What are Veneers?
Veneers are a porcelain or composite material which is placed in front of your existing teeth to provide you with a clean-cut, tailor made tooth.

Many people opt for this surgery in order to instantly fix their smile.
Why Do I Need Them?
There are many pros and cons of having veneers and most people decide on having them after they have tried other corrective methods and want to fix their smile once and for all. Aside from the instant transformation, veneers are also impossible to stain which means that you will have a perfectly white smile for life. The other benefit of veneers is that your dentist will shape them around your mouth so that they look perfectly natural.
Is It A Good Idea?
This depends very much on what you are after, for many people they do not like the idea of having their existing teeth shaved down and after placing veneers there is no way back. Veneers may break or chip over the years and they can be replaced with ease.
