A veneer is a very thin covering that is placed on the outside of a tooth to make it look better.
With time teeth can become stained or discoloured and a veneer is a conservative way of making teeth look attractive again.
Veneers are made out of acrylic and porcelain.
Bleaching & Whitening
Another method of making darker teeth lighter in colour is to have them bleached or whitened.
The quickest and most controlled way of doing this is in the surgery via a special bleaching light.
Another effective bleaching method is to use specially fitted, fine, mouthguard like trays at home with a special bleaching agent inside them.
If you feel you may be interested in bleaching your teeth, the dentist and hygienist will see if your mouth is suitable and then discuss the treatment with you.
