From discoloration to damage, this option can help you enjoy a completely new looking smile in as little as two visits. Let’s talk about the benefits of porcelain veneers.
What Does a Veneer Do?
A veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain that is placed on the front of the teeth, covering the visible portions to instantly change the overall appearance of your smile. The restoration can mask permanent teeth stains, the kind of discoloration that forms below the outer enamel and may not respond to many teeth whitening options. We can also close gaps between the teeth, lengthen teeth worn down due to teeth grinding, and even repair chips and cracks. If you have minor misalignment, we sometimes correct the appearance of your smile without relying on metal orthodontics.
Creating and Placing Them
Each one is custom-made to ensure a proper fit and an attractive appearance. To begin, we will remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth’s surface and take detailed impressions and measurements. We use the information we gather to begin designing and creating the veneer. Once we complete the restoration, you will return to the office so we can place them with a powerful bonding agent. We use the same material to anchor crowns, inlays, and onlays in place. The material we create them from, porcelain, is durable and able to absorb bite forces and pressure. The material also mimics the translucent material of tooth enamel and can even be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth.
Do They Require Routine Care?
Yes! Routine care helps protect the teeth they’re attached to from decay, infection, or gum disease. In addition, regular care helps keep them bright as well. You should continue to brush and floss daily to remove food particles and safeguard the overall health of your smile. We also suggest an office visit every few months so we can examine your smile and also remove all plaque and tartar. These visits help prevent discoloration, cavities, and poor periodontal health.
