Veneers are made of thin porcelain layers, glued to the frontal tooth surface. Their thickness varies between 0.5 to 0.75mm. The lifespan of veneers is many years, usually between 13-15 years. Veneers can help achieve a desirable shape and colour of a tooth.
Veneers are made of extremely durable, semi-translucent porcelain mimicking the look and feel of the natural enamel. Veneers are not prone to decay and are stain resistant, ensuring your new smile will stay invariably white for years.
ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR DETAL VENEERS?
Veneers are an ideal solution for people who have discoloured teeth not responding to bleaching.
Veneers may also be used to restore a partially lost tooth.
They may help alter a tooth shape, for example to extend the length of teeth.
They allow successful concealing of:
- cervical cavities,
- dents and cracks in the enamel,
- trauma-induced fractures of the incise edges,
- unsightly fillings on frontal surfaces of the front teeth,
- gaps between teeth,
- enamel hypoplasia,
- discolorations resulting from e.g. antibiotics, which cannot be removed with whitening or bleaching.
