What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin ceramic layers, which are attached to the tooth surface with a special dental glue. The goal is to conceal discolorations, tooth gaps, fissures or loss of tooth substance at the front tooth region. The material is translucent, tooth colored and ensures an almost perfect fit. Furthermore it is highly biologically compatible.
Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials.
How do we apply veneers to the teeth?
To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed, usually less than a millimeter. This is essential as it creates room for the veneer to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth. Through an impression of the pretreated tooth we create a model of the actual tooth situation. Based on this information the dental technician prepares the individual veneers.
This method ensures maximum precision and an individual customization.After the try-in the veneer will be fixed to the tooth by using a special adhesive technology.
