VENEERS & SMILE DESIGNING
Direct Veneers – Composite resin veneers directly built-up in the mouth
Indirect Veneers – Porcelain veneers are indirectly fabricated in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth using a resin cement. They resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.
WHAT TYPES OF PROBLEMS DO DENTAL VENEERS FIX?
- Teeth that are discolored — either because of stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride, or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, havecraters or bulges in them)
- Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)
