Most visible defects in teeth, whether the blemish is genetic or acquired, can be covered up by aesthetic porcelain veneers.  The veneers conceal the blemishes and restore a beautiful and healthy smile.

The veneers are usually thin porcelain plates, which cover the surface of one or more front teeth. The thinness and natural color of these plates make their presence almost impossible to notice. The teeth that receive the coating look exactly like the person’s other teeth. The thickness of the coatings ranges from 0.2 to 0.5 mm. Despite their thinness, the veneers are highly resistant to abrasion. To ensure durability, the coatings are made of high-quality porcelain, or of mixtures of other strong composite materials.

Veneers are laboratory-manufactured. They are custom-made, specially tailored for the size, shape and other characteristics of the person’s teeth.  Regarding porcelain veneers, there is variety of types of porcelain. Each type is produced differently, which results in different so there are differing density and different levels of transparency.


  • Biologically adapted to the human body.
  • Natural appearance.
  • High resistance to wear and tear.
  • Shade/color does not change over time.


Composite Veneers: The doctor builds these from mixtures of strong durable materials.

Choose composite coatings when you have:

  • Slight grooves between teeth.
  • Teeth with surface fractures or cracks.
  • Unaesthetic tooth shape
  • Oversized Teeth
  • Teeth discoloration (stains, yellowish color, etc.)
  • Hypersensitivity of the teeth that cannot be cured by therapeutic intervention.

Veneers can be employed only on teeth that are not decayed. Therefore, where decay is present, it must be treated before the tooth can be coated with the veneer.
