Veneers are a ceramic restoration treatment that are fixed to the teeth using adhesive techniques. They are employed in dental cosmetic treatments as a way to reconstruct a smile altered by discolouration, wear, narrow teeth, etc.
The main advantage over other type of veneers (composite) is that they do not age with time. Nowadays, thanks to advances in the manufacture of ceramic facings, we are able to carry out treatments which are much more respectful to the teeth while they are being rehabilitated or aesthetically improved.
Without requiring a complicated or painful intervention, and offering excellent results, putting in veneers is a much-sought reconstructive technique, above all in those cases where smile reconstruction is more complicated.
On occasions, the teeth require complete recovering - either because existing crowns ought to be replaced or because aesthetic or functional requirements make it necessary.
In the former, it is preferable to make totally ceramic crowns, with no internal metal structure so as to promote aesthetic integration.
These are made up of thin sheets of resin composite that are carefully placed and sculpted over the ungrounded tooth; and as a rule, with no need for an anaesthesic. They offer high-quality aesthetic results and have the great advantage of not being an invasive treatment since they do not weaken the dental structure.
When the patient decides to improve their smile smile with composite veneers, it is possible to arrange a meeting where they can choose the tooth colour as well as other personal prefrences, as functionality permits.
They can be removed whenever the patient wishes. The smile alterations are produced in a single morning session. The average lifespan of a composite veneer is around 10-15 years depending on the patient´s habits (tobacco, coffee, wine etc). The great advantage they offer is that they can be retouched; consequently, after some time has passed, one only has to remove the top coat and replace it with a new one.
