Individualised Ceramic Veneers For An Ideal Smile

Custom Ceramic Veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that can be used to improve the appearance of damaged, stained, cracked, chipped, crooked and unsightly teeth. The particular tooth/teeth to be treated are prepared by the dentist and a tooth and jaw impression/scan is taken. The impression/scan of the prepared teeth are then sent to the dental laboratory where the specialist dental ceramist custom makes the veneers. Provisional or temporary veneers are then fabricated by the dentist and temporarily cemented to the prepared tooth/teeth to be worn until the permanent ceramic veneers are ready. Occassionally it is necessary for the patient to visit the dental laboratory so that the ceramist can observe other important patient features such as skin tone, eye colour, face and body shape etc. all important factors that are taken into consideration when designing and fabricating the veneers.

When the patient returns to the dental clinic, the provisional veneers are removed, the teeth cleaned and the ceramic veneer(s) tried in. If both the dentist and patient are satisfied with the appearance, the ceramic veneers are bonded to the tooth surface using special bonding agents. Excess bonding material is cleaned away and the bite checked. It may be necessary to perform a few minor adjustments to the way your teeth meet (occlusion) to reduce pressure from opposing teeth and ‘even out’ the bite. The great thing about ceramic veneers is that they can be made to look perfectly natural and are unlikely to stain or discolour like a natural tooth. If well cared for, ceramic veneers can last a lifetime.

It is important when assessing a tooth for a Veneer, enough enamel must exists on the tooth surface for a strong bond and to prevent staining at the margin (join).
