What are veneers?
Ceramic veneers or facets represent aesthetically the best quality solution for changing the color, the size and the shape of natural teeth. It is a method used for maximum preservation of the tooth substance with minimal filing down of only the front surface of the tooth, and sometimes, depending on the indication, the tooth substance does not even need to be removed (no-prep veneers). It is very important to cement veneers to the enamel, the first teeth surface, so that they are well bound to the teeth.
Ceramic veneers are thin ceramic flakes that cover the front surface and the cutting edge of the teeth. In some situations, a smaller part of the inner surface of the teeth can also be covered. Veneers are made of all ceramic systems that give the most beautiful aesthetic results, while at the same time their mechanical properties enable excellent resistance in the mouth. They are made in a dental laboratory with computerized CAD-CAM technology, and based on the scan of the dental impression of your teeth taken in the dental clinic with the finest addition silicons.

If it is not necessary to prepare the teeth, we can immediately proceed with taking the dental impression. Based on the dental impression, the technician makes ceramic facets for no more than 2-3 days. The procedure is very delicate, requires considerable experience of the technician and a strong sense of aesthetics.
On the next appointment, with help of special Try in paste, we will try out the veneers, so that the patient can see how they look before the permanent cementing. When doing the veneers try out there are 3 shades of the Try in paste, as well as for permanent cementing there are 3 shades of composite cement. Here is necessary to outline that the color of the veneers after permanent cementing depends in a great way on the color of the used cement. This is why it is very important to estimate the right color of the cement.
