Dental veneer, also known as porcelain veneer or ceramic veneer, will repair tooth that is discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned or irregularly shaped tooth, and tooth with cap. Dental veneer will provide you with a natural tooth appearance that will not affect or irritate your gum issue. Porcelain veneer is stain resistant, and can make dark teeth appear whiter. It offers a conservative approach to changing a tooth's color and shape. Extensive shaping prior to the procedure that crown need is not required for veneer and is actually stronger and more esthetic than crown or bonding.
Veneers are routinely used to fix:
Teeth that are discolored. Either because of root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes; or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
Teeth that are worn down
Teeth that are chipped or broken
Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them)
Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)
What is Emax porcelain veneer?
Emax Veneer is built as a thin layered veneer to be bonded to the front surface of the tooth for appearance and functional enhancement. It is made from Lithium Disilicate Glass Ceramicm which is extremely stronger than the Empress Veneer. Besides outstanding aesthetics with shade capacities, the Emax Veneer is also capable to be pressed as thin as 0.3 mm so that you do not need to lose much of your tooth layer for preparation. It proposes to deliver a more durable yet seamless and natural-looking smile.
We established the First Emax Veneer Center which satisfies the international standard of cosmetic dentistry to offer those who desire the smile makeover while having a holiday in Phuket, Thailand. With this facility, it helps us to provide the custom-made veneer exactly as per your request monitored by our well-trained dental specialists so you can be assured about the quality control and on-time shipment.
What are the Advantages of Emax veneers
The main difference between more traditional designs and Emax veneers is that they are made out of a specially treated ceramic, so that they can be cut very thin and still remain durable.
Higher edge strength versus the feldspathic veneers and thus Emax Lithium Disilicate can be finished thinner without chipping (This is the edge of the veneers where they come into contact with other teeth, veneers or crowns).
The Emax can withstand chips and fractures, as well as remaining resistant to stains; their width also makes them appear less bulky and more in proportion with the natural facial structure.
As indicated earlier minimal preparation veneers as low viscosity of heat ingot enables pressing to very thin dimension. The thinner the veneer, the less the preparation or drilling of the tooth and hence the stronger the bond between the tooth and veneer. This is because with minimal reshaping of the tooth, the cementation is with the enamel which is the best and strongest bond to compare with bonding with inner layer of the tooth, the dentine, which is exposed when more of the tooth is removed and drilled off. However, please note that this is the comparison between the Emax Lithium Disilicate porcelain veneers and another conventional porcelain veneers only, and the treatment plan in each client still be individual as it's also related to the dental condition and the occlusion of your teeth too.
In what situations can Emax veneers be used?
Cosmetically to improve the aesthetics and getting a white beautiful smile. In these cases usually the top eight teeth are veneered in the aesthetic or smile zone (i.e. the teeth that are visible when smiling) .
Crooked or misshaped teeth. If teeth are not badly aligned or are not of correct morphology, the looks can be instantly improved by Emax veneers. However the larger the misalignment the more tooth removal may be needed.
Space closure/diastemas or chipped teeth - Emax veneers are an ideal choice to close single or multiple spaces. Where teeth are small and bulk need to be added to make teeth more expressive and visible. They can also be used to correct and rectify the chipped teeth.
Discoloured teeth ; Not only the shape and design of the teeth can be changed and improved by Emax veneers but also the discoloration of the teeth can be masked and covered as in tetracycline staining.
Procedure for Emax veneers fit
As with any type of veneer, teeth, the facial profile and occlusion of the teeth (the way teeth come together and more over each other) has to be clinically assessed. Then based on above assessment and findings a design for the veneers are chosen from a possible list of different designs. This is followed by trial smile which is reproducing the chosen design on the model of teeth in wax. At this stage also any tooth removal/preparation if needed is assessed and shown to patient.
After this stage has been completed, a mould of your teeth will be taken and then sent away to
our ceramists to build a set of veneers to your exact specifications. When your veneers are ready, you can return to the clinic to have them permanently cemented in place, using very strong resin cements.
