A veneer is a fine white surface that  is bonded onto your natural tooth. Veneers can improve your appearance and they involve very little preparation. Veneers can be used in cases where the teeth are chipped, discoloured or crowded and can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth as well as being used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (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.
