Porcelain Veneers

‘Do you have teeth with gaps between them, dark, crooked, with many fillings?’,
‘Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile?’,  
‘Are your teeth too big or too small, too sparse or your gums are showing too much?’.

With the Porcelain Veneers you can fix all these problems, simply by intervening to the front surface of the teeth.

Porcelain Veneers are very thin porcelain layers, manufactured by the dental technician; they are bonded to the teeth and have duration of 15-20 years.   They are considered to be a conservative treatment that transforms the smile, since the fabrication of the tooth is restricted on the front surface. In order to obtain them, 3 visits during one week are demanded.

The whole process is totally customized using an electronic plan of treatment and has to be completed by a specialist and a lab that specializes in fabricating porcelain veneers.

Now you can have the smile you like!

 

 

Process of applying Porcelain Veneers

Before analyzing the process of applying Porcelain Veneers, we should point out that our primary concern is to determine what is right for you.
The dentist, who has been specialized and has the required experience on porcelain veneers, can give you many solutions to obtain literally a new Hollywood smile.

First Stage

Initially, the dentist records your desires and expectations of the application of porcelain veneers, as well as the specificities of your teeth, face and skin.

Afterwards, by using a specialized program called imagination, the dentist gives accurately his opinion about your case, using all the above information.

Also, all these special information about your teeth and the desired result, are recorded on special mock ups manufactured by a special dental impression that the dentist takes, in order to obtain an even better optical result of before and after treatment.

Second stage-clinical stage


The patient arrives at the dentist office and the preparation of the teeth that will receive porcelain veneers is done. Given the fact that porcelain veneers have the thickness of a contact lens, filing of the teeth is immeasurably small or in some cases, where it is permitted, nonexistent.

At this point we have to emphasize that all actions of Cosmetic Dentistry are painless whereas the patient leaves feeling relieved having a special temporary tooth even if his own teeth are filed down.

After preparation, the dentist proceeds on the extensive impression of the patient’s teeth so that the specialized dentist technician has a detailed image of the manufactured teeth and mouth in general.

Every mouth has its personality. The shape of the mouth varies from person to person; hence the dentist is obliged to try maintaining the elements of the personality of the patient’s teeth to his new smile.

Teeth lacking anatomic elements (cusps or transparency) that natural teeth have, is considered to be unsuccessful from the cosmetic dentist.

Teeth that will be restored using porcelain veneers, have to follow the shape of the lips in order to emphasize the characteristics of the patient’s face, creating a harmonic unit.

Also, teeth that have suffered aponeurosis are also being repaired by filing them down at the minimum, whereas under different conditions these teeth would have been filed down a lot further. During the whole process of creating a beautiful smile using porcelain veneers, the shape of the gums is also important. Therefore, sometimes gum therapy by using gum line Laser is also necessary.

After the impression, the dentist uses the transparent tablet that was described above and has the shape of the teeth we want to achieve and creates inside the patient’s mouth, temporary veneers of acrylic resin that look totally natural. These temporary veneers are bonded by using temporary glue on the reconstructed teeth and after a few days the specialized technician prepares the final porcelain veneers. The dentist tests the veneers on the patient’s teeth and if everything is correct and the patient is satisfied with the result, the dentist bonds the porcelain veneers to the patient’s teeth.

Advantages of Porcelain Veneers


1.  They have the exact same clarity with the adamantine, so that their permeability to light is similar to the natural teeth.

2. Porcelain veneers have the thickness of a contact lens; therefore the teeth are filed down at the minimum.

3. Porcelain veneers have excellent adhesion to the gums; hence the teeth look like they are adjusted perfectly like the natural ones.  

4. Porcelain Veneers protect absolutely natural teeth from sensitivities, irritations and mechanical deteriorations. Even a crooked tooth doesn’t have to be filed down, in contrast to the conventional restoration of the tooth. So, the dental substance is being kept and we avoid further injury.  

5. The bonding of Porcelain Veneers is carried out using an evolutionary dental substance which is strongly united to the tooth so that it will not be detached from it. Moreover, modern Porcelain Veneers are fabricated by a specialized laboratory that uses the double-pressing technique.

From the above mentioned, we can understand why Porcelain Veneers are the best choice for people in the star system. Most smiles we see on T.V. and magazines have been created by using Porcelain Veneers. It is typical that before Oscar’s ceremony, Hollywood stars change their Porcelain Veneers to other brighter ones, so that they can appear on the red carpet with a brighter smile.
