Porcelain Veneers

A considerable number of patients visiting a cosmetic dentistry clinics complain about the unsightly appearance of their teeth. Unaesthetic looks of teeth can result from many factors including extrinsic or intrinsic staining and discoloration, wearing of teeth, aging and chipping of teeth, developmental anomalies and inherited disorders. Extrinsic discolorations on the surface of teeth can be easily removed with the help of dental prophylaxis and scaling procedures. Hard extrinsic stains and some intrinsic stains are prone to removal resulting in better facial appearance of teeth owing to teeth bleaching and whitening techniques. However, tooth surface irregularities and deep internal stains require more aggressive treatment regimens to get desired results. In the past, dental crown prosthesis was used for such cases which include vigorous removal of sound tooth structure in order to create the required space. Front porcelain veneer teethModern cosmetic dentistry believes in the concept of minimal intervention in all cases. Dr. Sandhya Anantuni and her team of cosmetic dental professionals at Anantuni Family Dental in Chandler Arizona perform conservative treatments options such as use porcelain veneers in worn, chipped, deeply stained, mal-aligned and aged teeth.

Porcelain veneers are the conservative cosmetic dental prosthesis which is custom fabricated in the dental laboratory with the help of tooth-colored materials. This thin shell-like prosthesis is constructed in order to cover the front surfaces of the teeth to mask the ugly appearance. Porcelain veneers function to laminate the tooth surfaces. Unlike composite veneers which can be directly placed on the teeth or fabricated indirectly, porcelain veneers can only be constructed indirectly in the dental laboratory. Porcelain veneers are more stable as compared to composite veneers and have greater strength. Soft tissues around the teeth and gums tolerate porcelain much better when compared to composite veneers. These do not require frequent replacement as is the case with composite veneers. The esthetic quality of porcelain veneers is also better as these are resistant to staining. Various functional and esthetic reasons for the placement of porcelain veneers are,

Compromised looks of front teeth due to staining and discoloration,
Mali-aligned, poorly shaped or crooked front teeth,
Deeply stained front teeth due to medication use,
Spaces between the front teeth can be masked through porcelain veneers,
Visible white discoloration of teeth due to less mineralization,
Fractures and cracks of teeth,
Wearing of teeth due to aging and other factors,
Developmentally abnormal teeth such as peg lateral incisors.

Dental professionals at Anantuni Family Dental carry out a thorough assessment of the discolored or abnormal teeth before suggesting porcelain veneer placement. Complete history and examination procedures are undertaken followed by informed consent. It is evaluated whether teeth require some form of tooth preparation before taking impression of the teeth. Often no or minimal tooth preparation is required in these cases maximizing conservation of sound tooth structure. However, in certain cases it may lead to over contouring of restorations and tooth preparation is advised. An impression is taken and sent to the dental laboratory with specific instructions. State of the art fabricated porcelain veneers are checked in the patient’s mouth on the next visit. After satisfaction of both our dentist at Anantuni Family Dental and the patient, the prosthesis is cemented on the teeth. It is advised to clean the veneer just like normal teeth and avoid biting hard objects with it.
