One or more custom porcelain veneers could be used to offer your smile a much needed makeover, addressing multiple issues at once. In today’s blog, your Greenville, TX, dentist will explain how we transform the beauty of your smile, including the color and shape of each tooth, in just two visits.
The Creation of a Veneer
Being custom-made not only ensures a proper fit, but a comfortable one too. To begin, we will remove a thin layer of outer enamel from each tooth receiving a restoration. Next, we take detailed impressions and images of these teeth, which we employ to design and fabricate the veneers. Each one will be made from porcelain, which not only mimics the translucent appearance of outer enamel, but can be tinted to blend with the rest of your smile. The material also absorbs daily bite forces too!
Placement and Transformation
When your thin restoration is ready, we place it onto the front-facing side of each tooth, covering the fonts and sides and instantly transforming the overall beauty of your smile. We may use them to mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that could remain despite teeth whitening treatment. We also lengthen teeth worn down due to teeth grinding, and repair minor chips and cracks. We address misshapen or malformed teeth, close gaps between them, and even correct the appearance of your smile’s alignment, offering an alternative to braces for people with minor misalignment.
Keeping Your Restored Tooth Bright
The teeth we attach them to will still be vulnerable to issues like tooth decay and gum disease, which could cause your tooth to become lost or develop painful complications. To protect these teeth, and keep the restoration itself bright, we suggest taking time to brush your teeth for two minutes when you wake and again before bed. You should use a fluoride toothpaste when you do! Make time to floss too, moving the tape up and down each side of every tooth and dipping below the gum line to extract any trapped particles. Finally, be sure to see our team every six months for a checkup and cleaning, so we can monitor your smile and remove plaque buildup, to keep your smile (and your cosmetic restoration) strong and beautiful! If you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule a cosmetic consultation to se if you need one, then contact our team today.
