Now, what's a Porcelain veneers?
Porcelain Veneers / Ceramic veneers are one of the most famous dental cosmetic procedures, resulting in a complete makeover for your smile. It’s a thin shell of ceramic that will be bonded to your teeth, after taking into consideration your facial appearance, skin, gum and even your hair colour to achieve the perfect HOLLYWOOD SMILE you always have dreamed of. It's like a fake fingernail that will hide all forms of imperfection underneath them.
What can those imperfections be?
Those imperfections which could be hidden using the Porcelain veneers are :
Discolored teeth : This can have a lot of reasons, it could be due to previously root canal treated tooth in which a greyish discolouration will be noticed or stains which have occurred due to taking certain medication's during the development of the permanent teeth which may vary from yellow or grey to a brown stain depending on the taken dose.
Another reason for teeth discolouration is the large intake of fluoride also during teeth development especially in the first eight years of life, this discolouration may vary according to the amount and period of intake. It may be white spots on the surface of the tooth in mild cases, and yellow to dark brown stains with irregular tooth surface in severe cases.
How are veneers made here?
Step One: Smile assessment:
Before starting with the preparation or starting to choose the colour of your veneers, a smile assessment should be done in order to understand what is right for you. At the best dental clinic in Dubai, our Cosmetic dentists will start the smile assessment with facial photographs (photographs of the face), in which later on will be used to assess your facial profile and shape. Also, taking your skin, hair and even eye colour when designing your smile. After those facial photographs intra-oral photographs will be taken, and here is the most sensitive part of this cosmetic procedure, in which the design of your veneers and smile will be set. We use a computer program to help us with this critical task, in which we could predict the results of your new smile, how will it look on you and alter both teeth and gum accordingly to achieve the perfect smile which will fit your facial profile.
Step Two: Trial smile period:
In this step, an impression is taken to create a study cast (study model) in which a mock-up smile will be created using wax. This mock-up smile is designed according to the predicted smile we had from the computer software, then a provisional veneer is made using composite or plastic according to the wax-up teeth. Here the patient can try to asses the smile himself and see what others think of it, and he could ask for any change and alteration to be made to his smile.
Step Three: Tooth Preparation and impression:
When the patient is satisfied with the smile, and he is convinced that this is the smile he deserves, we begin the tooth preparation process. Tooth preparation or grinding of the tooth in veneers is less aggressive in comparison with the crown preparation. The amount of tooth removed depends on the desired results and on the position of the tooth. After the completion of the tooth preparation, an accurate impression will be taken and will be sent to the lab to create the permanent veneers. Temporary veneer is made using acrylic material and placed to protect the teeth and prevent teeth sensitivity.
Step four: Creating the permanent veneer
This is the step of creating the permanent veneers which depend on the impression taken in step 3. The results and accuracy depend on the dental lab creating your veneers, so; we at the dental department at Dr Rami Hamed Center we deal with the best dental labs so that we could assure our patient's perfection.
Step five: Placement and cementation of the permanent veneers
Here is the end of the journey, the permanent veneers will be placed and bonded securely to your teeth, making it almost impossible to remove except for the use of laser or dental drills.
