Do you agree that the first fit veneers have skyrocketed in popularity with their aesthetic appearance? This game-changing development in the realm of dentistry has brought confidence and bright smiles to millions of people all over the world. Revolutionising in the industry these veneers enhance the look of the person. The main reason first-fit veneers are desired by all is because of their practical approach. Aesthetic dentists use this procedure to offer a visualization of the treatment to the patients. Let us learn more about first-fit dental veneers.
Digitized solution apt for this era:
The digital era demands tools and procedures that make things convenient and viable. The first-fit dental veneers give the patient a deeper view of what is going to be the outcome of the procedure and how it is done through the Digital smile designing (DSD) tool. This tool benefits the patient by helping them to get involved in the process and motivates them to learn the possibilities with aesthetic visualization.
It starts with :
1.Taking information from the patient
To get the aesthetic smile you need to understand the pose and angle. To do so the dentist takes clear and close photos and videos of the mouth. This helps to get the structural information of the patient. The dentist uses a digital scanner or an intraoral scanner to take the pictures and then they are imported to the DSD software. This scanning is highly recommended to get the perfect smile and check the teeth’ orientation for effective results.
The procedure is so analytical and logical and technicians get clarity perfectly because of its real-time screening. The technician watches the pictures while the mouth is being scanned and this ensures the highest efficiency in the result. The visual representation gives a natural effect as the images are gathered at all the required angles to perfect the outcome. This step eliminates adjustments and multiple visits to the clinic making it a time saver.
2.Smile Design Simulation
One of the most efficient tools to enhance the smile is the smile design software which offers a digital mock-up of the possibilities that the patient has. The patient gets to see the outcome and discuss the process and his or her choice of mock-up. The goals are discussed to ensure the 3D model of the patient is in complete control of the patient to get the best smile after the treatment. Sometimes the dentist can use the mock-up version to place in the patient’s mouth to give an actual understanding of how it feels while talking and smiling. It gives a better idea of how the teeth will look and feel after the process.
- Cosmetic Procedure
The guides are designed from digital impressions that replicate the patient’s mouth. The procedure involves placing the guides on the patient’s teeth and then the first handpiece fits right into the guide. The track design of the guide ensures perfect movement of the handpiece which achieves nothing less than the perfect achievement of pre-designed preparation. The handpiece glides precisely to reach the perfect shape and removes only a thin layer of enamel which doesn’t harm the structure and strength of the natural teeth.
This process is minimally invasive because it contours the teeth exactly to match the pre-approved virtual designs. It helps to get aesthetic results that match the shape of the teeth of final restorations.
- Bonding with cementation
The individual ceramic veneers are loaded already in the cementation guide positioning perfectly to fit in the patient’s mouth and allowing up to 10 ceramic veneers to be placed in a single movement. Once the veneers are bonded the guide is removed easily which guarantees perfect and lasting results.
To sum up; every patient has curiosity and is skeptical about any procedure, with this digital mode the patient can view the result of the proposed treatment. It is a multi-step process but it is quick and hassle-free.
