VENEERS & SMILE DESIGNING

Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover thefront surface of teeth,changing their color, shape, size, or length, hence improving the appearance of the patient

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)
