WHAT ARE VENEERS?
Veneers are thin lamellas attached to the front surface of the teeth to enhance their appearance.
They are often made of ceramic or composite materials that adhere to your teeth.
Answering whether it is possible to put veneers on uneven teeth, one should understand what tasks veneer prosthetics solves in dentistry. Veneers and the finest lumineers are special ceramic onlays that instantly transform a smile.

Veneers can solve the tooth’s slight crookedness, for example, when they are crowded or have interdental spaces. However, microprosthetics does not solve the pathological occlusion issue, unlike braces, retainers, and trainers. Despite the high cost of one veneer, the method has several disadvantages. Therefore, before installation, it is necessary to clarify the advisability of applying ceramic onlays.
