"My husband made a present to me for my 40th birthday - a new smile. I am glad that now I has become even more beautiful. Many thanks to our doctor, Maria Imshenetskaya!"
With age, our teeth wear down, change colour, chip and crack. But we still want to see a beautiful smile in our reflection in the mirror. Moreover, today, a person’s success is determined by their appearance, and the state of their teeth is one of the important criteria.
This problem can be solved with the help of veneers, a type of fixed restoration. These are custom-made dental overlays (micro-prostheses) in the form of plates that correct defects in the tooth crown.
Dental overlays have been used since the 1930s. Perfectly white dental plates were attached just as other dentures. Hollywood celebrities were the first to try them. Modern fixation technology was developed in 1982. Nowadays, it is one of the most popular and reliable methods in aesthetic dentistry and anti-age prosthetics.
Indications for Veneers
Veneers are a sparing alternative to crowns. They are installed on the front of a depulped or living tooth, provided that a sufficient surface area is maintained. Only a small amount of tooth enamel is shaved for better contact with the plate. Usually veneers are 0.3 mm to 1.5 mm thick.
With modern dental microscopes we can work within the enamel, so the depth of preparation can be reduced to 0.2–0.7 mm. This makes it possible to preserve the enamel, to which the veneer is fixed with its tooth surface, and achieve the desired optical effect. The service life is extended to 10 years; it can be extended if one follows recommendations of the dentist, maintains good oral hygiene and has regular dental visits.
It is possible to change the colour of teeth by 1–2 or more tones.
