Aesthetic aspects of modern dentistry have won themselves an important place in recent years. Previously, the main focus of dental activity lay in the reconstruction of defects. Today, this and the striving to a perfect appearance dominate. Suitable fillings made from plastic and ceramics as well as ceramic crowns and veneers are the various applications used in dental coloring.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, nearly transparent ceramic bowls. The tooth in need of a veneer is sanded 0.7 mm on the exterior surface and approx. 1 mm on the edges. In special cases there are exceptional ceramics which do not require a sanding of the tooth if correctly indicated. These ceramics distinguish themselves by a layer thickness of approx. 0.3 mm.

Where can veneers be used concerning aesthetic improvement?

  • unsightly tooth structures or darkened tooth color
  • front teeth with many fillings of different coloring
  • damage of the front teeth as a result of accidents
  • small dispositions of the front teeth without additional jaw-orthopedic therapy

Advantages of veneers

The largest part of the tooth substance is spared, because the veneers are individually formed by the dental technician and stuck on the prepared tooth surfaces with special adhesives. Veneers show no edges in the gums, the crossing to the natural tooth is invisible. This way a flawless aesthetic result is achieved. The functional efficiency of a tooth with veneer resembles that of a healthy tooth - it is completely resilient.
