Dental veneers in islamabad are basically custom made, thin porcelain shells. Materials used by our dentists for dental veneers are imported from germany. Materials imported from the states tend to last long and follow the protocol’s given by ADA and CDC. Patients visiting us wants a change in appearence of their teeth. Yes! Appearence!. Size, shape, color etc all comes under the catagory of appearence. When someone has, yellow, stained, discoloured teeth, it may compromise their self-esteem.
What are dental veneers
Porcelain is used to make dental veneers. To explain it better to you, veneers are basically thin custom made sheets of porcelain that can be placed on one or multiple teeth. Veneers are bonded and placed on the front side of teeth thus changing the color, size, shape and length of teeth.
Veneers can either made of composite/porcelain. However, our dental surgeons tend to prefer porcelain over composite due to the fact that porcelain is much stronger and durable than composite. Porcelain veneers tend to resist stains better than composite. Furthermore, porcelain mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth thus giving a natural appearence and feel.
The how of dental veneers
We tend to consider veneers as having multiple layers of porcelain and an adhesive film that is placed by our dentists to keep it into place. To apply a veneer, we tend to remove a small amount of enamel which is usually less than a millimter.
We consider the bonding step of dental veneers to be of prime importance as this is a requirement for the proper function. Light sensitive adhesive layer is applied between the tooth and the veneer to hold it into place.
Where can veneers be used?
- Teeth that are discolored – either because of a root canal or by stains caused by tea coffee and food.
- Stains from many drugs can cause heavy staining on teeth. Veneers have the capability of hiding these aweful stains.
- Excessive fluroide intake during childhood can cause brown stains which are permanent.
- Teeth that are worn down such as in old age or in clenchers.
- Broken/chipped of teeth.
- Teeth that have gaps in them. This can be covered by veneers.
Procedure of dental veneers in islamabad
Dental veneers reuqire atleast two to three visits at Z Dental Studio. One for a consultation and briefing and the 2nd/3rd visit to make and bond veneers. One or many teeth can undergo the procedure of dental veneers. We follow the following procedure
Diagnosis And Treatment Plan.
This part involves the patient about briefing us what kind of treatment he/she is looking for and what results can be expected from us. Explaining to us what kind of results you are looking for is of prime importance. During your first visit, our dentists will have a detailed conversation and examination of your teeth. There are some limitations to veneers, however, these will be told by us before we start the procedure. We’ll take necessary X-rays and most probably we’ll record an impression of your jaw.
To prepare a veneer we will have to remove 1/2 millimiter of the enamel of your teeth. This is to accomodate the prosthesis. We will take necessary precautions so that you don’t feel any sort of pain during the procedure. Once we’ve accomplished the necessary space required we will record another impression of the jaw. The impression taken by us will then be sent to the dental lab and on which the veneers will be made. Our Dental Labs usually take 5-7 days to make these veneers, however during that time we provide temporary restorations so that you feel comfortable during that time.
Attachment of veneers.
Before permanently placing veneers, we will temporarily place it and check the fit of the finished product. Most importanly we will ask you if you like the shade and shape of the finished product. If the size is inappropriate our dentists will trim down a bit of porcelain to make it a good fit for your teeth. Next, before we permanently bond the veneers, we wil clean, polish and etch your teeth. Ethcing makes your tooth surface a bit rough which increases the longetivity of veneers. We will apply a cement on the veneer and finally place it on your teeth. Once properly positioned on your tooth/teeth, we will apply a light beam on the veneer, this activates chemicals inside the cement causing it to harden quickly. We then remove any extra cement, make necessary final adjustments and then the treatment is complete.
