¿What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain made in a dental laboratory, which are used to recreate the natural appearance of the teeth and restore or repair fractured or worn tooth surfaces. Porcelain veneers are able to change the shape of your teeth, colour and position.

It is an aesthetics dental treatment minimally invasive. As sheets are placed on the tooth enamel, the original position of the teeth should not be changed much. In addition, they fit perfectly to the tooth structure, a fact that allows you to talk, eat and drink normally. Porcelain veneers have a long life. They can wear and even break, but is unusual in a short time. Depending on the treatment and care it receive will last more or less time. The colour, brightness and appearance of the teeth are not changed over the years. Other treatments, however, are not capable of maintaining dental aesthetics for so long.

ADVANTAGE

Conservative tooth preparation.

It can be made without preparing the tooth depending on the clinical case.

High aesthetics.

Resistant.

Colour stability.

Easy maintenance.

INDICATIONS

Discolouration.

Need to improve the shape of the teeth.

Need to improve mild bad tooth positions (Not orthodontic veneers done).

Restore or repair broken or worn tooth surfaces when on neighbouring teeth there is the need for crowns space closure.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Very important discolouration.

Inadequate habits (biting pencils, nails, etc.).

Poor hygiene.

High rate of decay.

POSSIBLE INDICATIONS

Fracture of ceramics.

Gingival problems.

Subsequent colour change cementation.

Debonding.

MANUFACTURING

To manufacture requires two to three appointments

1 Appointment for performing provisional (when required)

2 Appointment making final impression

3 Appointment cementation

At times it requires a fourth appointment, this is done when was necessary to request the lab an adjustment

LIMITATIONS
