We’ve looked at teeth whitening, and single visit bonding and contouring, but we have another custom treatment to brighten teeth and improve smile beauty. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist explains how we use thin porcelain veneers to improve the beauty of the smile in just two visits!
The Value of Porcelain Veneers
Unlike other others, this one is designed specifically to instantly alter the color and shape of the tooth, covering the front and sides upon placement. The material used to fabricate them is also very strong and durable, often used in crowns and prosthetics too. Porcelain is not only translucent like actual tooth enamel, but can be tinted to match the color of surrounding teeth. For that reason, this is one of the most lifelike cosmetic options we provide, and one capable of offering a smile makeover in two visits.
Crafting Your Custom Restorations
The key to the lifelike appearance is the custom-made nature of each restoration. This also helps preserve bite balance and protect your smile from complications and a poor fit. We begin by administering a local anesthetic and then removing a thin layer of outer enamel. Next, we take detailed digital impressions and images of the teeth. The images enable our team to design each veneer and craft them in a dental lab setting. When you return to the office, our team will check the fit and then attach them with a powerful bonding agent.
Once in place, we could use them to mask permanent discoloration that wouldn’t otherwise respond to teeth whitening. We also offer repair for minor damage, lengthen worn down teeth, correct the appearance of minor misalignment, and close embarrassing gaps between the teeth too. All in as little as two visits!
Keeping Veneers Strong and Bright
The teeth we attach them to are still vulnerable to issues like infection or gum disease, so routine care not only protects the color of your new restorations, but keeps them in place for decades to come as well. Be sure you brush and floss daily, cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and make time to see our team for a checkup and cleaning at least once every six months. If you have any questions about veneers, or if you would like to schedule a cosmetic appointment, then contact our team today. Let’s start 2021 with your best possible smile!
