Veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin laminates or shells of tooth-coloured material (porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material) that are cemented to the front surface of the teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance.

Perhaps no single dental procedure provides as many aesthetic benefits as veneers, performed by our dentists at York Lanes Dental. Porcelain veneers can hide chips, cracks, and stains. They can fill in gaps and change the size or shape of the teeth. What’s more, veneers can be matched to your natural tooth colors, leaving you with an absolutely beautiful new smile.
