What Makes Veneers Look So Natural?

cleveland porcelain veneersWhen we see people with multiple issues regarding their smile beauty, we may recommend a single treatment option that can address them all at once. In fact, this option employs custom restorations that look completely natural. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about what makes our porcelain veneers look so lifelike.

The Benefits of Placing Them

Each veneer covers the front and sides of each tooth, which means they can instantly alter the appearance of the teeth. We’ve used them to mask the permanent teeth stains that may resist traditional teeth whitening options, or to even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you enjoy a straighter looking smile with braces or aligners. Our team could also use them to close unsightly gaps between teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and correct misshapen teeth too. Placement could even repair minor cracks or chips. Each veneer we provide will be custom-made specifically for your smile!

Custom-Making Them

To create porcelain veneers, we first numb the tooth or teeth receiving them, and then remove a thin layer of outer enamel. Digital images are taken of the teeth from multiple angles, and then used to create a 3D model. This enables us to design and fabricate them in a dental lab setting, ensuring the finished product fits comfortably and preserves the balance of your bite. The porcelain we create them from is durable and able to handle daily bite forces with ease. We also color match the material to ensure the finished product blends with your smile seamlessly.

Placement and Maintenance

When the restoration is ready, you will return to the office so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before we attach your veneers with a powerful bonding agent. To keep them bright and protect the teeth we’ve attached them to, you should continue to brush and floss daily. We also urge people to cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and to also see us for checkups and cleanings every six months. We can keep an eye on your restoration and natural teeth, and also remove the harmful buildup of plaque and tartar that could threaten your smile and your new restorations.
