Veneers provide sameness, naturalness and whiteness of the teeth without major interventions on the natural tooth. A veneer is a very thin substitute, which is attached to the existing tooth and provides strength and resilience comparable to the natural tooth enamel. With them, slight orthodontic shifts, chipped or fractured teeth, discoloration, wear and tear and gaps between the teeth can be restored. The materials from which they are made are ceramics or composites.
They can have a thickness of about 0.3 to 1.5 mm, which requires the preparation of the tooth enamel in the same amount. If the structure of the tooth and the space for the future veneer allow it, it is also possible to make a non-prep veneer, which means that the natural tooth is not drilled. The life span of a veneer mostly depends most on the condition of the natural tooth and regular checkups. The veneer preparation procedure itself is completely painless and the anesthesia is given depending on the sensitivity and wishes of the patient.
Smile design goes beyond aesthetic beautification of the tooth, because it also affects the mental state of the person. A nice smile improves the mood, the confidence and quality of life!
