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 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.
What are veneers?
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.
How long do veneers last?
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.
How many treatments are necessary?
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.
How long does a treatment take?
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.
Which toothbrush is best to be used with veneers?
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.
