When you have more than one esthetic issue with your smile, then you may benefit from porcelain veneers. These thin and custom restorations can help improve overall beauty by instantly changing the shape and color of the teeth. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about our lifelike porcelain veneers.
Creating a Custom Porcelain Veneer
Each one we place will be custom-made for the smile. This means that we create it for the tooth receiving it, so there is a comfortable fit, a balanced bite, and of course, a lifelike appearance. To do this, we start by numbing the tooth receiving the restoration. We then gently remove a thin layer from it. Removing this outer enamel layer helps make room for the restoration. We then gather detailed digital scans and images of the tooth, which we use in a lab setting to design and craft the finished product. When ready, we will check the fit and then place the completed porcelain veneers with a powerful bonding agent. Your new veneer can last for decades to come!
We use porcelain because this material is very strong and durable, able to absorb the daily bite forces and pressures that your natural enamel does. In addition, this material is translucent like tooth enamel, so we can shade it to match the color of surrounding teeth. As a result, no one will be able to tell you’ve undergone treatment, and you will be able to smile with confidence again!
We can address a host of esthetic issues with the placement of one or more porcelain veneers. For example, we can correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you don’t need orthodontics in some cases to enjoy an even smile. We can also close embarrassing gaps between your teeth, or reshape malformed teeth too. Placement can lengthen worn down teeth and repair minor chips and cracks. If you have permanent teeth stains, the kind that don’t respond to most teeth whitening treatments, we can offer a solution in one visit, making these stains right away. For many people, this offers a smile makeover in only two visits!
