Is tooth grinding necessary?

When the technique is the dental veneer, it is necessary to grind the teeth regardless of the type of change desired. In the case of contact lenses, this is not a rule.

In placing the lenses, the tooth wear process is minimal or none at all.

This wear can be done on all teeth in the upper or lower arcade, or just on some specific teeth that are out of position or too inclined.

But contrary to what many people think, opting for wear is not a choice made by the professional, or the patient, but rather determined by the position of the patient's tooth in addition to what they want as a result.

“The correct indication of lenses and dental veneers, aligned with the patient's objective, is what brings the best results.”

Durability of dental contact lenses: understand more

Dental lenses and veneers represent a major evolution in dentistry. There are several types of ceramics to manufacture them, each with its respective characteristics. Some are more resistant than the tooth itself and can last up to 20 years if well cared for, studies say. But for them to last longer, it is necessary to have good habits and care both by the professional who performs it and by the patient.

The lenses have high resistance and durability

Dental contact lenses have high resistance to the impact of chewing, but they can suffer external actions that reduce their useful life. Therefore, we can say that the duration of an aesthetic treatment where dental contact lenses are placed is very relative, as it depends care for each patient. We have separated the main characteristics so that you understand why they are resistant and durable:

Dental contact lenses are made of porcelain and therefore maintain their initial color and shine over time. Porcelain is a highly stain-resistant material and does not undergo significant changes in color, as long as adequate oral hygiene care is maintained. This way, patients can trust that their lenses will remain their original color and shine for a long period of time.

There is no fixed expiration date for dental contact lenses made from porcelain. Expiration is more related to proper care and maintenance, as well as correct use. If the patient follows the dentist's instructions, practices good oral hygiene and avoids habits that could damage the lenses, such as biting on hard objects, contact lenses can last for many years without the need for replacement. 

Porcelain dental veneers are designed to resist the forces of chewing. As long as they are properly fixed and well adapted by the dentist, and the patient avoids harmful habits, such as biting hard objects or excessively hard foods, contact lenses can withstand the pressures of chewing without fractures or damage, maintaining their functionality for a long time. period.

AND It is important to emphasize to patients that the durability of dental contact lenses is directly linked to preventive care and following the dentist's instructions. By adopting good oral hygiene habits and avoiding behaviors that could damage the lenses, they can enjoy the benefits of these lenses for many years.

4 interesting facts about dental lenses that you should know

1. Teeth that receive laminated porcelain veneers have greater resistance against fractures and cracks. Cracks are uncomfortable situations, as they are visible in some types of environments, and can generate a lot of sensitivity or be a contraindication for tooth whitening, if the patient's ultimate goal is to correct the color.
2. Made of biomaterial, the porcelain veneer is more resistant than natural tooth enamel!
3. The material of dental lenses is color stable, that is, they do not change color.
4. The material of lenses and dental veneers could last forever if they were not affected by uncontrolled parafunctional habits such as nail biting, clenching teeth, biting pen caps, opening or pulling things with your teeth.

Understand why lenses fall out

Some lenses fall out due to failure in the professional's adhesive cementation or due to habits exercised by patients. It is important that patients follow the dentist's instructions to avoid problems with dental contact lenses and consult the professional regularly to assess oral health and detect any need for repair.

What reasons make the lenses fall out?

The two main reasons for the lens to fall out on the part of the professional are linked to occlusion (bite) and adhesion (union of the tooth with the porcelain).

How can we avoid falls?

To avoid falls caused by poor adhesion, we must carry out careful dental preparations and correctly follow cementation protocols, in addition to using materials with proven quality and efficient adhesive systems and cements.
Another extremely important factor is occlusion (bite). Mutually protected occlusion says, in a simplified way, that the bottom teeth protect the front teeth and vice versa.

Missing teeth can completely disorganize your bite.

That is, there is no point in doing a beautiful job on your front teeth if you are missing teeth in the back or if your bite is completely disorganized. Esthetic work will not last if occlusion concepts are not followed exactly

What precautions should I take?

The patient, on the other hand, must take precautions when chewing, abandon habits such as tearing packaging and biting nails, clenching teeth, biting pen caps, among others, in addition to not forgetting periodic visits to the dentist and correct oral hygiene.

What is the difference between dental lens and porcelain veneer?

Porcelain veneer or dental lens:

Patients' doubts revolve around which one to use. In fact, the two are the same thing, they just differ in thickness, where the porcelain veneer is thicker than the dental lens, a fact that does not interfere at all with resistance, as both after cementation quietly resist masticatory forces. What will define whether you use one or the other is the position or color of the tooth that has been greatly altered, defined by the dentist and discussed in advance with the patient.

Do it with those who know and come transform your smile.

I've always had a hard time going to a dental clinic. For the first time, I can assure you, I am sitting in a “dentist's” chair with complete confidence in the treatment (for me always painful!) which I am currently undergoing. It starts with the feeling of being welcomed by the professional – which makes all the difference when meeting him and knowing that you are -literally- in good hands! And that starts with the reception, whose attendant lives up to this function – that is: receptive at any time when I need it. Congratulations to Clínica Odontoliuzzi and its professionals who carry out exceptional work and admirable quality!

I'm not one to do reviews here on Google, but in this case I decided to make an exception due to the excellent service I had with Odontolouzzi. Today, 03/17/23, I had two wisdom teeth extracted in the same session by Maxillofacial Dr. Jafé Japhet. Surgery was fast, efficient and completely painless, in short: sensational service. I recommend it to everyone.

Since I was a child, I have been traumatized by the dentist because of an accident I had and at the time it was treated in cold blood! Just thinking about going to an office would trigger me and it was like going back in time! Recently, that same tooth had a problem again and I had to look for a dentist urgently, but what about the fear ?! It was then that searching the internet, I found Odontoliuzzi and through the evaluations made here I created courage and made an appointment. It was the best thing I ever did!!!! At the beginning of the treatment, I needed the company of a family member, but now I feel safe and confident to go alone. Thanks to the anesthetist Dr. Gustavo who put me to sleep so that I didn't feel or remember anything. I would also like to thank Drs Camila and Renata for their dedication, patience and excellent work. I cannot fail to thank the secretaries for all their attention, availability, patience and affection!!! And especially Dr. Natália Liuzzi, for having had the sensitivity to think about people who, like me, are traumatized! A thousand note team, I felt welcomed and respected from the 1st contact 💓
