When you have several cosmetic imperfections with the shape and color of your teeth, or with issues like minor misalignment or gaps, then you could benefit from porcelain veneers. These custom cosmetic restorations can offer a smile makeover in just two visits! In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about porcelain veneers.
Creating Custom Porcelain Veneers
Every veneer we provide for our patients has been custom-made, created for their smile specifically. To do so, our team will first administer a numbing agent to ensure you’re comfortable as we gently remove outer enamel from the tooth to make room for your restoration. Our team then takes detailed digital images and measurements of the prepared tooth, which we use to design and fabricate the finished product. The porcelain we craft them from can handle daily bite forces and pressures like natural enamel can, and the material is also translucent like enamel. We will color match it to blend with your smiles seamlessly.
Applying Them to Your Teeth
When the final product is ready, our team will attach the porcelain veneers with the teeth with a powerful bonding agent. This can ensure the restoration stays in place for years to come. You can also maintain good oral hygiene to protect not only the brightness of your restorations, but the tooth or teeth we’ve attached them to. You should brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, for two minutes each session. You also need to floss every evening before you brush the second time. Try to avoid tobacco products, and eat a diet with vitamins C and D, cutting back on sugar and starch.
We can use them to provide instant repair for minor chips or cracks, or to lengthen worn down teeth or even reshape malformed tooth structures too. Placement can fill embarrassing gaps between the teeth and also mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that could resist discoloration. We can even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. We could also whiten teeth beforehand so your results match your brightest smile.
If you have any questions about how we transform the beauty of your smile in just two visits, then contact our team today. With a cosmetic consultation, we can see if porcelain veneers are the right option for you.
