Cheema Dental offers porcelain veneers (known as Lumineers™ by Cerinate®). What are Lumineers? It is a new and increasingly popular aesthetic solution for patients with several cosmetic problems, such as stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth – even old crowns and bridgework. The procedure is a painless way to reshape and permanently whiten your entire smile. No-prep, veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that cover your teeth, along with any apparent flaws. Veneers are custom-made to fit your mouth, and each veneer is delicately crafted for a beautiful, lifelike look. They will blend naturally with your surrounding teeth. No drilling and no shots required. No temporaries, so no tooth structure needs to be removed. The entire process takes two easy dental visits. Permanently whitens teeth while improving shape! Proven to last more than 20 years!
Veneers are available as well at Cheema Dental! What are Veneers? Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic (porcelain) or a composite resin material, which are bonded to the front of teeth. Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color, size or shape. Veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline and damage due to an injury or as a result of a root-canal procedure. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider veneers. Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia. Patients may need up to three appointments for the entire procedure: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation and bonding. To prepare the teeth for the veneers, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. Usually, about half a millimeter of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anesthetic. When your ceramic veneers are ready, the dentist places each veneer on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or color.
Why do I need a bridge?
- Dental health is the most important reason for a bridge. Teeth were designed to complement each other. Unusual stresses are placed on the gums and other oral tissues when teeth are missing, causing a number of potentially harmful disorders.
- Increased risk of gum disease has proven to be one of the worst side effects of missing teeth and can be minimized with a bridge.
- Missing teeth can cause speech disorders as they are used to make many of the sounds we use to speak clearly.
- Oral functionality and appearance are important reasons for wearing a bridge. A bridge helps support your lips and cheeks. The loss of a back tooth may cause your mouth to sink and your face to look older.
How is a bridge attached?
First visit: the abutment teeth are prepared. Preparation involves recontouring these teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown to be replaced over them. Next impression of the teeth are made, which serves as a model form which the bridge, pontic, and crowns will be made by a dental lab. The dentist will make temporary bridge to wear to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the bridge is being made.
Second Visit: Your temporary bridge will be removed and the new permanent bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve proper fit. Multiple visits may be required to check the fit. This depends on each individual
