Dental veneers are thin sheets of ceramic bonded to teeth that help to improve their appearance. Produced to fit perfectly to discolored or chipped teeth, veneers have optimum properties of light reflection and an identical appearance to natural teeth. After bonding, veneers will adapt perfectly to the tooth, giving it the strength required for a normal daily life.
Veneers are indicated when teeth show significant discoloration or several previous restorations. Its main advantage is to allow excellent esthetics in a conservative form, because tooth preparation for placement of a veneer is reduced.
With an aesthetic purpose, veneers allow not only for a more harmonious smile, but also the correction of size, shape or tooth position.
