Veneers: wafer-thin veneers for a radiant smile

A bright smile with white, even teeth is for many people the epitome of beauty and health. But sometimes discolorations or small irregularities disturb the desired tooth appearance. Wafer-thin veneers – offer you the opportunity to make things easier and get closer to the perfect smile

For whom are veneers suitable?

Eliminate discoloration or make crooked teeth appear straighter

Veneers are particularly useful in the front teeth region. They help to eliminate discoloration or make crooked teeth look straighter. People with congenital or acquired defects of the tooth enamel (often recognizable as white spots) also benefit from them. Minor misalignments of the front teeth can be compensated as well as smaller gaps or chipped areas on the incisors or canines.

What can you expect at the biohealth dentist?

Veneers are covering shells of ceramic. They are attached to the real teeth with a special adhesive. The dentist has to prepare those a little bit before.

If you opt for conventional veneers, only a very thin layer of your own tooth is removed – about 0.3 to 1 mm is sufficient here. The conventional veneer is specially adapted to your dental situation in the dental laboratory. It will later have exactly the same color as the remaining or adjacent teeth. After finishing the veneer, the dentist uses a special adhesive to attach the shell to the tooth. This bonding process takes about 20 minutes per tooth. A conventional veneer has an average life span of five to ten years. It is then replaced by a new one at the dentist.

In addition to the conventional veneers, there are also the so-called “non-prep veneers”. These have a much shorter life span, but can be applied to the teeth without prior grinding, as they are only 0.2 mm thick. Even though this variant does not last as long as the conventional one, it is gentler on the tooth. Since the tooth substance is completely preserved, there is no risk of nerve damage.
