Receive Porcelain Veneers In Just A Single Appointment
Posted on 5/9/2022 by Dr. Castellon
Porcelain veneers provide an effective cosmetic cover-up for issues such as small chips and pit. Dentists also use them to change the shape and look of a misshapen tooth. When you have tooth staining that goes beyond the outer enamel layer, bleaching or whitening cannot restore it. A dentist can use porcelain veneers to cover the stains occurring deeper in the layer beneath the enamel. Porcelain veneers come in the form of thin porcelain shells and are intended to be placed in front teeth to address various imperfections.
The CEREC System
CEREC is a short form for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a system that utilizes 3D imaging software to aid a dentist in inputting various measurements of a patient's teeth into the system. A dentist can design the prosthetic right on-screen instantly. If you are happy with the look and design of the prosthetic, the dentist sends the data to their milling station for the fabrication of the prosthetic. The CEREC 3D Design and Milling System takes a piece of medical-grade porcelain whereby it mills the prosthetic. As a result, the CEREC 3D Design and Milling System allows a dentist to diagnose, design, as well as place the prosthetic in just a single appointment.
Some dentists utilize a porcelain veneers placement process that takes several weeks with several appointments. During the first appointment, the dentist checks the teeth and takes impressions. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication of an onlay, inlay, veneer, or crown. The patient has to get temporary veneers to cover the teeth during the interim period. The patients will then return for another appointment where they receive the finished prosthetic. If you are seeking veneers, ask if you can have the same-day placement or you have to make several appointments. Contact us to find out how we offer our veneer placement procedures.
