What is a veneer?

Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain or composite that are bonded with the appropriate procedure on the facial surface of natural teeth.

They do not cover the whole surface of teeth, like Crowns do. They are the treatment of choice for cases when we need to restore the aesthetic appearance of a smile and to rehabilitate teeth with discolorations, old damaged fillings, little cracks, or chippings and problematic shape or position.

Generally, veneers are used to restore the appearance of smile and to achieve the desired shape, position and anatomy of the teeth, avoiding extended, invasive therapies. The advantages of veneers are their longevity, their natural appearance with minimum removal of enamel or dentin, compared to crowns.



Treatment Overview


Treatment Timeline


Mini Veneers

In some clinical cases we can improve the esthetics of smile by fabricating veneers of minimum thickness, removing little or no tooth structure.
These restorations are called ‘mini veneers’, or veneers of minimum thickness.

The veneer covers the front surface of the tooth, depending on the design and desired outcome. Their minimum thickness can be as less as 0,1mm, similar to a contact lens. This type of restorations can be the best treatment option for patients who want to improve their smile, with a natural outcome.

Partial Veneers

Partial veneers cover a part and not the whole surface of the tooth. Usually, they need no or minimum preparation of the tooth. They restore broken or missing parts of the tooth, imperfections of position or anatomy, keeping intact the remaining enamel of the tooth.

Composite Veneers

This type of restoration is made of composite which is bonded directly on the dental surface. After the selection of the appropriate color and shade, the composite is bonded in layers at the surface of the tooth, in order to give the desired length, shape and its micro- characteristics.

Composite veneers can be the treatment of choice when we need an attractive alternative to ceramic veneers, at a lower price. The clinical procedure for composite veneers is called ‘bonding’.
