Perfect smile with dental veneers
“We will never know how well a simple smile can do.”
The smile is the innate way in which we interact positively with the world and with people. This is why we care so much for your smile and want you to not be embarrassed or self-conscious when smiling.
After all, there are not many things in this life more important than a smile – natural, healthy, confident and beautiful.
The harmony of the smile involves all the aesthetics of the face and has psychological implications that cannot be overlooked.
For this reason, when the smile is redrawn, one cannot think of starting dental chair sessions without an accurate diagnosis and detailed treatment planning.
The patient is involved in his “smile design” with his concerns, doubts and questions but also it will be tailored to his needs and expectations.
Mockup and application of dental veneers
From the digital design, the mock-up is obtained- a simulation of the smile that is placed on the teeth so that the patient can see, discuss, and eventually request changes. The patient then consciously accepts the treatment proposal, becoming aware of unexpected and eventual potential technical-clinical limits.
A dentist who offers cosmetic dentistry will be a therapy guide and patient counselor.
At this point the mock-up (simulation) created by the design and shared with the patient will become a guide for dental preparations, which are no longer aggressive tooth fillings but minimally invasive preparations or touch-ups, often only in the thickness of the enamel.
The new ceramic materials can withstand the forces of mastication and cover the discolored structures of the teeth, even at thicknesses comparable to those of a contact lens.
This is how dental veneers are born, shell coatings that are applied to the minimally prepared tooth and sometimes not prepared at all. Veneers are able to change the shape, color and often also the position of the teeth.
Great lasting results
There are so many indications for the dental veneers, they are often used to change the visibility of the smile when teeth are short or abraded, to close diastemas if the teeth are too small, to change the shape of the teeth in association with orthodontic therapies, and to correct dental discoloration not correctable with bleaching or conservative therapies.
How long do the veneers last? Do the veneers come off or break? The new adhesive cementation techniques, performed under the insulation of a rubber sheet called a dental dam, make detachments impossible because teeth and veneers after bonding become one, resisting over time the stresses of chewing. The cements are available in various colors and with different opacities to harmonize and make the restoration disappear within the smile.
The ceramics are materials of choice for color stability over time and there is no risk of discolouration.
Obviously it is important that the patient turns to a team of dentists who have the utmost attention to detail and the utmost precision, a team made up of trained and up to date sector specialists.
