Cosmetic dentist Dr. Desiree Yazdan walked us through the process of creating and installing tooth veneers and crowns. Veneers can fix severe discoloration, repair jagged or chipped teeth, and fill gaps. She emphasizes that veneers still require the same care and upkeep regular teeth need. This process proved fun for the patient and make them healthier, happier and more confident. A crown fully covers to tooth to protect an implant or weakened tooth.
In the process of tooth plantation, he takes an impression of the patient’s teeth. Then, she makes temporaries to test for fit and comfort. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth. Two weeks later, she replaces them with permanent veeners and crown.
An acid etch dissolves a thin layer of enamel that makes space for the veener to fit over the tooth. Next, she prepares the tooth with the bonding agent. Then, cements the veener to the tooth and cures it with a light.
This is the most comfortable procedure that allows patients to fall asleep in the dental chair during the whole process.
Veeners are not the free pass to get out of a proper dental care. They require regular cleanings, exams and proper brushing and flossing just like regular teeth. Tooth veeners are usually irreversible, so it is important to consult a doctor you trust.
