Dental Veneers

Veneers are very thin shells preferably made of porcelain, or in some instances of an alternative material. Unlike dental crowns they do not wrap around the entire tooth but cover only the visible outside portion of the tooth. Consequently, they do not provide any significant protection to the teeth and are done mainly for the cosmetic effect.

For this reason they are not very often done for individual teeth but rather in multiples in order to change mainly the colour and/or the shape of the patient's teeth. If done for this purpose I usually recommend that at least eight or preferably ten of them be placed. A lesser number is probably not sufficient to provide the pat Porcelain veneers are placed so precisely they are undetectable to the human eye.

The veneers, made of laboratory-processed porcelain, are bonded tightly to the surface of the tooth; the porcelain veneer can even provide additional strength to the overall tooth structure. A seal forms between the border of the tooth and the porcelain veneer preventing bacteria from penetrating the tooth's surface. Advantages of porcelain veneers: they are very natural, extremely durable and require a minimum of tooth reduction.
