Veneers are a type of veneer that is placed on the anterior surface of the teeth to improve the smile with a minimally invasive treatment. Dentistry specialists explain that this technique is used to improve small defects such as alterations in symmetry, size or slightly altered position.
What are dental veneers?
The veneers are sheets of approximately 0.3-1mm. thick that are placed on the anterior surface of the teeth in order to improve the smile with a minimally invasive treatment. This technique can be used to improve small defects such as alterations in symmetry, size or slightly altered position. They can also be used to change the color permanently in severe staining such as those produced by tetracyclines.
Veneers can be made of porcelain or composite. Porcelain ones are more esthetic but more expensive, since they are manufactured in a laboratory by a technician. Composite veneers, on the other hand, are more economical because they are made in the same cabinet on the patient.
What care do dental veneers require?
Dental veneers should be cared for like the rest of the teeth, i.e. cleaned daily. In the case of composite veneers, they should also be treated periodically, since this is a material that undergoes aging and color alterations due to food and smoking.
Dental veneers can last forever as long as they are properly cared for. Moreover, the results are very satisfactory.
