Porcelain Veneers – Serving Plano TX, Richardson TX & the Surrounding Areas
This restoration involves just the front portion of the tooth. The veneer preparations are much less invasive than full crown preparations.
Approximately 0.5-1.0mm of tooth is removed in the preparation. In this case old discolored restorations were being replaced with porcelain laminate veneers.
Once the teeth are prepared, impressions are made as with conventional crowns. The porcelain laminate veneers are fabricated in the laboratory.
The veneers are bonded to the underlying tooth material. The bond between the veneer and tooth is the best of all dental restorations.
The old restoration must be removed entirely. The preparation is completed by removing 0.5 – 1.0 mm of tooth. It is possible to lengthen teeth by up to 2 mm using porcelain veneers.
Impressions are made of the preparations. Temporary restorations are placed while the veneers are being made in the laboratory.
The completed veneers accurately fit the stone model of the preparations.
The veneers are bonded to the underlying tooth material.
