What Makes Porcelain Veneers So Attractive?

When you have a smile in need of multiple cosmetic improvements, we could potentially accomplish this with a single treatment option. Porcelain veneers are thin and lifelike restorations that instantly transform your smile. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX, dentist talks about what makes porcelain veneers so attractive.

The Cosmetic Concerns We Address

When in place, each one will cover the front and sides of a tooth, which means we can correct a number of cosmetic issues at once. For example, we can mask the permanent teeth stains that could otherwise resist traditional teeth whitening treatments. We can fill gaps between teeth and even mask black triangle spaces between them. Our team can also lengthen worn down teeth, repair minor damage, and address misshapen teeth too. For some, our custom porcelain veneers could offer a smile makeover in as little as two visits.

The Custom Approach

Each one we place will be custom-made for your smile, which ensures not only a lifelike appearance that blends with the rest of the smile, but good bite balance and a comfortable fit too. To begin, we will examine your smile to see if veneers are right for you. If so, we will numb the teeth being treated and gently remove a thin layer of outer enamel, which makes room for the finished restoration. We take detailed digital images and measurements of the prepared tooth, which are used in a lab setting to design and craft the restoration.

Securing Your New Smile

The restoration is shaded to blend with your smile, and when complete, will be placed in a second visit. During this follow-up appointment, we will check the fit of your veneers and make some final adjustments to ensure a proper fit and a balanced bite. We then attach it with a powerful bonding agent, one that we also use to secure crowns and bridges firmly in place. You leave with a restored smile and a greater confidence in your appearance! To keep your restoration bright and ensure they can last for years to come, we will suggest daily care, such as brushing and flossing, a healthier diet, and more. We also recommend seeing our team for a checkup and cleaning, so we can monitor the restoration and also remove the harmful plaque and tartar buildup that could weaken the tooth we’ve attached your restoration to.
