A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth to improve the aesthetics of a smile. While its aesthetic result is perfect, it is congruent with gums and dental tissue. A veneer also helps protect the tooth’s surface from damage.
Porcelain veneers are the best prosthesis to imitate natural teeth. Nonetheless, they are harder to apply compared to other prosthesis and require immaculate dentistry work.
Situations that porcelain veneers are applied:
* Permanent coloring on frontal teeth
* Spaced-out front teeth
* Front teeth with large crowns, when aesthetic results cannot be achieved
* Broken or worn teeth
* When patient is dissatisfied with the color/shape of his/her teeth
