Dental Veneers need about 2 visits in about 7 days. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain made to be conveniently placed on the front surface of the teeth; we can compare the teeth lenses with artificial nails that girls attach to their nails to give it a more beautiful shape; sometimes the “composite” colour is used as a natural tooth colour rather than a porcelain colour.

So, porcelain sheets or dental veneers as called is the solution for several reasons, the most important of which:

Dental veneers can improve the colour, shape, and position of the teeth. The porcelain colour can be chosen to give the right colour and improve the colour of the yellow teeth or to whiten the front teeth.
Dental Veneers can make broken or damaged teeth look full again after the treatment. Porcelain covers the entire frontal part of the tooth, with a more thick part to replace the broken part of the tooth.
dental lenses can also be used to close small gaps, while they may not be applied when using orthodontic.
In some cases where one tooth is not in its proper location, we can use the dental lenses to change its shape and position so that the teeth appear ideally arranged in an equivalent way.
FAQ – Dental veneers
Dental veneers make the teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and processed in specialized dental laboratories, and the dentist uses strong adhesives that ensure constant results and teeth durability, very little dental preparation is required. Some lenses do not need any prior tooth preparation.
The veneer needs at least two visits, In the first visit the teeth are prepared and the desired lens’s colour is met,
And the second visit is to compare lenses and arrange them appropriately. Your dentist will show you the new lenses on your teeth to make sure you are satisfied and grateful for the results. The veneers are then placed on the original teeth with a special adhesive, which strongly attaches them to the teeth.
Veneers last for many years but it can break or crack in accidents, just like natural teeth. The dentist will tell you how long the installed veneers should last.
The small fractured parts can be repaired, or new ones may be installed if necessary.
