In addition to our CEREC service, deme offers our patients the option of porcelain veneers, which are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory to correct teeth that are either crooked, worn or chipped, too small or too large, or are situated in unwanted or uneven spaces.

The process of getting veneers usually requires two visits, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. Teeth are first lightly buffed to shape the surface and allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.

After porcelain crowns

All deme crowns are created via the advanced system, CEREC, a system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations-in one office visit (click here to learn more about CEREC). A crown–a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, giving it the appearance of its original shape, size, and color–protects and strengthens tooth structure if it cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations, whether due to fractured teeth or fillings, root canal, or tooth decay. Sometimes, if there is enough healthy tooth structure left, your deme dentist will suggest a partial crown, also known as a porcelain onlay.

Crown procedures involve taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

After porcelain bridge

A long-lasting porcelain dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth, to maintain facial shape, prevent remaining teeth from shifting, or to upgrade from a removable partial denture.

You and your deme dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case. The “traditional bridge,” however, is the most popular type and is usually composed of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth), then attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Getting a bridge usually requires up to three visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.

Porcelain Inlay

Tough porcelain inlays can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large, defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. Inlays are an ideal alternative to conventional silver and composite fillings. Also, they are more conservative than crowns because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of inlays.
