Dental veneers are used to restore or improve the appearence and structure of natural teeth.
WHAT ARE DENTAL VENEERS?
What are dental veneers – porcelain veneers.
Porcelain dental veneers are very thin sheets of porcelain, 1.0 mm thick, made to measure for each tooth, in a mineral material, that cover the front surface of the teeth.
The color of the teeth can be lightened to improve their appearance.
Porcelain dental veneers adhere to the front of the teeth that have been previously prepared, and in this way their color, shape, size or length can be changed, thus making a smile design to give an appearance of renewal and rejuvenation of teeth.
Dental veneers can be made of porcelain or a cosmetic composite that is a composite that is moldable in the mouth.
Porcelain veneers resist staining better than resin veneers and better mimic the properties of natural teeth in light for a more natural appearance, as well as better resist wear.
Dental veneers are very thin and require less preparation of the tooth surface prior to placement.
As specialists in cosmetic dentist and oral rehabilitation, we always strive to make the best decision regarding the available options by discussing it with the patient, so that the chosen alternative is always well understood and approved by him, who after all will wear dental veneers for years.
