Dental veneers, thin shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance, have also benefited from the advancements in injection moulding techniques. Traditionally, veneers are crafted from porcelain or composite resin materials. However, injection moulded composite bonding (often referred to as composite veneers) presents a leading alternative. This method involves creating a digital design of the veneer, which is then accurately brought to life using a mould. The flowable ceramic composite is injected into this mould, ensuring an impeccable fit and natural appearance.
Dental bonding is an innovative technique that employs the precision of injection moulding to restore or enhance the appearance of teeth seamlessly. In this method, a technician digitally designs the ideal tooth shape and anatomy, which is then precisely replicated onto the tooth. We’ll fix the space between the teeth using specially crafted moulds and the new design is filled with a flowable ceramic composite material.
