E-MAX NO PREPARATION VENEERS
E-Max non-prep veneers are made of lithium disilicate glass ceramic. It’s not only incredibly durable but it also offers outstanding aesthetics. The translucency properties of eMax Non-Prep Veneers are designed to replicate your natural tooth structure. Thus, no one will notice that you underwent smile restorations. The E-Max Veneers will match your existing teeth. In this way, you’ll achieve seamless, natural integration of your smile. They can also be personalized based on the shade and color that you like.
Their thickness can also be minimal around 0.3mm to 0.4mm, so they’re quite similar to a contact lens. One of the advantages of E-Max is that it requires little to no tooth reduction and can be fabricated very thin. It also doesn’t need numbing shots or anesthesia.
They can be used to align crowded or protruding teeth, lighten tooth colour, close gaps and can also be used as an alternative for orthodontic treatment.
They are perfect alternative to crowns due to the minimal removal of the tooth surface.
Getting a dental veneer usually requires two-three visits to our clinic in a period of 6 days – one for a consultation, preparation and two to make and apply the veneers.
Diagnosis and treatment planning
This first step involves your active participation. Explain us the result that you are trying to achieve. During this appointment, we will examine your teeth to make sure dental veneers are appropriate for you and discuss what the procedure will involve and some of its limitations, may take X-rays if necessary, take photos to plan the best design suitable for your face, lips.
To prepare a tooth for a veneer, we will remove about 0,3 millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, which is an amount nearly equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added to the tooth surface. Before trimming off the enamel, you and your dentist will decide the need for a local anesthetic to numb the area. Next, we will take an impression of your tooth. The impression will be scanned for manufacturing process on a cad-cam machine. It takes 2 days for us to prepare the veneers.
A special cement is applied to the veneer and the veneer is then placed on your tooth. Color can be adjusted with the shade of cement used for bonding. Once properly positioned on the tooth, your dentist will apply a special light beam to the dental veneer, which activates chemicals in the cement. The final steps involve removing any excess cement, evaluating your bite and making any final adjustments in the veneer as necessary.
Do dental veneers require special care ?
Dental veneers do not require any special care. Continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash as you normally would.
