Veneers are a thin semi-translucent "shells" of medical grade ceramic that is permanently bonded to your teeth. Veneers are known to be extremely strong and wear resistant. Veneers can help achieve a pleasant natural look with little or no discomfort. The veneer procedure involves removing a very small amount of tooth structure and placing these thin shells over to cover the tooth - much like putting on false fingernails. A common pre-requisite or requirement for porcelain veneers is the need for your gums to be healthy, as this facilitates the dentist to obtain an accurate fit for the veneer at the gum line. Porcelain veneers can significantly improve the appearance and colour of discoloured or chipped teeth..
