Veneers are placed to mask discolourations, to brighten teeth and to improve a smile. They are ultra-thin shells of ceramic or a composite resin material. Veneers are bonded to the front of teeth and require little or no anesthesia. They can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth.

Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth's colour, size, or shape.

Veneers can mask undesirable defects such as stained teeth or damage due to an injury. They are ideal for masking discoloured fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider veneers. Generally, veneers will last for many years.
