At Balham Lodge Dental Practice, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to give our patients beautiful new smiles. If your teeth are stained, chipped, or not properly aligned, veneers are a good treatment option to consider because they look like natural teeth and don’t require a major procedure to have them placed.
A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false fingernail) that is bonded on top of your own tooth. Based on your needs, we can adjust the shape of your veneers to make your teeth overall look longer and or closer together. You can have just one veneer or a whole set, also known as a smile makeover.
For a single stained tooth, we can also match the precise shade of porcelain to give it a lighter appearance and fit in with the surrounding teeth. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps when braces are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
We look forward to looking after your smile!
