Dental veneers (porcelain or composite) have long been used to create the ultimate smile makeover. With dental veneer treatment, it’s possible to transform crooked, stained, damaged or badly worn teeth into a brand new, straight, white smile, as seen on many of the Hollywood celebrities.
If you are unhappy with the shape, position or colour of your teeth, then dental veneers may be the solution for you. Veneers are a good treatment option to consider because they look like natural teeth and don’t require a major procedure.
A veneer is a very thin, tooth - coloured piece of porcelain (like a false finger nail) that is bonded on top of your own tooth. Based on your needs , Navan Dental 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, known as a smile makeover. Porcelain veneers, on average, last approximately 10 years.

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.
It is also possible to provide veneers using white filling material (composite veneer). This is a fantastic technique as it provides a very aesthetic result in one visit. As no laboratory treatment is required, the result is quicker and cheaper. This, however, does not give as long lasting a result, when compared to porcelain veneers.
