Over the last few years, cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly popular due to advancements in technology and accessibility of treatment which was previously very costly and mostly a specialised field.
Aesthetic Dentistry is responsible for the aesthetic restoration of teeth that have changes in shape or color, creating or restoring a natural and harmonious appearance.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Different types of veneers:
Porcelain veneers are made in a laboratory and cemented onto the tooth surface.
Composite veneers are manufactured right on the premises by the dentist, and applied directly to the teeth.
Veneers are routinely used to fix:
Teeth that are discolored
Teeth that are worn down
Teeth that are chipped or broken
Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
Teeth with gaps between them
