Esthetic facings and porcelain restorations (onlays)

The (biologically) least invasive way to repair a tooth that is either worn down or damaged is by using porcelain facings and onlays. Classic crowns are rarely used for this anymore. By means of a photo shoot in our photo studio an analysis is made of the patient’s natural smile. DSD, Digital Smile Design, allows us to design a new smile that looks both natural and appealing. Obviously we also take the patient’s expectations into consideration. All the acquired information is then transferred to models, upon which the dental technician crafts the new mould tooth by tooth. This is called a mock-up and it allows us to ‘test’ the design in the mouth so we can see what the end result will look like. The teeth are then minimally biologically shaved under a microscope and a magnifying glass before a final print is made. Now the dental technician can start with the artistic work. The wafer-thin porcelain facings and onlays (laminate veneers) are made by hand individually, and layered with porcelain. These are then fitted in the mouth and microscopically inserted. The porcelain restorations are done in such a way that they result in an enhancement that is both predictable and reliable. We also want the restoration to be long-lasting, without any discolouration.
