What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials such as porcelain or plastic.

They are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to your teeth changing their colour, shape, size, or length.

What are the different types?

Veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials.

Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers, and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.

Resin veneers are thinner and require less removal of tooth structure before placement.

Why are veneers used?

They can be used to correct a number of dental problems, including:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too large
  • Chips or cracks in the tooth enamel
  • Stains on the teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

 

Veneers can give you a beautiful, white and healthy-looking smile. They are durable and long-lasting. With proper care, veneers can last for many years. They are stain resistant and easy to keep clean.

What care and maintenance is involved?

Veneers require the same care as natural teeth.

Be sure to brush and floss daily, and see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleaning.

Avoid biting hard objects as this can damage them. Also avoid using abrasive toothpastes or whiteners that can scratch the surface.

What does our veneers process involve?

  1. Initial consultation to discover your needs and goals
  2. Formulate cosmetic plan according to your budget
  3. Teeth preparation: gentle shaping in order for them to hold veneer
  4. Permanent veneers placed by our cosmetic dentistry experts

If you are reading this blog, then chances are, you have considered teeth whitening in the past.

If you are wanting to restore those pearly whites, then keep reading because Zoom teeth whitening may be the perfect solution for you.

This popular treatment can help you achieve a brighter smile in as little as an hour.

So what’s involved?

The first step is to schedule a consultation with your dentist.

During this appointment, the Dakabin Dental team will assess the condition of your teeth and determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

Your dentist will provide you with instructions on how to prepare for your appointment. You will be provided with pre-treatment instructions, which include coming to your appointment with clean teeth. This means that you should brush and floss your teeth before coming in for your treatment.

You will also need to have any metal fillings or other dental appliances removed.

The dentist will then apply a special gel to your teeth. This gel helps to open up the pores of your teeth so that the whitening solution can penetrate more deeply.

The Zoom whitening lamp will then be used to activate the bleaching solution and the light from the lamp will help to break down the stains on your teeth.

In under an hour, your teeth will be significantly whiter, in most cases Zoom whitening can achieve results up to 8 shades whiter in just one sitting!

For those coffee and red wine lovers, if there are any stubborn stains at the end of your treatment, you may recommend additional treatments.

After your treatment is complete, you will want to make sure that you take care of your teeth and follow the after care protocols very closely.

You will need to avoid eating or drinking for at least an hour after your treatment so the whitening solution has time to work and keep whitening your teeth.

Again, those coffee and red wine drinkers, you will need to avoid dark liquids and also foods for a minimum of 24 hours.

This ensures, that with diligent and proper care, your teeth will stay white and bright for months to come.

A dental crown is a restoration that is used to cover a tooth that has been damaged or decayed. Crowns can be made from different materials, including porcelain, gold, and metal alloys.

In this blog post, we will answer 10 frequently asked questions about dental crowns!

FAQ #1: What are dental crowns made of?

They can be made from different materials, including porcelain, gold, and metal alloys.

Porcelain crowns are the most popular type of dental crown because they look natural and are durable and can be colour matched to the rest of your teeth.

Gold crowns have been popular because they are strong and long-lasting. Metal alloys are not as popular because they can discolour the teeth.

FAQ #2: What are they used for?

Dental crowns are used to cover a tooth that has been damaged or decayed. Crowns can also be used to support a dental bridge, or to protect a tooth that has been weakened by root canal treatment.

FAQ #3: How long do they last?

Dental crowns can last for many years, but they may eventually need to be replaced. The lifespan of a dental crown depends on the material it is made from, as well as how well you take care of your teeth.

FAQ #4: What are the benefits?

There are many benefits, including restoring the function of a damaged tooth, improving the appearance of a tooth, and protecting a weak tooth from further damage.

FAQ #5: Are they expensive?

The cost varies depending on the material they are made from and where you get them done. Porcelain crowns are typically more expensive than gold crowns,

FAQ #6: What is the procedure like?

The dental crown procedure usually takes two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the tooth will be prepared for the dental crown and a temporary crown will be placed. During the second visit, the permanent dental crown will be placed.

At Dakabin Dental, we are able to perform these procedures in just one visit with no temporary crowns required.

Most people do not experience any pain during a procedure like this. However, you may feel some discomfort during the numbing process.

FAQ #8: Are there any risks?

There are very few risks associated with dental crowns. The most common complication is that the dental crown does not fit properly and needs to be replaced.

FAQ #9: How can I care for my dental crowns?

You should brush and floss your teeth twice a day and visit the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. It is also important to avoid chewing hard foods, that can damage dental crowns.

FAQ #10: Do they fall out?

Dentists have been using dental crowns to restore teeth for many years and for good reason.

But first…

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Traditionally, dental crowns were made in a lab by a dental technician. This process could take several days, sometimes weeks, and often results in multiple visits to the dentist’s office.

Depending on your case, your dentist will likely recommend a crown to you if your teeth are:

  • Chipped
  • Broken
  • Heavily filled
  • Discoloured
  • Widely spaced apart
  • Or after root canal treatment has been performed

Recently, however, dentists have begun using Cerec machines to create dental crowns right in their own offices. This new technology allows for same-day dental crowns!

Cerec is short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Aesthetic Ceramics and is one of the most recent and advanced technologies currently available in digital dentistry.

The Cerec machine uses a milling machine, CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) and 3D imaging software.

The process is quite simple, efficient and involves four distinct phases:

Your Initial Scan – This is where your dentist will scan your teeth using the CEREC scanner, providing an accurate 3D digital impression of your mouth or a specific tooth.

Crown Concept – After the scan has been done using the 3D image, a model will be done using the CEREC machine software. The digital crown will be designed with amazing accuracy to match your natural tooth in size, shape and colour.

Milling – Now for the fun part, the dentist will send the design to the in-house milling machine, the chosen blank is placed into the machine and your crown will be cut out, leaving you with a crown perfected suited for your mouth.

Final Touches – Lastly, the dentist will polish, stain and glaze your new crown to make it look natural and place it into a furnace. This step is why crowns are so strong as the heat increases the hardness and strength of the crown.

Dental crowns are a great way to restore your smile and with the new technology of Cerec machines, you can now get a dental crown in just one visit to the dentist.

The benefits of same-day crowns are eliminating the need for temporary crowns, you can restore your smile quicker without the need for multiple appointments or waiting weeks for your next appointment and the strength and reliability of the technology used that traditional impressions cannot provide.

Same-day dentistry is possible with Cerec and means you will have a dental crown that is specifically designed for your tooth in just one visit.
