Not everyone is happy with the appearance of their teeth. A tooth may be chipped, discoloured, slightly crooked or you may have gaps between your front teeth - making you self conscious. If Orthodontic work is not possible or desired, Brixham Dental Practice could help you by fitting a dental veneer.

Dental veneers

A dental veneer is a thin layer of tooth coloured material, usually porcelain, which your dentist fits to the damaged or discoloured tooth. Once it has been fitted, it will look as natural as your own teeth.

Fitting a veneer is an easy procedure – your smile can be enhanced within just two visits to our experienced dentists.

While veneers can give a quick result and the appearance of a perfect smile, they do require an amount of preparation of the tooth. Some of the tooth has to be taken away before the veneers are placed, therefore the technique is not reversible. The veneers will also require replacement in the future (they usually last around 10 – 15 years).
