Or how to get a perfect, natural-looking smile. Dental veneers are thin ceramic or resin coverings that are permanently bonded to the surface of the teeth to modify all aspects of their appearance. They look exactly like natural teeth, and the difference between veneers and natural teeth is invisible to the naked eye.
The dentist always performs a complete check-up of your mouth to make sure you don’t have other problems or contraindications to placing veneers.
Depending on the material used, veneers are extremely resistant to wear and breakage. They:
The treatment follows a strict protocol established with your dentist. Remember, just like any cooking recipe, it’s important to follow all the steps and not rush things.
Depending on the situation, we may gently remove a thin layer of dental tissue to make room for the ceramic veneer.
Our veneers are made by master ceramists in Meyrin, Switzerland.
Once you get your permanent veneers, you’ll be able to proudly show off your pearly whites at the Montreux Jazz Festival! The session ends with personalized recommendations on caring for your dental veneers.
The number of sessions varies according to the complexity of your situation and the number of tests needed to approve the final look. In most cases, you’ll need just 4 appointments.
Dental veneers accurately reproduce all the characteristics of a natural tooth and it becomes impossible to tell with the naked eye which one is a natural tooth, and which one is a veneer.

You can also pay in instalments.
That includes your dentist’s services, the work done by our Meyrin lab ceramics specialists, and the temporary resin veneer.
Like for ceramic veneers, the price includes the work done by our Meyrin lab ceramics specialists and the temporary resin veneer.
Bear in mind that the cost of each veneer also depends on the amount of work involved for the lab, which in turn depends on your clinical situation.
Veneers are intended to exactly match the characteristics of your natural teeth while improving their appearance. In some cases, that may mean adding imperfections to make them more natural-looking and totally unique. That kind of detail requires time-consuming, painstaking work by our master ceramicists and means higher costs for you.
If you are having multiple veneers made, on the other hand, the cost per veneer will be lower.
No matter how many veneers you have done, well-made veneers are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
A veneer is a thin layer of ceramic (porcelain) that is cemented to the outer surface of your teeth.
To do that, we depolish the tooth or shave off a minimally invasive thickness, usually about 0.7 mm although we may remove up to 1 mm in more extreme cases.
This “artistic” step is extremely important and allows you to define your goals for your appearance. You will get to see what your finished smile will look like before the procedure, since your temporary veneers will be scanned to produce your permanent ones.
That means there’s no risk that you won’t be happy with your new smile since you approve it in advance during the temporary veneer phase.
There are no real contraindications for veneers.
However, certain factors may make them difficult to apply or maintain over the long term, including:
It’s also important to note that before starting the veneer process, your mouth needs to be in good shape and any cavities, infections, or gum inflammation need to be treated.
Veneers offer a wide range of benefits. They can be used to:
Veneers can permanently resolve functional and cosmetic issues in just 3 appointments, with no need for longer treatment options like orthodontics.
They can be designed for a natural look that fits perfectly with your smile and face.
You might not even need a full mouth of veneers for a great new smile! Just 4 to 6 veneers are usually enough to transform your whole smile since its appearance really depends on your 6 front teeth.
In fact, most of our patients get just 4 or 6 veneers and our dentists carefully integrate their ceramic veneers with their natural teeth.
Like all cosmetic procedures, veneers are not covered by basic Lamal insurance.
If you have supplemental dental insurance, they may be covered depending on your coverage and deductible. We recommend contacting your insurer to ask!
There are a few cases when your insurance will cover veneers:
But the basic rule of thumb is still that, despite their functional benefits, you will usually pay out-of-pocket for veneers.
