We’ve looked at professional teeth whitening and dental bonding, but what if there was a single procedure that could offer the benefits of both treatments? With porcelain veneers, we create custom and handcrafted cosmetic restorations to change the shape and color of the smile. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about the benefits of cosmetic veneers.
How We Hand-Craft These Restorations
Each one is crafted specifically for your smile, ensuring a comfortable fit, a balanced bite, and of course, lifelike results. To begin, we will need to thoroughly examine your smile to assess the severity of your cosmetic concerns. Next, we will administer a local anesthetic so you’re comfortable as we remove a thin layer of outer enamel. The next step is to gather digital images of the prepared teeth, which we use in a lab setting to begin designing and crafting the finished product. The veneer is crafted from porcelain, a strong material often used for replacement teeth in bridges, implants, and dentures. The material can absorb daily bite forces, and is also translucent like natural enamel. We then color-match it so it blends with your smile. We may whiten your teeth beforehand so your restorations match your brightest possible smile!
Placing Your New Cosmetic Restoration
When your new veneers are ready, you will return to the office for placement. We first check the fit and make sure we don’t need to make final adjustments. The restoration is then affixed to the tooth with a powerful bonding agent. With proper care and attention, they can stay in place and remain bright for years to come. You should continue to brush and floss, and include your restored tooth when you do. Be sure to see us for a checkup and cleaning every six months too, so we can keep an eye on your smile.
Benefits for a Tooth’s Beauty
The placement covers the front and sides of the tooth, instantly repairing minor chips and cracks, or adding length to worn down teeth. We could also close gaps between teeth and reshape malformed ones too. We make permanent teeth stains and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment as well. If you have any questions about the benefits of our porcelain veneers, or if you would like to try them for yourself, then contact our team today.
