Porcelain veneers and porcelain inlaysTeeth with disruptive discoloration, gaps, uneven or unsightly fillings can get help. Veneers or porcelain inlays can provide significant aesthetic improvements. Veneers are usually the incisors and porcelain inlays on the chewing teeth.
A veneer is a replacement for a damaged or discolored part of the enamel on the front of a tooth. It is usually made of porcelain and can be a substitute for a chipped a tooth. Using a facade can also broaden a tooth for filling a disturbing gap.
The dentist begins by removing any damaged enamel and shapes the tooth surface by lightly sanding. The aim is that the facade will cover such as a discoloration and be as thin as possible. A suitable color tested. An impression is taken and sent to a dental technician who produces the facade. After testing the facade can “weld” onto the tooth.
Porcelain inlays or ceramic posts made on teeth further into the mouth. They often replaces a larger caries damaged part of a tooth or large and unsightly fillings.
A porcelain inlays are very similar to a real tooth, both in shape and color. The insert can be with special methods made by the dentist himself, but usually produced in cooperation with a dental technician. The attachment of the post constitutes an important step and is carried out carefully with a special technique.
You will of course take care of their daily oral hygiene just as carefully as usual. Do not forget to clean between the teeth.
