Dental Veneers: Is This Cosmetic Solution Right for You?


Everyone wants beautiful white teeth and an attractive smile. Veneers can restore a perfect smile, whether for unsightly discolorations that are resistant to bleaching or for broken and cracked teeth. Even if teeth are slightly misaligned, corners have broken off or the teeth have a changed surface due to external irritation such as acidic effects, veneers protect the tooth surface from further wear and discoloration.

Visually, veneers are very natural-looking, wafer-thin ceramic veneers. They are very popular with celebrities and made famous by Hollywood stars, whose smiles always appear perfect. Despite their thinness, veneers are very durable and robust. The high durability and the natural look ensure an excellent improvement in aesthetics, which is why veneers are in great demand with us today.

Where are veneers used?


Veneers are most commonly used on the front teeth. Both in the lower and upper jaw, veneers are installed from canine to canine tooth, in order to correct irregularities in the tooth structure, tooth color, or tooth position. A veneer is often the best and cheapest solution if one of the incisors is broken or chipped.

Are veneers suitable for me?


A veneer can do a lot for the appearance of your front teeth, but it may not be suitable in all situations.

Veneers are suitable for:

  • Discoloration on the teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • damaged tooth surfaces
  • Defects in the tooth enamel
  • Chips or to cover gaps

Veneers are not recommended as a replacement for large dental fillings or if the incisors are damaged during sports (boxing or ball sports), for example. When grinding your teeth or when nails are chewed, veneers are permitted, but in the night a special oral device can be used to protect the veneers from damage.

Can veneers be used to whiten or replace teeth?


A popular way to beautify teeth is by bleaching them. Put simply, the tooth surface is lightened in tone up to a certain level. But even this aesthetic has its limits, so that, for example, hereditary discoloration or teeth that have already been crowned cannot be lightened by means of bleaching.

If you decide to whiten your front teeth, veneers can perfectly help you achieve that radiant white smile to improve your appearance and boost your self-confidence. If you are interested to learn more or get dental veneers at an affordable rate, get in touch with us today.
