Have you ever heard of dental veneers? When placed, these very thin restorations can be used to completely transform the appearance of your smile. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at three every big benefits offered by porcelain veneers. Should you try these thin and lifelike restorations?
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- Placement Only Takes Two Visits: That’s right, we can completely alter the shade and shape of your teeth in as little as two visits. The procedure begins with preparation: We will remove a thin layer of outer enamel to make room for the restorations. We then take detailed impressions, which will be used in a dental lab to design and create the completed veneers. The patient then returns for a second visit, during which we check the fit and make any necessary adjustments, Finally, we place the veneers using a powerful bonding agent.
- Natural Looking Appearance: They will cover the front and sides of the tooth. They are made from porcelain, a material with a translucent appearance, much like natural tooth enamel. We can also color-match the restoration to ensure it blends better with the rest of your smile. The completed restoration will not only look natural, but will be stain-resistant and able to withstand powerful bite forces.
- Addresses Multiple Cosmetic Concerns: We can use them to correct a number of different esthetic concerns. For example, we can repair minor damage, reshape malformed teeth, and correct the appearance of minor misalignment. We can also use them to mask permanent discoloration. These are teeth stains that form below the enamel and may not respond to professional teeth whitening systems. Finally, we can also close nay gaps between your teeth. If you have any questions about the benefits of our restorations, or about placing them, then please contact our office today.
