Over the last few years, aesthetics dentistry has become increasingly popular mainly due to the advancements in technology and also the treatment's accessibility in terms of cost.
Aesthetic Dentistry is responsible for the aesthetic restoration of teeth that results in changes of 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. In some cases, they can even substitute orthodontics' treatments, if the problem is only about aesthetics.
Types of veneers:
Porcelain veneers are made in a laboratory and cemented/glued onto the tooth surface.
Composite veneers are manufactured right on the premises by the dentist, and applied directly in 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
