Veneers are microprostheses, thin ceramic plates (0.3-0.7 mm thick), which are fixed on the frontal side of the teeth, used to correct the shape, position, and protect teeth from decay.
A well-done work, which can be safely called an artistic restoration, allows you to make your smile perfect with the help of these thinnest linings. Thanks to innovative materials, it is possible to make veneers with a texture like real teeth, and their strength characteristics are not worse than those of tooth enamel. Thanks to this, restored teeth are almost indistinguishable from natural ones.
The installation of veneers is indicated in the following cases:
Veneers are superimposed on the frontal teeth, which makes them snow-white, eliminates the unevenness of the dentition, gaps, cracks. Due to the high light transmittance of the material, the teeth look as natural as possible. Veneers can be placed on all teeth (including molars), but most often it is done in the smile zone – 10 teeth in the upper jaw and 10 teeth in the lower jaw.
The classification of veneers is based on the materials of manufacture. The highest quality microprostheses, according to most dentists, are made of ceramics. Ceramic veneers can be porcelain or zirconia. Direct composite veneers are an alternative.
Let’s consider in more detail the advantages and disadvantages of veneers made of various materials:
The installation of veneers is performed only on healthy teeth, so the first stage is an examination by a dentist, treatment of caries and gum disease. If there are large fillings that will be covered with veneers, it is recommended to replace the restorative material.
Preparation for installing veneers consists in removing the top layer of enamel (grinding, turning), along with which tartar and cracks are removed. The procedure is performed under anesthesia and is therefore completely painless. To prevent the development of various violations, a complete reorganization is carried out. Usually about 0.3-0.7 mm of dental tissue is removed, after which the doctor takes an impression to make veneers. Temporary onlays are usually installed on the ground teeth.
At the final stage, the onlays are fixed on the teeth. For this, special cement pastes with different shades are used, which allows you to choose the one that best suits the natural color of your teeth.
If your goal, the notorious “Hollywood” smile, or your teeth have some defects in the form of small chips, cracks, or simply changed color – dental veneers will help you quickly and with the expected result correct any violation. They can be installed on one tooth or group. Let it be only 1-2 front teeth – even a specialist will not be able to distinguish them from your natural teeth!
