Porcelain veneers are popular and used widely in the cosmetic dentistry as they provide a harmonized color, shape and proportion to the teeth thereby improving the aesthetic appearance of previously damaged tooth.
Porcelain Veneers are used when following incidents occur to the teeth:
At Ivory dental clinic, we follow two techniques to install a porcelain veneer and the methods are direct build up or indirect method. Here we are discussing the steps followed to install a porcelain veneer:
Clinical review: Before the placement for porcelain veneer, the dentists investigate the oral cavity for any oral health distress. The dentist identifies the best shade of porcelain veneer using a imaging technology that provides a preview of the desired result to the patient before the actual treatment procedure. This provides a clear view to the patient about the outcome of the procedure and can discuss with the dentist on any variations if required.
Preparation of the tooth: The dentist administers a dose of local anesthetic to reduce the pain and discomfort caused during the procedure and initiates tooth reshaping.
During a direct build up method, the porcelain veneers are crafted by choosing the matching shade. The veneer is shaped and polished to match the specimen tooth and is harden using a curing light.
During an indirect method, an impression is obtained from the teeth that has to be covered and is sent to the lab for molding the veneers. We use CAD/CAM technology to fabricate the veneer and are bonded to the teeth using the matching shade of resin cement.
