disease.
As a cosmetic procedure, they are recommended for:
- Covering up broken or cracked tooth;
- Hiding unsightly fillings;
- Hiding stained or discoloured teeth – especially discolorations that cannot be removed using conventional methods like brushing/flossing or teeth whitening;
- Covering misaligned or mispositioned teeth or teeth that are too big or too small teeth;
- Covering crowded or unevenly spaced teeth; and
- Improving gummy smiles
Dental veneers are recommended to cover up any dental imperfections or flaws that you may have such as unsightly fillings.
NOTE: Porcelain veneers are applied as a purely cosmetic treatment. If your teeth have any serious underlying dental problems or diseases, your dentist would first address these issues before applying the veneers.
