A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is made to fit over the front surface of the tooth, similar to the way a false nail fits over a nail.

Veneers can help to improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. By selecting the desired shade, it is possible to improve the appearance of a discoloured tooth or light all of your smile visible teeth. A veneer can also help to make a chipped tooth look whole or close small gaps between teeth where a brace would not be suitable.


It is that time of year again, the first bulbs are just starting to appear and spring is definitely in the air. Now is the time when we look to spring clean our houses, getting rid of the old to make way for the new.

The same theory can be applied to your oral health. It is very easy to slip into bad habits, which can overtime cause damage to your teeth and gums. So here at Valley Dental Practice we have a 5-point plan to get your smile spring ready.
