How do you do composite veneers?
After examining and establishing a treatment plan approved by the patient, the color of the future direct restoration is chosen. The work area is isolated from the oral cavity, in order not to allow the penetration of liquids that can affect the quality of the work. The doctor applies the nano or microhybrid composite material, in layers, until the desired shape and color is obtained.
Are composite veeners a good choice?
We only work with high-performance, verified materials, such as: Esthet-X, Denstply, Clearfil, AP-X Esthetics, Kuraray. The team's experience in direct restorations plays a decisive role in achieving an aesthetic, successful and sustainable result.
What are the pros and cons of composite veneers?
Composite veneers are made in a maximum of 2-3 visits, depending on the workload. After a few days from the end of the treatment, a correction of the work can be made. If cracks appear over time, they can be easily repaired. Moreover, they are easily subjected not only to repair but also to subsequent replacement or cleaning. For composite veneers, we use composite material, which, in large volume, can be fractured, so the massive destruction of the dental crown will not be restored by this method.
Is it worth getting porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veeners are the best choice in the following cases: - Teeth change color - Interdental spaces - Dental crowding - Teeth with unsightly fillings - Small teeth due to abrasion - Teeth with unsatisfactory shape and size.
What is the process for porcelain veneers?
Initially, the patient is examined to assess the health of the oral cavity and the appearance of the smile. A set of photos is taken to understand the ratio of the teeth to the lips and how they harmonize with the patient's face. At this stage, it is important to understand what the starting point is and what outcome the patient wants. Subsequently, a temporary wax model is made to mimic the final result and the patient can wear it for a few days, to test both the new aesthetic appearance and its functionality. After accepting the design, the impression is made for making porcelain veneers.
What kind of porcelain do you use for making veneers?
We use the latest existing materials to make dental veneers. If it is necessary to change the color and the tooth is not severely damaged, we use full porcelain - pure porcelain. It offers natural transparency to the facet and a superior aesthetic.
If it is necessary to mask a tooth that has changed color, or that presents the risk of fracture of the veneer, it is made of pressed porcelain, which combines aesthetics and hardness similar to natural tooth.
Do porcelain veneers ruin your teeth?
Not all situations require grinding. If the tooth is straight and only the color change is necessary, the grinding will be minimal or completely missing.
In some situations, the teeth are positioned too far forward, so grinding them can return them to their normal position.
What happens to your own teeth when you get porcelain veneers?
The patient does not leave the clinic with ground teeth. In order to follow the normal rhythm of life, he will wear a temporary model of the future facets, which will correspond to the necessary functions. Moreover, the temporary model favors the accommodation of the patient with the future dental veneers.
What are the limitations of porcelain veneers?
There are some extreme situations, such as severe crowding, large interdental spaces, lack of teeth, traumatic dental occlusions for which veneers are not the most recommended solution.
If the veneer has been fractured due to a blow, it cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced.
