Veneers are an effective way of repairing chipped or uneven front teeth. It helps to improve the colour, shape and position of teeth.
The procedure involves fitting a thin layer of tooth-coloured porcelain over the front facing surface of the tooth. It has been likened to false nails being stuck on top of real nails.
Veneers would only be justified on the NHS if they were needed for oral health reasons. Cosmetic reasons would be classed as a private treatment.
