Do you need tooth facingfor veneers?
Strong turning of teeth (in other words, dissection of teeth) before installing veneers remains one of the most common myths
Strong turning of teeth (in other words, dissection of teeth) before installing veneers remains one of the most common myths. Dissection of teeth before installing veneers is not more than 0.1-0.3 mm in thickness, which is comparable to the thickness of a contact lens. Of course, there are cases when more serious preparation is required, for example, as a result of a deep carious lesion. In 90% of cases, tooth facing is minimal. Tooth preparation is necessary to ensure that the veneer on the tooth looks as esthetically and organically as possible among the remaining teeth, as well as for maximum accuracy of its installation on the tooth.
The veneer is glued to the tooth and becomes its extension, and there should be no cavities between the tooth, the veneer and the gum. If you do not make the minimum facing, then such an accuracy of the connection of the tooth and veneer will not occur, food will get stuck between the veneer and the tooth, which will lead to the appearance of caries. In our clinic, orthopedic dentists work only under repeated magnification using binoculars and a dental microscope. That allows you to minimize dental treatment before installing veneers and achieve maximum accuracy of attachment to the teeth
