Porcelain veneers allow your Garland, TX, dentist to essentially makeover your smile in only two visits, addressing a wide array of common esthetic issues at once. In today’s blog, we’re going to talk about how we design and craft these restorations, and look at the different cosmetic concerns we can mask with these esthetic restorations!
Our Porcelain Veneers
What is a veneer? Essentially, these are very thin shells of porcelain that we place onto the front-facing sides of each tooth. The porcelain we craft them from is strong and durable, able to absorb daily bite forces, and contains stain-resistant properties. The material can also be color-matched to blend with the smile, and is translucent like natural enamel. As a result, the finished product blends seamlessly with your smile, and has the potential to last for decades to come with proper care and attention!
Creating Custom Restorations
To begin, we will administer a numbing agent around the teeth being prepared. Next, we gently remove a thin layer of enamel from them and take detailed digital images. The images and measurements we take will be used in a dental lab to design and create the custom restorations. When they’re ready, you will return to the office so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Finally, we attach them with a powerful bonding agent. When you leave for the second time, you do so with a transformed smile! To keep them bright and protect teeth we’ve attached the veneers to, you should brush and floss daily, enjoy a healthier diet, and see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning visit.
When we place them, they instantly brighten the teeth, making them a great choice to address intrinsic discoloration. These are teeth stains that form beneath the enamel and that may not respond to teeth whitening. We also reshape malformed teeth and repair minor chips and cracks. The restorations add lengthen to teeth worn down by grinding and clenching too. Placement could also help mask spaces between the teeth, including those black triangle spaces. For those with minor misalignment, we could correct the appearance of the misalignment, providing an alternative to braces or aligners.
