Default Can a chip in a porcelain veneer be repaired?


Hi, I have two porcelain veneers on my upper front teeth that I had
put on in 1994. One of them just chipped on the bottom. Can it be
repaired or is it likely that I will have to get a replacement veneer?
Do replacement veneers require new impressions and everything? I
have moved since having the veneers done and don't know whether I
should drive 50+ miles down to my old dentist to have it repaired or
go to my new dentist (who I haven't seen yet since I just moved three
months ago.) Anybody have any advice?

Resin repairs to porcelain veneers do not typically last many years.

A new veneer is probably indicated. If your dentist has a CEREC machine,
your new porcelain veneer can be fabricated from an optical image, and
milled in 8-12 minutes while you wait. One appointment.

Thanks for the info. I'm not sure if my old dentist has the CEREC
machine or not. He didn't when I had my initial veneers made but I'll
have to check to see if he has started using it since then.

Can you recommend any dentists in the Santa Monica, CA area that use
the CEREC machine? Getting a new veneer in just one appointment is a
very appealing option.

There is a web-page listing some of the users by geographical region. Let
me know if I need to hunt for it.

Doesn't cerec have limited shades? for veneers? I have heard that it isn't used
for anteriors.

You have all the vita shades (standard and esthetic), plus some more options
with other brand blocks. All the porcelains can be custom stained in
minutes. You can place stained adhesives under to tint the shade. You can
do any tooth in the mouth. If you are doing an anterior which is heavily
colored, then you might let a lab technician do the staining. It is great
for veneers since most veneers do not get custom staining, only cement
tinting. It will cut a veneer in minutes. If you are matching natural
enamel, a polished surface blends in better than a glazed one.

My impression too! I am way fussy with esthetics directly in front!
