Use of cosmetic veneers:
Composite veneers are used for irregularly formed teeth, either size or appearance, and spaces between teeth. The treatment involves applying a composite material to the surface of a tooth, which is of the same colour, moulding it into the desired shape and using a bonding agent. The patient does not require local anaesthetic as it is a painless procedure and, as it is reversible, it is possible to easily carry out any modifications considered necessary. ICEO Dental recommends composite veneers as a simple, excellent obtain the shape, size and appearance of teeth most suitable for their patients.
A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made-to-measure in a laboratory which is bonded to a tooth to give it the size, shape and colour desired. In the case of porcelain veneers, several visits to the dentist are required to firstly reduce the thickness of the tooth, then take measurements for the veneer, pass on the details to the laboratory and, once ready, bond the veneer to the surface of the tooth. Unlike composite veneers, this process is irreversible.
Closing gaps between teeth (diastema) and correction of dental asymmetries
The answer to diastema (gaps between teeth) is to gradually apply a particular composite to the teeth until the space has been closed. This treatment can be carried out in just one visit to the dentist with no anaesthesia involved, no drilling of the teeth and the final result lasts for years.
