Gentle, minimally invasive correction of front teeth with veneers in our dental practice in Bad Honnef near Bonn
Most of the time, teeth are considered beautiful if they have an ideal shape and color as well as even alignment. Not many people, however, have impeccable teeth. Frequently, a flawed position of teeth (crooked teeth), broken off teeth, uneven front teeth or discolored teeth that cannot be whitened negatively affect the overall esthetic appearance.
With veneers, such small defects of the front teeth (for instance teeth damaged by decay or dental substance lost through an accident) as well as esthetic corrections of discolored, unattractive or crooked teeth can be rectified.
What are veneers and what benefits do they provide?
Veneers are thin ceramic coatings that are affixed to the surface of the front teeth. Based on the application, they are between 0.8 mm and 2 mm thick and therefore facilitate a gentle build-up or replacement of defective dental substance. These veneers have an extremely natural appearance since the surface effect is the same as that of your natural teeth due to the outstanding light refraction of fully ceramic material.
Cosmetic correction with veneers is a minimally invasive procedure. This means that the dental substance is protected as much as possible and only the outer enamel layer is removed. The application of veneers is considered a highly specialized procedure in dental medicine, because preparation and production of the ceramic veneers requires especially detailed and exact work of dentist and dental technician. The teeth are smoothed down gently and carefully before the impression for the veneers is taken and the perfect color is selected together with the patient. Impression and color selection are important criteria for the dental laboratory that models the veneers. The veneers are produced so they look like beautiful natural teeth.
Additional benefits of the ultra-thin ceramic veneer are longevity, durability and excellent tolerability.
Placement and care of veneers
The extremely thin ceramic veneers cover the tooth like a crown. In order to affix them, the affected tooth must first be prepared. For this purpose, a thin layer of the tooth is ground off (between 0.5 and 0.8 mm). After grinding, the dentist will take an impression of the truth and forward it to the dental laboratory. With the help of the impression, the dental technician produces the delicate but very resilient veneer. It takes the dental technician several days to perform this customized work. Therefore, the patient is provided with a temporary synthetic veneer in the meantime. When the veneers are ready, the affected teeth are prepared and the thin veneers are affixed carefully.
The careful placement of this gentle dental correction normally takes only 30 minutes and involves no risks.
Veneers can last up to 15 years (possibly even longer). But as in the case of composites, good at-home oral hygiene as well as regular professional teeth cleaning is important prerequisite for the longevity of veneers.
