Ceramic veneers

The thinnest overlays for teeth, also called fixed microprostheses. Most often, veneers are installed on the teeth of the visible smile line. With their help, you can mask the chips and darkening of the enamel, the gaps between the teeth and achieve a “Hollywood smile”.

The main task of veneers is to replace damaged enamel and improve the aesthetic appeal of a smile.

Veneers - a fast and durable way to a beautiful smile


Modern dentistry has many methods that make it easy to restore the perfect smile. One of these methods is the installation of veneers - special ceramic plates that are installed directly on the visible areas of natural teeth.

Indications for installing ceramic veneers


Ugly shaped teeth. (Veneers allow you to improve it, make teeth larger and smoother. Sometimes, to correct one or more uneven teeth, dentists recommend installing ceramic veneers instead of wearing braces for 1-2 years.)

Discoloration of teeth due to trauma or dental treatment, years of smoking, or a birth defect.

Spaces between front and side teeth. It is possible to close them completely with veneers.

Significant cracks in the tooth enamel. When it is not possible to stop the destruction of enamel by the mineralization procedure, then dentists recommend installing ceramic veneers to protect the tooth.

Care for ceramic veneers and warranty

  • After installation, ceramic veneers do not cause discomfort, they are easy to clean and plaque almost does not accumulate on them. To maintain an aesthetic appearance for a long time, they require the same thorough care as other teeth. We also recommend visiting the dentist once a year for examination and professional cleaning of the oral cavity.

  • The service life of ceramic veneers is about 15-20 years.


We answer all the most important questions about veneers

There are always a lot of questions around veneers: “Can veneers be put on crooked teeth?” ,“What are lumineers?”, “Can I put on only 4 teeth - on the upper and lower?”, “What problems do they solve?”, “Will veneers look like false teeth?”

самые важные вопросы про виниры

Let's figure it out together with our orthopedic dentists, specialists in the restoration of teeth with veneers.

Let's deal with the types: what are orthopedic veneers? What are the benefits?

Orthopedic (ceramic) veneers are made of durable ceramics, their installation requires several visits to an orthopedic dentist: preparation (as dentists call the treatment of teeth for veneers) + taking casts, approving the shape of new teeth, then fixing.

Porcelain veneers are made in the laboratory from very strong and durable materials, which in their structure are as close as possible to tooth enamel. That is, the finished veneers will look as natural as "their" teeth. The service life of orthopedic veneers is about 15-20 years.

How are Lumineers different?

Lumineers are thin ceramic (porcelain) veneers produced by the patented technology of the American company DenMat.

This material should be stronger than the ceramics of conventional veneers, but there are disadvantages to this advantage.

Lumineers are almost opaque, and although they are treated with special stains to match the color of the teeth, on closer inspection their appearance is less close to the natural appearance of the teeth than, for example, classic porcelain veneers, which can consist of several layers and are also translucent.

So today the classic ceramic veneers made of E-MAX press ceramics are a more perfect product. The material has a higher strength. Lithium ceramic disilicate blanks for metal-free applications are available in four degrees of clarity. In each group from 3 to 16 different shades. This allows for high-strength veneers with translucent shade effects.

What should be the ideal veneers? What does quality work look like?

  • Transparent incisal edge. Natural teeth are slightly translucent in the region of the edge of the tooth, so should ceramic veneers. 

  • Natural shaped teeth. Not square, not like dentures.

  • Microrelief of the veneer. In nature, there are no teeth with a perfectly smooth surface. Veneers don't have to be completely smooth either. That is why our dental technicians use a microscope to create micro-pits and streaks on the porcelain.

  • Color. Natural teeth of non-uniform color - the tooth is brighter in the center, more transparent near the cutting edge, darker near the gum. Our dental technicians take into account all color nuances in the manufacture of ceramic onlays.

  • Healthy condition of the gums around the veneer. The veneer is a micro-prosthesis that covers the tooth. But if it is fixed illiterately or with insufficiently accurate marginal fit, the gum around the tooth may become inflamed.

Какими должны быть идеальные виниры?

Is it possible to put veneers without turning at all? Or is it a myth?

This is not a myth, but the case is quite rare. And for such a method, there should be indications: the absence of any bite pathologies, healthy teeth without caries and fillings. Another situation when turning is not needed is the lack of volume of the vestibular surface of the tooth (that is, the front surface of the tooth is flat, it needs to be added volume). And you need to remember that it will not be possible to radically change the color of your teeth with veneers without turning.

Можно поставить виниры совсем без обточки? Или это миф?
