Dental porcelains are used to create replicas of natural looking teeth for both veneers and crown fabrication. Although they share similar visual characteristics with natural teeth, one technique will be more suitable than the other, depending on the situation.
To strengthen a badly broken down or weakened tooth,
Worn or fractured teeth can be restored to their original contour.
Spaces can be filled and a more regular appearance restored or created.
To improve the appearance of a badly broken down or heavily filled tooth,
Highly discoloured and stained teeth can be improved,
Poorly positioned teeth can be built forward.
To support the end/s of a bridge which is replacing other missing teeth
To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed, usually less than a millimeter. This is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth.
The bond between original tooth and porcelain veneer is critical as it not only provides the esthetic perfection desired, but also a strong bond which is essential for correct veneer function. Light-sensitive resin is placed between the original tooth and the veneer and then hardened using a special curing light.
