Veneers are thin porcelain facings that attach to the front of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth, and may solve many minor aesthetic problems by modifying the shape and color of teeth. Veneers are used to correct worn, chipped, misaligned, stained or otherwise discolored teeth.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, translucent ceramic shells that are placed over the tooth and applied with a special glue. Veneers are predominantly used on the frontal teeth. With the help of veneers aesthetic flaws such as simple tooth misalignments, tooth gaps, unsatisfactory tooth coloration and local discolorations can all be corrected. With veneers, visible tooth surfaces receive an optimized look and even the tooth color is individually corrected through this method.
