How Porcelain veneers is done?
If we look closely at the stages of porcelain veneers, we see that the first stage begins with the surfaces of the teeth undergoing a deep cleaning. Your dentist begins treatment to wipe a thin layer of plaque from the top of the teeth, which will be treated. This layer of plaque may differ according to the personal needs of the patient and what kind of porcelain veneer to make. In the absence of any extra problems, the amount of layer taken as standard varies from 0.5 or 0.7 millimeters. However, in most cases, this procedure is so short and simple that it does not even require any anesthesia.
After the first stage is completed, it is time to get images of the teeth that will be covered with porcelain teeth. Your dentist can do this in the traditional way by taking mold from your teeth, as well as by using CEREC technology in a three-dimensional way. Images obtained from the mold or through CEREC are sent to laboratories specializing in this subject and it is requested to start the production of porcelain teeth according to the desired dimensions.
The arrival of the desired veneer teeth can usually take up to 2 weeks. In order to avoid damage to your teeth, the outer layer of which has been removed during this time, your dentist can give you short-term porcelain tooth veneers for temporary use. After the arrival of permanent porcelain teeth, the third stage, that is, the placement of porcelain tooth coverings, is passed. Porcelain veneers, which are placed individually using a special porcelain veneer tooth glue, can be rasped and reshaped where necessary. After this stage is completed, the porcelain tooth veneer process is terminated.
