Veneers - ceramic shells for a perfect appearance
Veneers are ultra-thin transparent ceramic shells that are bonded to the tooth surface. They appear totally natural and real. So real, that in many cases not even dentists can distinguish them from natural tooth substance without a closer examination. An American dentist, who wanted to give movie stars a radiant smile during shootings, invented the technique many years ago.
Because of the rapid progress in the field of ceramics, esthetic dentistry can no longer be imagined without them. Apart from providing a radiant appearance, they also have other advantages to offer. Veneers are very stable and because of their robustness they are practically impossible to discolor or chip.
Veneers are extremely tissue-compatible, last longer and look better than a crown. While a large portion of the tooth must be sacrificed for the crown, only a very thin layer of the tooth surface is taken off for the veneers. Usually malposition of teeth can be successfully corrected as well. Consult our staff if you are due to have a crown fitted, or if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth.
