Dental veneers or ” Hollywood smile »
Dental veneers are thin ceramic films that are bonded to the visible part of the tooth. With this type of service, defects can easily be masked and therefore the shade of the teeth, their alignment and their shape can be changed.
Veneers are mainly intended for front and visible teeth. There is no need to consider this type of technique for molars that are located at the back of the mouth.
Veneers are made in accordance with the smile line, the position of the lips, and the orientation of the pupillary line (the one passing through both eyes) .
A new technology now makes it possible to place veneers without any preparation, thanks to increasingly thinner materials that adapt perfectly to the biology, shape and anatomy of the tooth.
The veneers integrate naturally with the rest of the teeth and are well accepted by the gums, which regain their position within a few days. They do not require any special protection or precautions other than impeccable oral hygiene.
WHO ARE THEY FOR?
Veneers are an effective solution for those who want to regain a beautiful smile by masking the defects of one or more teeth: too pronounced shade, slight malpositioning, abnormal shape … Of course, this technique only concerns visible and incisive teeth.
WHAT IS THE INTEREST COMPARED TO OTHER TREATMENTS ?
Veneers give better results than conventional whitening. Especially if the teeth have a very pronounced discoloration due to the use of antibiotics such as tetracyclines whose veneers are a very effective solution.
In contrast to conventional orthodontic treatment, veneers allow for minimum tooth spacing without braces.
Another advantage to mention is that they allow correcting, in a single treatment, several associated anomalies, such as yellow, spaced or too long teeth.
