Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells put onto the outer surface of the teeth to cover minor deficiencies in shape and colour.

Aesthetis filling means that the material of the filling and it's colour will not differ from your tooth's natural colouring. Aesthetic fillings are recommended for small or medium-size dacays. These are direct fillings and are made by the dentist in the dentist's surgery. If the decay is bigger, the filling is a coproduction of the dentist and the technician and parts of the work is done in the technician's lab.

Aesthetic white filling is a type of direct filling that has natural tooth colour and fixes to light.
