What is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
- Assessment Phase: As is for all dental procedures, the first step is to diagnose the issue and plan a comprehensive treatment around it. This is the phase where x-rays and impressions of the candidate’s mouth are taken, if needed. Here the candidate and the dentist also decide if the procedure will require local anesthetics.
- Preparation: While preparing for a veneer, the dentist removes approximately ½ millimeter of the candidate’s enamel from the operation site. The custom dental veneers take 2-3 weeks to make. In the meanwhile, temporary veneers can be placed for teeth, in case they are severely affected.
- Bonding: The custom veneer is placed on the tooth to check for its size and color. When the veneer has been adjusted just right, the receiving tooth is cleaned and polished properly. This process roughens that tooth and also facilitates for a strong bonding process.
Bonding is done with the help of a special cement. To activate the special chemicals in this cement, a special light beam is applied. In the end, all the excess cement is removed and the candidate’s bite is evaluated. Following this, final adjustments, if needed, are made.
A study by Green CC, Sederstrom DA and colleagues states that porcelain veneers bonded to enamel were substantially stronger and more damage-resistant than when the porcelain veneers were bonded to dentin.1
It is advised to follow this procedure with an appointment for a quick check up. Periodic dental visits are always a good thing.
