Tooth veneers are thin layers of either composite resin or porcelain that are laminated onto the natural teeth rejuvenating the smile and creating a smile of strong, white natural looking teeth. Veneers have perfected the smiles of many actors, T.V. personalities and models.
Over the last 20 years porcelain veneers have been the most popular . Whilst they are an extremely valuable treatment tool for improving smiles it should be noted that usually some permanent alteration of the natural teeth needs to be made for their construction. This is irreversible. Porcelain veneers are made by specialist porcelain technicians and therefore the cost can be considerable.
More recently Dr Osborne has undergone many training sessions with world-class educators in composite veneers. Usually these require little or no preparation of the natural tooth. Usually they can be completed in less than half a day . They are easy to repair and to change if the patient so wishes.
