Porcelain veneer is a process that is gaining popularity in recent years. While initially it was an expensive process, thanks to the advancing technology it is now a process most people can choose.
Types of porcelain veneer:
- bridge veneers
- full veneers
- implant mounted veneers
- metal supported veneers,
- leaf porcelain veneers
- zirconium supported teeth veneers
Leaf veneers are quite preferred when it comes to smile design. Leaf veneers require the scratching of tooth enamel, so that the veneers can better attach to the tooth. This type of veneer must be maintained with utmost care, otherwise it would cause bad breath and lesions in the mouth.
Generally known as porcelain veneers, these prostheses are utilized to replace a natural tooth lost for various reasons or to remedy an aesthetic defect in the mouth. Artificial teeth are made to provide patients who have lost their original teeth in order to help them regain their full speech and chewing functions. This is the first operation performed on teeth that have decayed or damaged beyond repair. While building a porcelain veneer, the main goal is to make a tooth that is closer to the natural original, compatible with the patient’s face, that would help with the proper chewing and speech functions and would last for a long time. This process is performed following precise measurements to ensure that the artificially made tooth would fit in with the rest of the teeth and completed automatically and hygienically, without manual contact, in order to keep dental and gum health and to provide a porcelain veneer that will last for a very long time.
