What is porcelain veneer?
Veneer is a thin porcelain or porcelain veneer that is glued onto the outside of the tooth for the purpose of changing the shape, size and color of the teeth, giving a new look to the smile.
The most special thing is the technique of cosmetic restoration has advantages compared with traditional dental aesthetic techniques that are preserved and do not affect too much to the real teeth.
Advantages of the porcelain veneer technique
1. Little affect on real teeth
Technology: Veneer porcelain is a suitable method for teeth, mildly deviated teeth, chipped teeth, glaucoma, toothed fluoride or tooth colored teeth due to antibiotics. Veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made by pressing techniques or automated production with the help of computer. At present, the thickness of the porcelain face is significantly improved from 0.5 to 0.6 mm, even can make porcelain face with a thickness of 0.3 mm.
No effect on teeth: Thus, compared to traditional bridges, porcelain Veneer has many advantages. Dental porcelain veneer teeth are very small, just 0.5mm on average is sufficient, while classical techniques must grind to 1.2mm tooth tissue.Consequently, the real teeth are preserved. The entire face and side of the tooth is not damaged.
Tooth pulp is also preserved: 100% of cases do not require veneer treatment of pulp. The level of sensitivity of the teeth after grinding is also much less than when the crown.On the other hand, compared to Composite, porcelain veneer provides better color, gloss, less discoloration, less abrasion and higher durability. When making Veneer porcelain teeth, it hardly changes the contact of the teeth on the jaw between the upper and lower jaw, so there is no disturbance in the bite to help patients feel comfortable eating chewing gum.Thus, porcelain veneer changes the shape, size and color of the teeth, improving aesthetic smile but not destroy the structure of the real teeth.

2. Follow aesthetic procedures in a subtle way
Delicate aesthetic feel: Veneer porcelain face is a kind of aesthetic dental restoration in the trend of minimal intervention, minimally invasive, minimizing the damage to the teeth.Therefore, all operations from grinding, marking, pouring of samples to the joints, fabrication to the surface of porcelain veneer must be strictly followed in order to achieve accuracy. Therefore, in order to have a beautiful and quality veneer porcelain, the physician must have a high level of technical skill.
Highly skilled physician: With Veneer porcelain, the doctor plays an important role rather than the material.The beautiful smile is the harmony of three elements: teeth, gums and lips in a unified form of face, skin as well as age, sex and personality of the patient rather than simply replace teeth as old.The harmonious combination of these factors along with the appropriate dental treatment indications of the new doctor can produce the desired results.
Before and after Veneer porcelain
The porcelain veneer procedure conforms to international standards
The porcelain veneer procedure conforms to international standards will be carried out in accordance with international standards, ensuring safety and effectiveness for patients at Nhan Tam dental clinic.
Step 1: Examination, radiography, and consultation
The teeth will be examined and x-ray film will be taken by using the CT ConeBeam 3D system to assess the general condition of the oral health so that the doctor will offer the most suitable treatment.
Step 2: Teeth cleanning
The doctor will remove a tartar and check general dental for the patient before getting veneers.
Step 3: The shape creation and the sample progress
The teeth will be trimmed in accordance with the prescribed rate to minimize invasive teeth. After that, patients will be taken with 3shape 3D software with accurate data.
Step 4: Pocerlain veneer making
The dental data will be transferred to Laboratory for simulations on 3D CAD / CAM software and then the teeth are produced.
Step 5: Try-in of veneers
Your dentist will choose cement that they feel will provide the best color match. And then place some of that cement's corresponding "trial paste" into the veneer. (Trial pastes have the same color properties as their corresponding cement but don't create a bond with the tooth. They're just for testing purposes.)
The veneer can now be placed on your tooth so you and your dentist can evaluate how its color will look. If it's not a good match, your dentist can repeat this same evaluation using other shades of trial pastes, until the right color cement is found.
Step 6: Bonding the veneers
They'll etch the surface of your tooth with an acid etching gel for about 15 to 20 seconds. After washing the etching gel off your tooth and drying it, your dentist will apply a layer of clear "bonding agent."
Cement is then placed inside the veneer, which is then squished into place. Once it's been positioned properly, your dentist will set the cement by way of shining a "curing" light on your tooth. This light activates a catalyst in the bonding agent and cement, causing them to set in about a minute.
Step 7: Wrapping things up.
The veneer is now securely attached to your tooth. There will be some excess cement that your dentist will need scrape and floss away. They will also need to evaluate your new restoration's contours and trim and polish them as is needed. As the last step, your bite will be evaluated so to confirm that it hasn't been altered by the placement of your veneer.
Step 8: Complete treatment and home care instructions
After completion of the dental procedure, the doctor will schedule a follow-up visit (if required) and provide proper dental care at home so that porcelain veneers are durable and maintain a long life expectancy.
