Da Vinci veneers are ultra-thin, high-strength shells made from porcelain. They are used for cosmetically enhancing the appearance of teeth by bonding them to the front surface. Their purpose is to mask discolorations and to give a brighter smile.
Fixing Da Vinci veneers requires very little to no anesthesia as it’s not a very involved procedure.
Da Vinci veneers have the following advantages over other porcelain veneers:
- They are made from a specific type of fluorescent porcelain that is of a higher quality of strength and beauty than normal veneers.
- They are resistant to staining even in cases of prolonged use of coffee, wine, tea or cigarettes.
- Da Vinci veneers bond to the tooth tenaciously, achieving the desired strength for lasting results.
- Your appearance will look natural because they are very aesthetically pleasing.

Closing gaps in between your teeth
Dentists use Da Vinci veneers to effectively close or reduce gaps between your teeth.
If you have mild to moderate crowding of your teeth, Da Vinci veneers can be used to make them appear straight, especially if you don’t want to go through a lengthy treatment with braces.
Your teeth could be so badly stained that even after they are whitened, some stains still remain. Da Vinci veneers can be used to conceal such imperfections and transform your smile.
Discolored teeth as a result of root-filling
Root-filling will cause a tooth to eventually discolor and since removing such a discoloration by whitening can be involving and might end up weakening the tooth, Da Vinci veneers are a great option for masking the discoloration.
If you have broken teeth, perhaps as a result of an accident or any other trauma, Da Vinci veneers can be used to build them up again and restore their natural shape.
Procedure for getting da Vinci Veneers
Diagnosis and planning
The first thing your dentist will do is assess your problem and discuss your objectives with you. He will then recommend a suitable treatment plan customized just for you. To get the results you want, it’s important to actively participate in designing your smile.
Your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing at least a millimeter from the surface. This is in order to create room for the veneer. He will then take molds of your teeth and send them to the lab to get your veneers custom-made. You will have to wait 2 to 3 weeks for the lab process to be completed. During this time, you might have to go through teeth whitening.
In the bonding stage, your dentist will check the shape and size of the veneers and adjust as needed. He will then treat the surface, cement the veneer into place and cure it to harden.
Da Vinci veneers can last for 10 years or more depending on how well you care for your teeth.
