Veneers can give us the smile we have always dreamt about. They are becoming a more and more popular dental treatment. Veneers have become the flagship procedure within cosmetic dentistry. Having them done will completely transform your smile!
They are thin ceramic layers placed over frontal teeth to cover fillings and stains, reshape, enlarge or widen the teeth. Veneers are also used to reduce diastema, i.e. a visible gap between two teeth.
It is recommended to fix all the teeth which require treatment before proceeding to placing veneers. During the first visit teeth are slightly grinded and the dentist makes a dental impression i.e. dental cast. This impression serves as the model for veneers. Veneers are placed over teeth during the next visit: such a procedure can be performed in local anaesthesia.
For the best results we recommend placing six veneers: for incisors and canine teeth. Porcelain veneers are not suitable for patients with significant fillings in the tooth crown or dead teeth. Contraindications for this procedure include gum diseases such as paradontitis.
