When you have several cosmetic issues with your smile’s appearance, you may assume you require multiple treatments. But what if we have a single treatment to make major improvements to your tooth’s shape and color? In today’s blog, your Irving, TX, dentist talks about the benefits of porcelain veneers. For many, these could offer dramatic improvements, especially a smile makeover, in as little as two visits.
Creating Your Custom Restorations
Every veneer we create and place will be custom-made for your smile, ensuring a proper fit, good bite balance, and of course, a lifelike appearance. To begin, we will numb the teeth receiving them and then gently remove a thin layer of enamel from them. We then take detailed digital images of the teeth, which we use to create the 3D impressions that allow us to fabricate the custom veneers in a lab setting. When you return to the office, we can place the completed restorations.
Placing Your New Restorations
Each veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain, a strong material that can absorb daily bite forces and pressure. We shade the restoration to blend with the rest of your smile. We may even whiten your teeth beforehand so it matches your brightest possible smile. When you return to the office, we will check the fit to make sure they don’t require minor adjustments before we attach them with a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, they have the potential to last for several years, providing quality restoration and smile improvement. Good oral hygiene habits can keep them bright and strong, and protect your natural teeth in the process.
Once in place, these can reshape teeth to correct malformed ones or repair minor chips and cracks. We can lengthen the teeth worn down by grinding and clenching. Our team can use them to mask permanent teeth stains that may not be easily removed with whitening. Placement could also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you can avoid the need for braces or aligners. Veneers can also close embarrassing gaps between your teeth too. For a smile makeover, we could combine these with treatments like teeth whitening, bonding, and contouring, transforming your smile in as little as two visits.
