How Do We Create Cosmetic Veneers?

If a patient comes to us with multiple esthetic concerns, we often offer a smile makeover using porcelain veneers. How do we create cosmetic veneers and how does placement transform smiles in Garland, TX? Find out more about porcelain veneers in today’s blog.

Smile Transformation in Two Visits

Creating and placing the restoration only takes about two visits. A veneer covers the front and sides of the tooth. We’ve used them to repair minor chips, lengthen worn down teeth, and address issues with a tooth’s shape. We also close gaps between the teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment. For patients with permanent teeth stains, the kind that don’t respond to teeth whitening, we may mask them using these custom-made restorations.

Placing Custom-Made Veneers

We first need to make room for them, which means we remove a small amount of outer enamel before taking detailed impressions. At a dental lab, the impressions will be employed to design and fabricate the restoration from porcelain, a strong material that looks like natural enamel. We may shade them to better match with the rest of your smile. Using a powerful bonding agent, we place them in the second visit.

Keeping Them Bright

How do you ensure your new cosmetic restorations stay bright and last for many years to come? We suggest routine homecare. You should brush your teeth twice daily for about two minutes each session. Flossing before going to bed is also essential. These actions help reduce the severity of plaque buildup, protecting the veneers from discoloration and harmful bacteria. Finally, be sure you take time to see us about once every six months for a checkup and cleaning. Routine care helps you enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come!
