Ceramic Veneer & Crowns
Dental veneers and crowns are thin shells of porcelain or ceramic laminates, which are wafer-thin and custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front of the teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. These shells are fixed to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
- Proper examination of the teeth is done to find appropriate dental veneers for you.
- Reshaping the tooth surface and make a model of your tooth.
- Temporary placement of dental veneers on your teeth will be done to examine its fit and color.
- A special cement will be appropriately filled and a special light beam is applied, which activates chemicals in the cement during the final adjustments.
- They can be used to fix stained, chipped, misaligned, worn down and abnormally spaced teeth.
- Porcelain veneers are well tolerated and stain-resistant.
The two most common materials used in dental veneers and crowns are composite resin and porcelain. These types of veneers and crowns can be fabricated by a dental technician in a laboratory and are bonded to the patient’s teeth in a dentist’s office. Your dentist can also complete the procedure in a single office visit using CAD/CAM technology where he or she develops it while you are in the dental chair.
