Porcelain veneers are designed to mask flaws, fill gaps and add a healthy shine to your teeth. They are often used by cosmetic dentists for teeth that are stained, crooked or worn. Veneers improve tooth shape, position and colour and are custom-made to suit your mouth contours. They improve the aesthetics of your smile and protect surfaces which have been damaged for added strength and protection.
