What is cosmetic dentistry meaning?
The veneer is a very thin layer of material that is placed on the surface of the tooth to remove cracks and fractures of the teeth or give them a beautiful appearance.
These veneers are either made of porcelain or composite resin.
Resin is a liquid substance that can become a hard, permanent solid.
This material is very useful in dentistry due to its ability to bond strongly with teeth as well as its tooth colour.
These veneers are placed directly on the tooth in the dentist’s office and are formed by the dentist and then fastened with special beams.
Another type of veneer is called laminate or ceramic veneer which has a shell shape.
These ceramic shells are produced in the laboratory based on the shape of the patient’s teeth
And then glued to the teeth.
The process of laminating teeth takes two or more sessions
While a composite veneer can be done in one session.
