Broken Veneers

Broken Veneers

While misaligned teeth are an extremely common issue for a high number of individuals, the effect they have on people can result in them having a poor quality of life due to reduced confidence and reluctance to take part in public speaking or busy social events.

But, the increasing popularity and accessibility of recent cosmetic dentistry – possibly brought about by its emerging publicity – has allowed many regular individuals to take this course of action to improve their self-esteem and enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth.

Dental veneers have been used to create a smile makeover that can transform crooked, stained, damaged or worn teeth for many years, creating a smile that would not go amiss.


What are dental veneers?

This type of cosmetic dentistry revolves around the use of very thin laminates of tooth-coloured material – normally produced using porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding products – that are cemented to the front of the teeth like the lens to your eye.








What issues can they resolve?

Dental veneers can improve a number of problems regarding the appearance of teeth. These include:

Damaged teeth:

those that have become badly worn through grinding during the night or an unhealthy diet that consists of too many sugary foods and drinks can be fixed with veneers. Similarly, small chips or cavities that have emerged can be repaired with composite bonding, while a single damaged toothcan be replaced with a ceramic veneer, which possesses similar characteristics as the natural tooth.





















Strained teeth:

Severely discoloured teeth that cannot be improved with alternative cosmetic dentistry can be transformed with dental veneers that can cover any existing stains that are found on the teeth.

Crooked teeth:

while dental veneers may not be the ideal treatment for misaligned teeth – where orthodontics would be a more viable solution – they can significantly improved those that are not severely uneven. Braces placed over the front surface of these teeth can create a straight and perfectly-aligned smile.

Viable solution:

Gapped teeth:

spaces that emerge between the pearly whites over time (or those that have been present since eruption) can be closed using this course of action, creating a straighter, more uniform-looking smile.










What does the procedure entail?

Initially, patients will be asked to attend an introductory dental examination to allow the practitioner to look at the teeth and discuss methods in which they can be treated . During this appointment, it is advised individuals raise any causes for concern with their dentist – as well as any questions about the cost of the procedure.

Following this consultation, the front surfaces of the teeth are reshaped to prepare for the application of the veneers. This process will be carried out using a local anesthetic that numbs the teeth and their surrounding gums .

The dental professional will remove a tiny section of the tooth using a specially designed drill, while the amount that is removed is usually similar to the size of the veneer that is set to sit over the top of the tooth.

An impression of the mouth is then created with the use of dental putty that has been pushed against the area to make an impression. When this has been sent to the laboratory, the mould is utilized to create an accurate representation that will be the basis from which the veneers are customized.

While this process can take between one and three weeks, many dentists will provide temporary replacements for the natural teeth that have been shaved down to prepare for the new veneers. The second appointment will see the fit of the new veneers to the teeth , which are usually cleaned thoroughly and roughened with a special acid gel to provide the optimum surface for the dental cement to be utilised.

Following this, the veneers are attached using a curing light that activates the adhesive to permanently bond the veneer to the front surface of the prepared tooth. Any excess cement is then trimmed away and polished to leave an attractive and natural-looking restoration.


How long will my dental veneers last?

Porcelain veneers usually last between five and ten years, while composite options last one or two years at the most. Unfortunately, all patients will need to have the veneers replaced at some point in the future.

Although the veneers are cemented into place, they can come loose and fall off. If this occurs, patients should keep hold of the veneer and contact their cosmetic dentist immediately.

An effective daily oral health routine is vital to ensuring dental veneers last as long as possible and remain as attractive as they were after the day they were fitted.


What if a dental veneer breaks?

While the veneers are usually extremely durable, patients may find they become chipped, cracked or broken and require urgent attention from a dentist. This is when a number of factors come into play concerning the course of action that will be taken depending on the extent of the issue.

The age, type and location within the mouth all need to be considered by a dentist.

Initially, individuals should ensure they visit their dentist as soon as they can if a chip or fissure is noticed on the veneer, as the longer it is left, the more often the installation will become damaged beyond repair.

Patients are advised to ask their dentist about the possibility of applying dental composite over the broken veneer to resolve the issue, which is more appropriate for those that have broken at the back of the mouth.

Following this, many dentists will recommend the damaged installation is replaced. Although this may seem like a drastic solution to a small problem, veneers are usually replaced after ten or 15 years. Wearers are advised to be prepared for the existing fitting to be ground down to make way for a new one. This course of action often requires the use of local anaesthetic – particularly in cases where the veneer was damaged in areas close to the gum line, which could call for more than one visit to the dental practice if a practitioner needs to match the original shade.

Some patients may be lucky enough to have their broken veneers repaired in a matter of minutes using light-cured composites, which require a light or laser in order to cement into place.


Prepless veneers(non invasive veneers)

No-Prep or Prepless veneers are a hot topic in dentistry today. There are several reasons for the increase in popularity of prepless veneers, including patient demand for a seemingly conservative and reversible dental procedure that is cosmetic. Dentists have also long desired a way to simplify the process of preparing veneers as well as being conservative to tooth structure—what better way than to eliminate the preparation of a tooth or teeth altogether.Other brand name prepless veneers are on the market today.Prepless Veneer are customized according to shape of their teeth which should be designed for every teeth n for every patient.

A prepless veneer is when a dentist simply takes an impression of unprepared teeth and sends this to a laboratory for veneers to be made. The lab fabricates additive veneers on the model of the teeth that are to be enhanced, and sends this back to the dentist who bonds the veneers into place. Dr.Dilip kumar and Head ceramist Dr.Manohar have devised their own technique for this type of veneer, called “NON INVASIVE” where either no preparation is performed on the teeth, or a combination of no prep veneer and minimal preparation veneer is performed as needed. The reality is that this procedure is case specific in its application. The case shown turned out to be beautiful, however in order to do this the upper right canine had to be shortened (it was too low), so totally prepless was not an option. However, the lateral incisors were peg in nature, and needed mainly to have porcelain added to them (basically prepless). A combination case is usually performed in these situations for an ideal result. The goal of cosmetic cases should be twofold: preservation of tooth structure as well as a highly aesthetic result. The more conservative the preparation, the safer it is for the pulpal status of a tooth. In addition, the more enamel present on a tooth, the better the bond of the veneer to a tooth, therefore no prep veneers or “prep-less” veneer combination cases should be employed whenever possible.

It is the safest and best method for smile designing of all patients who is esthetic concern.
