Dental veneers are a safe and quick fix for teeth that have seen better days. They are used to fill in gaps between teeth and treat broken, chipped, misshapen, crooked, stained or discoloured teeth.
The procedure is quite simple. First we make models of your existing teeth in plaster and then add tooth coloured wax to the model to trial new tooth shapes. By taking an impression of this model, we are able to quickly mock up how your new teeth will look in your mouth by using quick-setting tooth coloured plastic. Once you've had a look and you're happy with the design, the plastic is simply peeled off. At this point you should have a clear idea of how much (if any) shaping of your existing teeth will be required to achieve this new smile.
