Porcelain Veneers Could Offer A New Smile

When you have more than one cosmetic concern with your smile, you may need to receive a cosmetic dental restoration! With porcelain veneers, our team can offer major smile improvement, with results that can last years to come. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX, dentist talks about placing dental veneers.

The Cosmetic Benefits of Custom Veneers

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that cover the front of your teeth and offer major changes to the shape and color of the teeth instantly, which is why we can use them to make smile makeovers possible in just two visits. Placement could mask permanent teeth stains that could otherwise resist teeth whitening, or even correct the appearance of your uneven teeth so you avoid the need for braces or aligners. Placement could also repair minor chips and cracks, lengthen worn down teeth, and even reshape malformed structures too. We could also close gaps between your teeth too!

Creating Your Cosmetic Restorations

We don’t offer one-size-fits-all options, instead we custom-make them specifically for your smile! To begin, our team will carefully examine your teeth and then gently remove a thin layer of outer enamel from the teeth. Afterward, we will take detailed digital images of the teeth from multiple angles, so we can design and craft your completed restorations in a single visit. The porcelain materials can handle daily bite forces and pressures, and we can shade it to blend with your smile too. When we complete them, you will return to the office so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. We then connect them with a powerful bonding agent.

Keeping Them Bright

To keep your new cosmetic restoration bright and also keep them in place by protecting the teeth we’ve attached them to, you need good oral hygiene habits. You should take time to brush for two minutes when you wake up and again before bed, and also use a fluoride toothpaste when you do. Flossing before bed is crucial too, and you should avoid too much sugar in your diet. Also, avoid tobacco products! You should see us for a checkup and cleaning too, so we can keep an eye on your cosmetic restoration and ensure it’s durable and bright, and so we can use a cleaning to remove all plaque and tartar that could treat the health and beauty of your tooth.
