Porcelain Veneers Could Makeover Your Smile

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about removing teeth stains from your smile. Our team can also use a unique cosmetic restoration to transform the shape and color of your teeth at the same time. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX, family dentist talks about how we makeover smiles with porcelain veneers.

The Cosmetic Concerns Our Veneers Address

Each porcelain veneer is placed onto the front of a tooth, instantly reshaping them and masking a multitude of cosmetic concerns. For example, our team can mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to traditional teeth whitening treatments. We can also address issues with the shape of the teeth and even repair minor damage. Placement has closed gaps between teeth and even corrected the appearance of minor misalignment so you have a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners in some cases. For many, this is essentially a smile makeover in only two visits with a single treatment option!

Creating Your Custom Cosmetic Restoration

Our team will always custom-make these for our patients, so they blend with the smile seamlessly and offer a balanced bite and optimal results. To get started, we will numb the tooth being treated and then remove a thin layer of enamel from then outside of the tooth. Doing so allows us to make room for the restoration. Our team will then gather detailed images and measurements of the tooth, which aids us in a lab setting as we design and craft your custom veneer. The porcelain material is translucent like tooth enamel and can be shaded to blend with your smile, while also absorbing daily bite forces with ease. When the restoration is ready, we will check the fit and make any last-minute adjustments necessary before we attach the restoration with a powerful bonding agent.

Keeping Your Veneers Beautiful

Our team wants to help you enjoy good oral health and results that make you feel proud of your smile. We have a few tips for keeping your veneers bright and in place, so you enjoy optimal smile beauty and health. You should brush and floss daily, and cut back on sugary foods and drinks with dark pigments, as well as tobacco products. We also recommend a visit every six months for a checkup and cleaning, so you can continue to avoid issues that could threaten smile stability and your new restoration!
