Did you know that with a simple dental restoration, we have the ability to enhance one or more of your teeth? Porcelain veneers allow us to improve the beauty of your smile in only two visits, addressing multiple esthetic problems. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist talks about our porcelain veneers.
How Do Veneers Help?
A veneer is a restoration we place onto the front facing side of your tooth, instantly covering the front and sides. Which means we can also instantly transform the appearance of a tooth. When in place, they repair minor chips and cracks, and reshoe malformed or worn-down teeth. We also close gaps between your teeth too, and mask the permanent teeth stains that could resist teeth whitening. If you have minor misalignment, we could use them to correct the appearance of minor misalignment too! For many, this is essentially a smile makeover in only two visits.
Creating Custom Cosmetic Restoration
We craft them from porcelain, as this material is very strong and durable, absorbing bite forces like actual tooth structure. The material can also be color-matched to offer a more lifelike appearance. We start by administering a local anesthetic to ensure you’re comfortable as we gently remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth. Next, we take detailed digital images of the tooth, which we use to create a 3D impression. In a dental lab, we then design your custom restorations. When we’re done, you return for placement!
When you arrive, we will check the fit and if needed, make some final adjustments to your restoration. We then attach it with a powerful bonding agent. This keeps your veneer in place and could allow it to stay there for years to come. To keep it bright and prevent loss due to issues that impact the teeth we attach it to, like decay and gum disease, you need to maintain good oral hygiene. You should brush twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste, and also floss every evening too. Try to avoid too much sugar, and don’t use tobacco products either. Finally, be sure to see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning. If you have any questions about transforming your smile with one or more of our porcelain veneers, then contact our team today to learn more.
