M1 Dental — Veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin ceram­ic shells that are bond­ed to the tooth sur­face with a spe­cial adhe­sive. These veneers can be used to cor­rect slight tooth mis­align­ments, tooth gaps, tooth shades and local dis­col­orations. Veneers give the vis­i­ble sur­faces of the teeth an opti­mized appear­ance with an indi­vid­u­al­ly cor­rect­ed tooth shade.

In a per­son­al con­sul­ta­tion appoint­ment, the patient’s request for veneers and a suit­able treat­ment method are dis­cussed by the den­tist in charge. Depend­ing on the desired result and the ini­tial sit­u­a­tion, dif­fer­ent veneers are used. Some ceram­ic veneers can be bond­ed to the teeth with­out much prepa­ra­tion (non-prep veneers), oth­ers require pri­or prepa­ra­tion with light grind­ing of the enam­el (prep veneers).

VEENERS — modern 3D technology

Before the veneers can be used, a thin lay­er (0.3 — 1.0 mm) is removed from the enam­el. This prepa­ra­tion is per­formed under local anes­the­sia. The aim is to achieve an opti­mal cos­met­ic and durable result. After a den­tal impres­sion tak­ing, the teeth are scanned with the most mod­ern 3D tech­nol­o­gy. With the help of the 3D tooth mod­el, the ceram­ic shells are man­u­fac­tured for the patient. After a suc­cess­ful fit­ting, the den­tist applies the veneers to the tooth.

Advantages of veneers

The thin veneers are bio­com­pat­i­ble and there­fore also suit­able for patients with aller­gies. Plaque and oth­er deposits or dis­col­orations hard­ly stick to the smooth sur­face of the ceram­ic shells.

Veneers and teeth grind­ing

 If you are aware that you are press­ing or grind­ing your teeth, you should have a splint made by your den­tist after apply­ing the ceram­ic shells. This pre­vents too much pres­sure being exert­ed on your teeth and the veneers from com­ing off your teeth.

We gen­er­al­ly advise preg­nant women against cos­met­ic den­tal pro­ce­dures.

Light-Veneers

Light-Veneers are so-called non-prep veneers. By apply­ing new tech­niques, it is pos­si­ble to pro­duce ceram­ic shells as thin as con­tact lens­es (about 0.3 mm). Lum­i­neers have the advan­tage that they can be applied direct­ly to the tooth struc­ture, i.e. with­out pri­or grind­ing of the tooth. With Lum­i­neers, no major cor­rec­tive mea­sures (tooth mis­align­ments and changes in shape) are pos­si­ble. Teeth whiten­ing, on the oth­er hand, can be achieved very well with Lum­i­neers, but larg­er colour defects, for exam­ple in the enam­el (white spots), can­not be cov­ered. Lum­i­neers are an excel­lent alter­na­tive to bleach­ing because the tooth sub­stance is not attacked by the thin ceram­ic shells.

FAQ

Veneers are wafer-thin veneers that are bond­ed to the tooth sur­face with a spe­cial adhe­sive. Slight tooth mis­align­ments, tooth gaps, tooth colours and local dis­coloura­tion can be cor­rect­ed.

With good den­tal hygiene, veneers can last approx. 10 years and longer. It is no prob­lem to replace the ceram­ic shells as new veneers can sim­ply be applied to the teeth with min­i­mal regrind­ing.

The num­ber of treat­ments depends on how many teeth a patient desires to cov­er with veneers. We esti­mate between 4 and 6 treat­ments. Con­sul­ta­tion meet­ings are not includ­ed.

The dura­tion of treat­ment depends on the num­ber of teeth that need grind­ing or are to be cov­ered. Not all teeth are treat­ed at the same time. The upper and low­er jaw are tak­en care of on dif­fer­ent treat­ment days. Usu­al­ly the treat­ment starts in the upper jaw. With 10 teeth, grind­ing takes about 1 hour. Adhe­sion of 10 teeth can be esti­mat­ed at approx­i­mate­ly 1.5 hours.

That’s entire­ly up to you. If you are used to using a man­u­al tooth­brush, you can con­tin­ue to do so. How­ev­er, please be care­ful not to apply too much pres­sure to the teeth. If you are cur­rent­ly using an elec­tric tooth­brush, you can con­tin­ue to do so with­out hes­i­ta­tion. You do not need to change any­thing in the den­tal hygiene rou­tine.
