What are veneers?
Veneers are very thin, tooth-shaped pieces of ceramic material, normally porcelain, that are placed over the top of the teeth to create a perfect new smile. The veneers are custom-made to ensure that they fit your teeth perfectly and you can choose from different shapes and shades to create your ideal smile; some people choose a natural look, while others prefer a more glamorous, celebrity-style smile.
Veneers are an ideal treatment for people who have:
- chipped teeth
- worn or uneven teeth
- discoloured or stained teeth
- small gaps between the teeth
Veneer treatment is usually carried out in two sessions; during the first session, the teeth are prepared, which involves removing a very fine layer of the tooth tissue and then creating an impression using dental putty. The veneers are then custom-made to fit the mould. Once they are ready, the veneers can then be applied over the top of the natural teeth to produce a beautiful new smile.
At Dublin18 Dental Care near Foxrock Village we are proud to offer two of the world’s leading veneer treatments: Lumineers and Da Vinci veneers, both of which have been featured on famous American and British television makeover shows.
Lumineers are ultra-thin veneers, which are just 2mm thick; they have a natural looking glossy sheen and as they are so fine, only minimal tooth preparation is required.
Da Vinci veneers are made in California; they are very thin and have a very lifelike finish, which makes them a popular choice.
