Treatment of 8 Porcelain Veneers were used in this case to treat Tetracycline Staining present on the front teeth in addition to correcting severe wear from grinding the teeth during sleep. Tetracycline Staining seldom is treated successfully with teeth whitening or bleaching. Correcting Tetracylcine Staining with Porcelain Veneers is the ideal option and can completely enhance the color of the teeth.
The purpose of the treatment was to mask the dark stained tooth structure while also enhancing the 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 Ghiam is similar to that of natural tooth structure, lasting many, many years.
