Venner (Hollywood Smile)
What is a Venner?
A Venner is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Sometimes a natural-colour ‘composite' material is used instead of porcelain.
A dentist may offer dental Venner s to correct a wide range of dental issues, such as:
- Discolored teeth that can’t be corrected by whitening (root canal treatment, tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride causes the discoloration of the tooth)
- Worn teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth, which can be restored by Venner s
- Venner s used to close the gaps between the frontal teeth
What are the advantages of venner?
Venner s make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special, strong adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of Venner s don't need any preparation at all.
