Porcelain veneers are very thin restorations that we use to correct common cosmetic issues, from teeth stains to gaps between the teeth. Each one is custom-made, and could help you obtain a brand-new looking smile. In today’s blog, your Irving, TX, dentist talks about the benefits of our porcelain veneers and how we place them.
The Cosmetic Benefits Offered
How do our veneers improve your smile’s appearance? Each one is very thin and covers the front and sides of the teeth, instantly repairing them. At once, this masks any teeth stains, particularly the permanent ones that resist teeth whitening. We also close gaps between the teeth, correct misshapen ones, and even add length to worn down portions of tooth structure. The restoration can also address bite imbalance and correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter looking smile without the need for braces or aligners! For many, this is essentially a smile makeover in only two visits!
How We Create and Place Your Cosmetic Restoration
How do we transform your smile with veneer placement? To begin, we will numb your tooth so you’re comfortable as we gently remove a thin layer of outer enamel, making room for your new restoration. Our team next takes detailed digital images of the teeth from multiple angles, and then we combine them to create a 3D impression. In a dental lab setting, we will use the impression to design and fabricate them. Each one is made from thin porcelain layers, and is shaded to blend with your tooth and offer a natural appearance. You then return to the office so we can check the fit and make any adjustments before we attach it with a powerful bonding agent. You now have a stunning new smile!
Keeping Your Smile Bright
Once they’re in place, you can take action to ensure your new restorations stay bright and last for years to come. You should take time to brush your teeth for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste, and floss every evening. Also, try to avoid tobacco products or drinks with dark pigments. These actions not only fight stains, but protect the teeth from factors like tooth decay and gum disease, which could threaten your new restorations.
