Veneers are thin ceramic shells that are attached to the natural teeth by the dentist with a special adhesive. Veneers can be used to correct slight tooth displacements and tooth gaps as well as nonoptimal tooth colours and shapes. Veneers improve the appearance of the visible surface of front teeth.
Veneers are mostly made of glass ceramics or feldspar ceramics, which are very similar to the natural tooth enamel in hardness and appearance. Although in most cases only a minimal part of the tooth substance is removed, applying veneers is a permanent change, which has been proven to be a valid solution over many years and is recognised as a dental treatment by numerous scientific societies in many countries. bestsmile Veneers kennenlernen
