Straight and beautiful teeth with veneers
For cracks, gaps, misalignments – or just because of the aesthetics
Veneer is English and means “facade, veneer”. Veneers are used in most cases for aesthetic reasons: they can mask discoloration, large tooth gaps, short or small teeth, cracks and broken corners. But even misaligned teeth, which can not be corrected orthodontically, be corrected. Veneers are also used when a tooth has broken off due to an accident. In the best case, a single veneer can even replace a crown. Veneers, however, are best known for their large-scale application on the front teeth for aesthetic reasons.
How do veneers work??
Veneers are wafer-thin veneers made of ceramic, which are placed on the existing teeth and glued. Thus, the aforementioned flaws can be corrected. If a lighter shade is chosen for the ceramic bowl in comparison to the natural tooth color, whitening of the teeth can be achieved in the overall picture.

How does the treatment work?
A distinction is made between “noninvasive” veneers, which are only glued on, and “invasive” veneers. Here, the teeth are ground before sticking.
In the beginning, however, is the professional cleaning of the teeth. Coverings and tartar are removed. A thorough examination is made and, if necessary, caring for affected areas suffering from caries or defective fillings. Now, depending on whether it is the invasive or noninvasive procedure, the teeth are sanded. In the process, approx. 0.3 – 1 mm of tooth substance is removed. Anesthesia is usually not necessary for this. Afterwards, the dentist takes an impression of the teeth. Color determination determines the current color value of the teeth and allows the patient to determine the degree of lightening. If necessary, the patient will receive a temporary plastic restoration until the next appointment. In the meantime, the actual veneering shells are made in the dental laboratory on the basis of the impression. Once the veneers are done, they are fitted in and glued in by the dentist. Mostly it only takes two appointments, and the new smile is perfect.
What material are veneers made of?
Veneers are made of transparent ceramic. The attachment is made by means of a special adhesive. Glue and ceramic bowls are biologically well tolerated.
The shells are only replaced in about 2% of the cases in the first 6 years. The lifespan of veneers is dated to 10 years and more. The bite on hard substances such as Ice cubes or bones should be avoided.
What are the costs of veneers??
If you want to be beautiful, you do not have to suffer – but you have enough financial resources. Veneers are anything but cheap.
How to care for veneers?
Except for the regular, thorough brushing veneers need no further care.
Veneering with composite
In noninvasive veneering with composite, a tooth-colored, malleable dental material, the tooth surface is slightly roughened with a special solution and the composite applied in several layers and cured by means of a special lamp. All work steps can be performed by the dentist, but require a high level of competence in this area.
Composite veneers do not require grinding of the teeth, the tooth substance is completely preserved. Also, the composite layer can be removed by polishing again. It is not as durable as the ceramic bowls made by the dental technician and can discolour more easily.
