At OrtoVena we strive for excellent aesthetic results that enhance the beauty of your face and your smile.
Malocclusions, due to incorrect relationship of the teeth and jaw, often cause problems with tooth surfaces, including breaking or crumbling. These can be caused by damaging habits that the patient may have, which are related to gnashing of teeth (bruxism), clamping jaws, biting nails, etc. As a result, despite successful orthodontic treatment the patient’s have either an abnormal structure and size, or their color does not match the overall aesthetics of the face.
So the ideal way to solve the above mentioned problems are veneers.
A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth’s surface from damage. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed in the mouth, or fabricated by a dental technician in a lab, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated. A full veneer crown is described as “a restoration that covers all the coronal tooth surfaces (Mesial, Distal, Facial, Lingual and Occlusal)”. Laminate veneer, on other hand, is a thin layer that covers only the surface of the tooth and is generally used for aesthetic purposes.
At OrtoVena we use of veneers to improve not only the smiles, but the well-being of our patients.
At OrtoVena placement of composite veneers takes place during one visit. In the case of ceramic veneers, it is necessary to have two visits. This is because of the fact that on the first visit, your dentist must prepare the surface of the tooth on which the veneer will be placed, and then download the impression of teeth for the dental laboratory which will prepare the appropriate veneer. Betweens visits, the dentist applies a temporary facing on the teeth. On the next visit the dentist applies permanent cementing of veneers to the natural tooth. Veneer treatment is completely painless.
