Porcelain veneer

DESCRIPTION

Dental veneers or most of the time called porcelain veneer, are a thin layer, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth surface and made of tooth-colored materials, and specially designed to change your appearance. With Porcelain Veneer, our dentist is able to change their color, shape, size, or length of your original teeth. Porcelain veneers made from porcelain which normally called Lithium disilicate or with a popular brand name EMAX. Porcelain veneers able to resist against stain that normally appear on the surface of normal tooth that can change the tooth color. Litium disilicate material also have more of the light-reflecting features of natural teeth. Enamel removal from your teeth is still needed in order to make room for veneer and custom-fit the veneers to the tooth. The enamel removal also makes the surface of your teeth rough and helps keep the veneers in place.

TREATMENT TIME FRAME

Consist of 3 to 4 appointment in between, with 5 to 8 days production time in the dental laboratory depend on how many veneer that you need.

  • 1st appointment or day 1 – For consultation or if possible our dentist will do the preparation/grinding your tooth directly and create an impression/mold for our Lab to create the veneer. You will have temporary before leaving the clinic.
  • 2nd appointment or day 6/10 – For fitting the veneer. Our dentist will check the fitting of your new veneer on top of your tooth, check contact between each tooth, check color and shape to make sure it has the same color as the other tooth or as we plan in the beginning. Once the checking process is over, and you satisfied with the result our dentist will glue the veneer permanently, if not, then our dentist will send the veneer back to the lab for correction, and you will need to come back again next appointment (normally Lab will need 1 or 2 days for correction)
  • 3rd appointment is for follow up process once the crown has been glued on your tooth. Our dentist will need to do further bite check to make sure the bite is not too high, and further cleaning from excess glue.
