What is a dental veneer?
Dental veneers are thin laminates with a thickness of 0.5 to 0.6 millimeters, placed on the teeth with a minimum of preparation and effort. They are placed away from the gums to avoid retraction. In the long term, their appearance and functional results are optimal, which allows patients to regain their natural smile.
The dental veneers correspond to the color of your existing teeth or to a lighter shade that you want. Porcelain veneers are used to fill the spaces between teeth, correct stains and even repair broken or chipped teeth. The dentist takes an impression of the teeth to create the veneers that will be glued to the tooth.
