What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells, designed for covering the front surface of natural teeth. These shells improve the color, shape, size and position of the teeth to correct irregularities and create an attractive smile.

Placing ceramic veneers takes approximately 5 to 7 days. Before starting the procedure, it is necessary to make an initial free examination so that the dentist can determine whether you are a candidate for veneers and whether additional preparations of your gums or teeth are necessary before the start of the procedure.

Who needs veneers?

  • Patients who want perfectly straight and white teeth, that is, a real "Hollywood" smile
  • Patients who want to correct irregularities in the shape and color of their teeth

The procedure of preparing teeth for veneers is painless and is performed under local anesthesia.

Veneers are not something you can simply buy and make on the fly. They are made to measure, just for you and your smile, in order to suit your needs and desires for a long time.


Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between dental veneers and crowns?

Although both veneers and crowns restore the function and improve appearance of your teeth, the main difference is that veneers cover only the front part of your tooth, while crowns cover the entire tooth. If your tooth is already severely worn down, a dental crown is probably the best option for you.

If your tooth is completely intact and you just want to beautify your smile, dental veneers might be the best option. First of all, the dentist will give you the best advice on when dental veneers can be placed and when it is necessary to grind teeth for crowns. If there are minor fractures, a change in the color or position of the teeth, dental veneers are the best choice. They most faithfully imitate the natural color and appearance of the teeth and are the pinnacle of modern aesthetic dentistry.

Dental veneers are used when you want to improve your smile and correct irregularities such as crooked or chipped teeth. Most often, they are used and placed on the front teeth.

How much of a natural tooth needs to be ground to place a veneer?

It depends on the individual case. In most cases, minimal grinding (0.5 mm) is necessary to place the veneer.

What is the warranty on dental veneers?

Most often, the warranty of renowned veneer manufacturers is 5 years. However, their actual durability largely depends on the patient's oral hygiene and lifestyle.

What are the greatest advantages of ceramic veneers?

The greatest advantages of veneers are that they do not require extensive grinding of healthy tooth structure. Also, ceramics are highly resistant to pigmentation or staining, and the aesthetics are excellent. However, you should not use them to bite hard food such as nuts.

We use veneers when it is necessary to change the color or imperfection in the shape of the teeth.”
