Veneers - is a layer of material placed over a tooth, veneers also improve the aesthetics of a smile or and protect the tooth's surface from damage. Many people have small teeth resulting in spaces that may not be easily closed by orthodontics. Some people have worn away the edges of their teeth resulting in a prematurely aged appearance, while others may have malposition tooth/ teeth that appear crooked. Multiple veneers can close these spaces, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, fill the black triangles between teeth caused by gum recession, provide a uniform color, shape, and symmetry, and make the teeth appear straight.

We have two material used to fabricate a veneer;

Composite Veneer - it is directly placed (built-up in the mouth) and later bonded to the tooth, typically using resin cement.

Porcelain Veneers - Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain, each made uniquely by our dental lab to provide a perfect fit over the front surface of a tooth. They are a non-invasive dental solution to chips, gaps, broken, discolored and crooked teeth, which are skillfully shaped to look entirely natural with the unique ability to cover any unattractive stains.

We have two kinds of materials for porcelain veneers;

Empress Esthetic - is an improvement to Empress that increased the esthetics by delivering greater translucence and vitality. The material opens up a host of unexpected possibilities, particularly for veneers. Stained or cutback and layered with, the new Empress Esthetic has an enhance

E.max - provides the same outstanding esthetics and precision marginal accuracy of the original Empress system. IPS e.max is fabricated the same way as original Empress, but consists of completely different ingredients. e.max consists of a lithium disilicate core that is layered with a fluor-apatite glass ceramic. This process mimics natural tooth structure, not only in composition, but also in wear rates and natural esthetics the layering with a translucent enamel-like layer.
