Treatment of Porcelain Veneers and Crowns were used in this case to replace existing work that was done incorerctly by another doctor. Dull and lifeless crowns were replaced with new custom made lifelike and natural crowns by Dr. Ghiam. The irritation of the gum tissue due to poorly fitting restorations was corrected in addition to the severe wear due to grinding was also corrected.
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 is 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.
This procedure is almost always painless.
The strength of well-placed Porcelain Veneers by Dr. Joshua Giam is similar to that of natural tooth structure, lasting many, many years.
