Modernise your natural grin with the addition of porcelain or composite veneers. Using a very thin custom-made shell over the front of the tooth, veneers are designed to cover the natural tooth surface and boost the visual appearance. The veneer is crafted out of porcelain or composite resin materials which are cemented over the tooth after removing a layer of your natural enamel.
