Veneers are different from crowns and fillings. They are designed solely to improve the appearance of your smile, helping you obtain a smile you’ll be proud to show the world. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at how porcelain veneers can improve smile beauty.
Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
Question: What do they look like?
Answer: The restorations are made from porcelain, a strong material that is also stain-resistant. We can shade the material to better match surrounding teeth, and porcelain also offers the same translucent appearance of natural tooth enamel. For these reasons, veneers are a perfect choice to offer cosmetic improvement for our patients’ smiles.
Question: How do you place them?
Answer: We first need to make room for them. We will gently remove a thin layer of tooth structure. Then we take detailed impressions, which will be used in a dental lab to create your new restorations. Once we finish them, we apply them with a powerful bonding agent. They fit over the front and sides of the teeth, offering lifelike tooth improvement.
Question: What cosmetic problems can they address?
Answer: We can use them address problem with the shape of the tooth, such as chips, malformed teeth, or worn-down teeth. We can also mask permanent teeth stains (the kind that may not respond to traditional teeth whitening) and close gaps between the teeth. We’ve even used them address the appearance of minor misalignment.
Question: Can I take steps to keep them bright?
Answer: Yes! They are actually easy to care for. Keeping them bright means routine brushing and flossing, as well as making time for dental cleanings every six months. Cutting back on sugary foods and beverages with dark pigments can also keep them strong and bright. If you have any questions about porcelain restorations, then please contact our team today.
