In our last blog, we discussed how we use teeth whitening to brighten teeth. But what if we have a cosmetic treatment that could do more than brighten smiles? With porcelain veneers our team can transform the beauty and function of your smile, offering a smile makeover. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX, dentist discusses how we provide a new smile with veneers!
Crafting Custom Restorations
The key to a lifelike appearance and comfortable fit is creating each one specifically for your smile. To do so, we need to first remove enamel from the tooth and then take detailed impressions, images, and measurements. With this information, we begin crafting your new restorations in a dental lab setting. The porcelain we use to create them is stain-resistant, and can be tinted to blend with the rest of your smile. The material is also durable, meaning your restorations can absorb daily bite forces and pressure. In fact, for those reasons porcelain is often used in crowns, bridges, and implant restorations.
Placing Them and Keeping Them Bright
When we complete your new veneers, you will return to the office so we can place them with a powerful bonding against that secures them for many years to come. Routine care is needed to protect your restorations from discoloration and to also safeguard the teeth we attach veneers to from issues like tooth decay, infection, and gum disease. Care should include brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste, and flossing every evening before bed. You should see us every six months for a checkup and dental cleaning visit.
Placement covers the front and sides of each tooth, which instantly transforms the beauty of your smile. For example, our team can mask permanent discoloration that may be resistant to traditional teeth whitening treatments. We also correct the appearance of minor misalignment too. When in place, they also provide repair for minor chips and cracks, and help lengthen teeth worn down by issues like teeth grinding. We also close gaps between the teeth too, and reshape malformed portions of your smile as well. For a complete smile makeover, we could combine them with procedures like teeth whitening as well. If you have any questions about our lifelike porcelain veneers or any of our other cosmetic treatment options, then contact our team today. Let’s start 2021 with a brighter, healthier smile together!
