Dental and porcelain veneers abroad, in Prague

If you suffer from unsightly spaces between teeth, wrong teeth colour or position, multiple fillings in the anterior teeth, you can use one of the most modern solutions – application of dental porcelain veneers to the front of your teeth.

What are dental porcelain veneers?

Dental porcelain veneers are thin porcelain layers, which are stuck directly to the front of the teeth. During a normal treatment, six porcelain veneers (it can be even more) are stuck to incisor and canine teeth of the upper and lower jaw. If your teeth are healthy, two visits are sufficient to apply the veneers. At first the doctor grinds the teeth slightly under local anesthesia and makes an impression of client’s teeth. During the next appointment, the doctor sticks the finished veneers on the teeth.

Are you a suitable candidate for dental porcelain veneers?

fazkyWith the help of dental porcelain veneers, it is possible for example to remove unsightly spaces between anterior teeth, wrong teeth colour or position or anomalies in location of anterior teeth.

If you suffer from any of these problems, you can be a suitable candidate for dental porcelain veneers.

Before the application

During the first consultation, talk to the doctor about your ideas concerning the look of your teeth. It is important for him/her to understand what you see as the biggest problem. The doctor will also choose, together with you, the right colour tone for your veneers. Before the treatment, he/she will probably ask you about your general state of health, especially whether you suffer from allergy to some medicaments or anaesthetics, for example Mesocain, Lidocain etc..

Anesthesia

The treatment is very gentle and is not accompanied by any pain. Slight teeth grinding and application of the veneers is performed under local anaesthesia, which ensures you a painless treatment.

The application procedure of dental porcelain veneers

If your teeth are healthy, the application of the veneers is done in two phases. First, the dentist grinds the teeth slightly (maximum 0,4 mm) and takes the impression of the teeth. Then he/she will send this impression to the dental laboratory where they will create the veneers. The laboratory manufacturing of veneers usually takes 10 days, for this time you can use temporary veneers usually made of composite resin (a material from which “white fillings” are made). The final veneers will be checked during the second visit and if the functional or aesthetic problems will not come up, they can be permanently stuck. The veneers are polished after the application to make the new look of your teeth perfect.

Present technology (CEREC restorative technique) offers the whole procedure in one visit – the creation of electronic impression of the teeth, modelling of the veneers on the computer and the creation of final work and adhesion

After the treatment

The dentist or dental hygienist will teach you perfect mouth hygiene. It is necessary to be careful while biting at very hard pieces of food.

The life span of porcelain veneers however depends also on care of the teeth and gingiva, on quality of natural teeth and client’s manipulation with the veneers.
