Porcelain Veneers at Ambience Dental Practice in Swindon

Veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments provided. A veneer is a thin layer of tooth-coloured material such as composite or procelain and can improve the shape, colour or alignment of the teeth. They can also be used as a protective cover for damaged teeth.

There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a qualified dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.

Veneers can greatly improve your appearance and you lose very little of the natural tooth surface.If the tooth is strong, a veneer is often a better option than a crown.
