Veneers are aesthetic solution for situations when own teeth are damaged, inappropriate in shape or just don´t match with the smile. They are usually made on teeth which are visible during smile so particularly upper incisors, canines and premolars. They are mostly made out of ceramics, which has from view of aesthetics, the best features. Its purpose is to replace missing or damaged layer of enamel. These ´plates´ are fixed to teeth adhesively so in the same way as white dental fillings.
Thanks to modern technologies used during ceramics manufacture it is possible to make veneers of minimal thickness and grind the own tooth minimally or not at all.
From long-term point of view it is relatively successful kind of therapy. But it is necessary to be careful , biting hard objects and impacts are quite risky.
