Premium quality porcelain veneer
Our teeth can most often break if we bite into something that is harder than tooth enamel. Broken teeth should not only be treated from an aesthetic point of view, but also prevent them from causing problems with the underlying tooth root later on. One of the most common solutions for fixing a broken tooth is the placement of a dental veneer.
This thin, all-ceramic shell is custom made to fit the discolored or chipped tooth exactly and look exactly like the patient’s natural teeth.
We use this solution not only for broken teeth, but also in cases of extensive discolouration, unfavorable tooth shape or large gaps.
The process of making the porcelain veener
The preparation of the place of the veneers is done under local anesthesia, with minimal removal of the tooth surface. Of course, it cannot be neglected that the entire dental crown does not need to be sanded down for this!
After this, an impression is taken, and then, based on the impression, the dental technician prepares the veneers corresponding to the agreed tooth color. Until the final shell is completed, a temporary shell protects the teeth from discomfort caused by sensitivity.
The prepared shells are glued by the dentist to the prepared teeth, trying to minimize the chance of detachment.
A very beautiful, aesthetic solution, its color can be precisely matched to the color scheme of your own teeth. The achieved effect is long-lasting, the applied peel does not discolor.
Advantages of the porcelain veener
- completely metal-free and safe
- minimal intervention
- does not discolor over time
- durable and scratch resistant
- completely realistic
Is the treatment harmful to the teeth?
No. The dentist only removes the top enamel layer of the tooth under local anesthesia. There is no need for any intervention that affects the root or crown of the tooth.
What is the porcelain veneer for?
- covers the discolored tooth surface
- it restores the changes that result from the growth problem of the enamel
- helps to correct the length of the tooth
- covers the gap between the incisors
- gives the tooth the desired whiteness
- restores the crown with an uneven surface
When do we offer another solution?
Unfortunately, veneers cannot be used for very untidy, tangled and worn teeth or for people who grind or snap their teeth. In such cases, the dentist places dental crowns (zirconium or porcelain crowns), which provide a more durable, stronger solution.
