When you have multiple issues with the overall appearance of your smile, that doesn’t mean several treatments will be necessary to transform it. Instead, your Cleveland, TX, dentist could provide dramatic improvement and mask imperfections with one or more porcelain veneers. In today’s blog, find out how we craft and place these custom cosmetic restorations.
The Improvements Veneers Make Possible
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain, which we place onto the front-facing sides of each tooth. This covers the front and sides instantly, correcting a multitude of cosmetic issues with the shape and color of the smile. For example, we can mask discoloration instantly, including the kinds so severe they don’t respond to teeth whitening. We also close embarrassing gaps between the teeth and lengthen worn down teeth as well. Placement also reshapes malformed teeth as well, and could even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, straightening smiles without orthodontic treatment.
Crafting and Placing Them
The process takes only two visits. To begin, we will administer a local numbing agent to keep you comfortable as we remove a thin layer of enamel from the outside of the teeth. We then take detailed impressions and images with digital scanning technology. We use this information in a lab setting to design and craft the finished product. When your new restoration is ready, we will attach them with a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, they can last for decades to come and transform your smile! We could even whiten your smile beforehand to ensure these veneers match your brightest smile.
Keeping Your Restorations Bright
Routine care, the same that protects the health of your teeth and gums, could also help your restorations stay bright. The same care could also protect the teeth we’ve attached them to from oral health issues that could cause them to become lost. You should take time to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes. Using a fluoride toothpaste each time. You should also floss every evening, avoiding tobacco products, and cut back on your consumption of foods and drinks high in sugar and starch.
