Dental veneers are thin porcelain or composite resin covers that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural and attractive appearance. They can be used to fix fractured, stained, misaligned, worn, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. The two most common materials used in dental veneers are composite resin and porcelain. Dental veneers are bonded to teeth with resinous cement. Porcelain is a fragile material; however, when firmly attached to the tooth it can become very strong and durable. Your dentist can also complete a veneer in a single visit using CAD / CAM technology.
New technology for dental crowns
CAD / CAM technology is computer-aided manufacturing and project technology. This technology is used to help dentists and prosthetic laboratory technicians create precise shapes and sizes for dental restorations. The three-dimensional image of your teeth and gums allows the dentist to create the precise design of the restoration or crown. This is expensive technology and not all dentists use it in their offices. However, CAD / CAM technology is extremely advanced and reduces consultation time.
