About dental veneers

Veneers are a type of microprosthesis that is a very thin white onlays. Unlike the crown, which covers the entire tooth, the installation of veneers is carried out on the front part and on the cutting surface of the tooth only.

Types of veneers

Veneers are differed among themselves in the material from which they are fabricated. Ceramics and composite materials used most commonly.

  • Porcelain veneers are as close as possible in color, shape and appearance to natural teeth.
  • The veneers of zirconium dioxide have even greater strength, are not inferior in aesthetic qualities and are reliable, but at the same time are more expensive
  • Veneers made of composite filling material are far below to ceramics in aesthetic qualities, not so strong and durable, but cheaper
  • There are also gold onlays (they can be made of other precious metals), but they are rather an ornament than a way to solve certain problems, therefore they are used very rarely.

  • Veneer color selection.

  • Cast dental models.
  • Installation of temporary veneers is possible until permanent ones are ready.
  • Manufacturing of permanent veneers in the laboratory using a specific method, depending on the material chosen.
  • Fitting and final fixing.
If the size, shape or color of the prosthesis does not suit the patient during the fitting, it may be sent to the laboratory for revision.
