Treatment of 6 Porcelain Veneers were used in this case to close the open bite, restore lip support and correct staining present on the front teeth in addition to correcting severe wear from grinding the teeth during sleep.
The purpose of the treatment was to restore lost tooth structure while also enhancing the color, shape and the position of the teeth.
A contact lens thin layer of highly aesthetic porcelain in bonded directly to the existing tooth.
The results are noticed immediately. The procedure takes 2 visits which last 2-3 hours each. Only local anesthetic is used with minimal to zero down time.
The procedure is almost always painless.
The strength of well-placed Porcelain Veneers by Dr. Joshua Ghiam is similar to that of natural tooth structure, lasting many, many years.
