How Veneers Enhance Your Smile

When you dream about a smile makeover that instantly changes the appearance of your smile, then you should talk to our team. With porcelain veneers, we can transform your smile in just two visits, taking on multiple imperfections at once. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist talks about enhancing smiles with our custom veneers.

The Cosmetic Improvements Veneers Offer

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are placed onto the front of the teeth. Once in place, these will instantly change the shape and color of the tooth, so we can correct multiple cosmetic issues at once. For example, we can mask teeth stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening, or even fill gaps between the teeth. Placement can repair minor damage, correct misshapen teeth, and lengthen structures worn down by factors like teeth grinding. Our team can even use them to correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a more even-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. For some, this is a total smile transformation!

How We Create and Place Them

To get started, our team will numb the teeth being treated and then gently remove a thin layer of enamel from them. Once we’re done, we will be able to take detailed images and impressions, which are used in a lab setting to design and fabricate your custom restorations. The porcelain material is translucent like enamel and can be color matched to blend with the otoh. The material can also absorb daily bite forces and provide a durable chewing surface too. When your restorations are ready, you will return to the office. We will check the fit and if needed, make final adjustments. Finally, we attach them with the same powerful bonding material we use to secure crowns or bridges in place.

Protecting Your Oral Health

You can take action to keep your veneers bright and in place, and also safeguard your natural teeth too. You should brush twice a day every day for two minutes, and use a fluoride toothpaste too. Be sure to floss in the evening before you brush that second time too. Try to limit the amount of sugar and starch in your diet and avoid tobacco products. Finally, be sure you see our team for a checkup and cleaning visit every six months, so we can keep your veneers and natural teeth shining.

If you have any questions about how we create and place our porcelain veneers, or about any of our other cosmetic treatments, such as professional teeth whitening, then contact our team today to learn more.
