Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain Dental Veneers are very thin laminates or coverings that are ‘cemented’ to the front surface of the tooth to improve its cosmetic appearance. Veneers can be constructed of porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material.
Veneers are used for a variety of applications including covering stained teeth, damaged teeth, gapped teeth and slightly misaligned teeth. Procedures for Dental Veneers require a couple of visits in order that your tooth can be prepared to accommodate the Veneer. After an impression of your teeth is made it is then sent to a dental laboratory where they cast a model of the Veneer to be fitted over your tooth. On the return visit Dr. Rogers will fit the new Veneer to cover the affected tooth leaving a natural, beautiful-looking restoration.
Aurum Cristal® Veneers are similar to porcelain Veneers as they cover stained, chipped, discoloured or slightly misaligned teeth. The difference between porcelain Veneers and Aurum's Cristal® Veneers is that Aurum's Cristal® Veneers are much thinner, yet very strong. Because Aurum's Cristal® Veneers are so thin, they require minimal invasive dental treatment for tooth preparation. As a result the procedure is often reversible since the natural tooth is left intact compared to porcelain veneers where a significant amount of the tooth structure may need to be removed. Aurum's Cristal® Veneers can be placed over existing crown and bridge work without the need to replace them.
Aurum’s Cristal® Veneers are a minimally invasive alternative to other cosmetic options and can offer a noticeable improvement for:
- Stained teeth
- Small teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Slight misalignments
- Worn teeth
