Veneers are very thin, tooth colored ceramic restorations, bonded to the surface of the existing tooth in order to improve smile esthetics. They are typically placed as pairs and restricted to areas visible when one smiles, like the front of the mouth.
Veneers require minimal tooth preparation and are fabricated in the laboratory.
Benefits of veneer placement:
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Fixing slightly rotated or angled teeth
- Improving smile design
- Obtaining a lighter front teeth shade
