Dentistry aims at not only helping you maintain a healthy mouth, but also a beautiful smile. We use many types of dental restorations for this purpose, among which porcelain veneers are quite prominent. They are wafer-thin pieces of ceramic that are bonded on to the frontal surface of the teeth. Thereby, they can be used to restore teeth that are worn out, cracked, broken, discolored, excessively spaced, etc.
During the initial consultation, the dentist will conduct a thorough screening process to understand the condition of your tooth. Next, the dentist determines your candidacy for the veneer. The procedure starts by thoroughly cleaning the tooth and removing a thin layer of enamel from it. In order to do this, the dentist will grind or buff the tooth gently. A digital scan will be taken to get a mold of the tooth. It serves as a reference for fabricating the veneer in the dental laboratory.
Once the veneer is fabricated, the dentist will prepare your tooth for bonding the veneer. It is cleaned and etched using an etching solution. Next, the dentist bonds the veneer to the tooth using a dental adhesive that is photosensitive. Meaning, a curing light can be used to activate it, after which it hardens. The dentist checks the veneer for fit and comfort by conducting a bite test, after which it may be polished to give it just the right aesthetics.
