Veneer

Veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surfacer to:
  • Improve the aesthetics of a tooth (uneven spaces between the front teeth can be corrected by veneers)
  • Protect a damaged tooth surface
Veneer Types
  • Composite veneer is directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia.
  • Porcelain veneer is indirectly fabricated

Usage of veneers

Venners provide very good aesthetics with minimal tooth preparation. Traditionally, a reduction of around 0.5 mm is required for a porcelain veneer. Composite veneers are becoming more popular as they are easy to repair, whereas porcelain veneers have a tendency to fracture. It can be very difficult to match the shade of an individual veneer to the remaining teeth, hence placing several veneers is common.
There are some newer veneers which do not require any drilling in order to remove tooth structure. Instead, these veneers are constructed to be placed on top of teeth. As a result, treatment is less invasive and may be less time-consuming. On the other hand, since the teeth are not reduced in size the veneers may appear too large or bulky unless the material used is extremely thin. Therefore, the success for these veneers is best when limited to specific cases.
Veneers may be used cosmetically to resurface teeth such as to make them appear straighter and possess a more aesthetically pleasing alignment. This may be a quick way to improve the appearance of malposed teeth without need to use orthodontics. However, the amount of malposition of teeth may be such that veneers alone may not be enough to correct the aesthetic imbalance. Instead, orthodontics would need to be used, or orthodontics combined with veneers.
