According to the special measurements taken from each tooth, tailored leaf porcelain veneers and lumineers sets are produced, placed in the patient’s respective teeth, and it is provided to have much smoother and whiter teeth.
Metal or ceramic can be chosen as the material that supports porcelain coating. Accordingly, the name of the process can be referred to as metal coating or ceramic coating.
Porcelain coating process steps:
1-The surfaces of the teeth should be cleaned thoroughly. If there is no special case, cleaning is achieved by removing a 0.5 or 0.7 millimeter layer from the tooth surface.
2-In order to be able to measure, it is necessary to obtain the images of the teeth to be covered. Once the dimensions are determined, the process is started for special production.
3-Porcelain veneers placed individually using a special porcelain veneer tooth adhesive can be filed and reshaped where needed.
What Should Be Considered After Porcelain Tooth Coating?
It is a process that does not cause great pain. If local anesthesia is not applied to the patient, it is safe to drive or leave the hospital alone. If there is pain, pain medications recommended by the doctor are used. It is useful to be careful not to consume excessive hot or cold foods and drinks for at least one week after the procedure. It is necessary to avoid hard-chewed, hard and sticky foods.
It is the coating method preferred by patients who are not satisfied with the appearance of their teeth due to their tooth color or structure. There is no need to cut from the outer layer of the tooth before coating. Just like porcelain coating, coatings produced according to special size are directly adhered to the tooth surface. These coatings made of thin and resistant porcelains are preferred because they maintain their permanence for about 20 years.
