Dental Veneers

When an aesthetic dental defect exists, such as gaps between teeth, broken teeth, faulty reconstructions, discolored teeth (following a root canal), teeth stained due to medication or when the patient just wants to change tooth form, the tooth can either be rebuilt or faced with a veneer:
A.Bonding – A composite restoration that is bonded to the tooth without harming it. Bonding is a simple, esthetic and affordable solution.
B.Laminate (Veneer) – When there is need of complete coverage of the tooth the solution is usually a porcelain veneer, although composite ones can be used as well. Sometimes there is need of tooth preparation to make room for the laminate, although not often. The laminate is fabricated by the laboratory as a thin blade that is then cemented to the tooth.
