Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that reproduce the natural look and feel of your teeth. These custom-made shells are bonded to the front of the teeth to enhance their size, shape, or color.
Not only can veneers provide a dramatic improvement in spacing, discoloration, and chipping, but they’ve also been touted as dentistry’s answer to the facelift. By adding length or bulk where needed, your dentist can give your face the appearance of more supportive structures, which can smooth wrinkles and give you a more youthful look.
Da Vinci Veneers are thin shells of ceramic material bonded to the front teeth by a cosmetic dentist. These are designed to hide tooth discolorations, to whiten the smile, to address tooth chips, and to close minor tooth gaps. Da Vinici veneers claims to be resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, or cigarette smoking.
DURAthin Veneers are made of very thin porcelain and designed to adhere directly to the front of the teeth. Like traditional veneers, they can enhance the size, shape, and color of the teeth, but they don’t require any drilling or removal of enamel prior to placement.
Installing dental veneers can improve the aesthetic appearance of the teeth or restore a damaged tooth.
- Improving the shape of teeth which are too short, too small or too flat.
- Changing the alignment of the teeth when the defects are moderate and the patient does not wish to use orthodontics.
- Reducing a space between two spaced teeth (a gap in the front teeth).
- Strengthening a fragile tooth in case of wear to the thickness of the enamel.
- Correcting the appearance of an existing dental prosthesis without removing it.
For a perfect smile, the dentist will place an average of eight to ten veneers for the upper teeth.
