Restorations, like crowns and fillings, can treat tooth decay and even infected or damaged teeth. But we also have a dental restoration that can improve the beauty of your smile. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about how we can completely transform smile beauty with our custom porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are very thin restorations that we attach to the front of each tooth, covering the front and sides instantly. This enables us to change the shape and color of the teeth, improving overall esthetics. Each one is custom-made and fitted for your smile to offer a smile makeover in as little one to two visits. We could even combine them with other treatments, such as teeth whitening and bonding, to ensure your new restoration matches your brightest smile.
Cosmetic Treatment Options
Our team could use them to mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to teeth whitening. In addition, we could lengthen the teeth worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding) and repair minor chips and cracks too. Placement reshapes malformed teeth, and could also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, offering an alternative to treatments like braces or clear aligners. Our team could also use them to close embarrassing gaps in between the teeth.
How do we create and place them? To begin, we will numb the tooth and then gently remove an outer layer of enamel to make room for the new restoration. Next, we take detailed digital images of the tooth, which we combine to create a 3D model. This enables us to design and craft the restoration with precision and accuracy. When the veneer is ready, you will return to the office so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. We attach it with a powerful bonding agent, which could keep it in place for years to come.
To keep them bright and long-lasting, you need to brush and floss the teeth, as this protects the tooth we’ve attached them to from issues like cavities, infections, and gum disease. This also keeps the surfaces bright and stain-free too. Be sure you also attend six-month checkup and cleaning visits every six months too!
