What do veneers represent?

Veneers are the most friendly and aesthetic way to improve the look of your smile. They are thin scales with a thickness of 0.3-0.6 mm, which are bonded to the front of the tooth.

Dental veneers are orthopedic constructions aimed to improve the appearance of the dentition. They represent crowns that cover a small part of the tooth.

They are placed on the frontal surface of the front teeth, and for this to happen, a small part of the vestibular (front visible) surface of the teeth is filed. The filing is within 1.5mm to a maximum of 2 mm.

They are bound to the tooth to change its shape, color, size, or even length. And while that might sound painful, they are actually very thin and can be tailored to your own bite and teeth to ensure that they are comfortable. 

Moreover, they will give your teeth the natural look that you definitely want to be noticed. It is important to mention that periodontal tissue tolerates porcelain veneers easily, as well another advantage of porcelain is that it is almost completely stain resistant.

It also should be noted that the coating changes the way your teeth look but, at the same time, does not affect the teeth themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions

We decided to answer some frequently asked questions related to the procedure: placement of veneers asked by our patients.

Dental veneers are well known in cosmetic dentistry. A thin veneer, usually porcelain, covering the front of the teeth is used for chipped, discolored, damaged or misaligned teeth. Veneers are the choice of many patients who dream of a beautiful smile for a long time to come.

The cosmetic procedure for placing this type of veneers consists in bonding thin press-ceramic flakes on the teeth, with the help of which their appearance and shape are changed. This is the so-called "ceramic without metal", and the material used can reach a thickness of 0.3 mm. Pressed ceramics are extremely suitable to be placed on the front teeth.

Usually, aesthetic dentists recommend their patients to have placed veneers after reaching a certain age. This is because during growth, the position of the gum and the tooth changes, which in turn creates a gap between the veneers and the gums. It is extremely important that you follow your body's normal growth cycle and consult with your dentist about the options that dentistry offers.

A curious fact is that in women the growth of the jaws ends around the age of 17, and in men after the age of 20!

When properly cared for, porcelain veneers can maintain their flawless appearance for between 12 and 25 years, three times longer than composite veneers. Porcelain veneers do not change color over time, which does not necessitate their replacement.

Composite veneers, on the other hand, last between 4 and 8 years, but with proper hygienic care and maintenance, their strength is greater, which means you can enjoy a beautiful smile for longer.

Remember that composite veneers are more prone to breakage and damage, so the care you take for them is more specific according to the instructions given by your dentist.

Veneers cannot damage or destroy your real teeth, on the contrary, they can only help to make them look better. The function of veneers is to strengthen and restore your teeth, and the materials from which they are made are gentle and do not negatively affect the enamel or other tooth structures.
