Ceramic veneers are used for eliminating aesthetic problems caused by the fissure, shape or size of the front teeth and they are fitted on the visible front part of the teeth.
As opposed to a crown that covers the whole tooth in the case of ceramic veneers we have to sacrifice less dental tissue. Ceramic veneers can have almost the same colour and transparency as the neighbouring teeth. As they are made of pressed ceramics they are not only very aesthetic, but also durable because they fit exactly the tooth.
Advantages: it is aesthetic and it fits the tooth well on long term.
Disadvantages: it is expensive because of the technology used. The preparation of the ceramic veneers takes at least two appointments. (1. Preparation, taking impression, 2. Fitting.)
