Bonding procedure for porcelain veneers is performed

If the bonding is imperfect, the veneered teeth may not be able to withstand the biting and grinding forces in the mouth for very long. Even if a slight portion of the veneer comes off from its position, it can look conspicuous and spoil the oral aesthetics. Therefore, the dentist needs to pay careful attention at the time of bonding to ensure long-term effectiveness of the treatment. At the time of bonding procedure, minor adjustments and trimming of the porcelain veneers may be necessary. The dentist will place them on the prepared teeth temporarily to assess their shape, size and color matching. Once he is satisfied with the results, he will show the temporary placement to the patient for approval. During the process of bonding, it is important to ensure that the prepared teeth are as dry as possible. This will help the dental cement or bonding agent to settle more thoroughly and fuse strongly. Once the permanent veneer is bonded on to the prepared tooth, the dentist will apply a strong beam of light over the veneer. This is done to enable activation of the chemicals present in the bonding agent, which can expedite the hardening and curing process. The last step in the process will include removal of any excess dental cement from the surrounding areas to ensure very natural looking results. The choice of dental cement or adhesive also plays a key role in the success of this procedure. Advanced qualities of dental adhesives are regularly introduced in cosmetic dentistry, and the dentist should stay updated with the latest and most effective innovations in the field.
