Veneers are ultra-thin (average thickness 1mm) shells of a ceramic material (porcelain) that are bonded to the front part of the patient’s teeth, in order to fix aesthetic imperfections, as far as shape, colour or occlusion problems are concerned.
The most common imperfections that can be corrected using veneers include:
- slightly crooked teeth,
- discolored teeth,
- chipped teeth,
- gaps between teeth,
- uneven teeth.
The three main types of veneers are: lithium disilicate (e-max), non-prep and feldspathic porcelain veneers.
