Is It Possible to Make Veneers in a Single Session?
Porcelain veneers are very strong and with good care can last for ten years or more. But that doesn’t mean you can’t break them. If you trip over, are hit in the face, or bite into unexpectedly hard food, you can break them just like your natural teeth.
When you break your porcelain veneer, you may need to wear a temporary veneer or live with a temporary tooth until the veneer is replaced. This can take two weeks or longer.
But what if you have a special situation and don’t want to use temporary teeth for two weeks? This is exactly where we can help you. We can provide you with one or several coating changes a day. How is it?
Why Can Porcelain Veneers Take Time to Replace?
Laboratories normally produce porcelain veneers. Your dentist takes impressions and designs veneers. Then a ceramist makes the coating using the design material sent by your dentist.
It takes time to get to the laboratory and back. However, the process of actually producing the coating also takes time. Sometimes the lab is close enough to form a new coating in a matter of days. This usually comes with a hefty surcharge for a rush order. Normally it takes more than a week to get the veneer replacement.
If your specific case is before then, you’ll need to accept a temporary overlay, defeating the purpose of owning the veneer in the first place.
Replacing Porcelain Veneers with Fast CAD CAM System
However, our CAD CAM (Computer aided design) system gives us another way to speed up changing overlays.
After making the necessary preparations in the patient’s mouth, the physician scans the mouth with a special comb. The size of the mouth is transferred to the computer system in 3D. Then the computer aided design phase begins.
After the design is done in the computer environment, a different machine comes into play. In other words, the computer aided the production part. Special porcelain blocks are placed inside the machine. It extracts three-dimensionally with its own milling cutters. The biggest advantage is that results are obtained very quickly.
With Cad Cam Dentistry, it is possible to make fixed prostheses for the patient in a single session without laboratory steps.
