Porcelain veneers are thin layers of ceramic material that cover the entire front of the tooth to give a better appearance. They are used to change the shape, color and/or position of teeth.
Porcelain veneers are contraindicated in patients with:
Poor oral hygiene
Skeletal intramaxillary alterations
Anterior crossbite (correct previously with orthodontics)
In the first session the aspect of the tooth is studied, then it is prepared by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel for the dental veneer to adhere properly.
Once the porcelain veneers are designed, the patient returns for a second session where the dentist placed them. Once the veneer has been cemented the patient can talk and eat normally. It is a minimally invasive treatment as it is not necessary to modify the original shape of the tooth.
Porcelain veneers are long lasting pieces that once cemented can not be repaired or removed. They are usually not rejected by the patient as long as they are properly fitted and follow the dentist's indications.
