When you need to address multiple esthetic issues with your teeth, you may consider our porcelain veneers. These cosmetic restorations can instantly change the shape and color of your teeth. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how we can transform your smile with our cosmetic restorations.
The Cosmetic Capability of Custom Veneers
Since they cover the front and sides of the teeth, they can offer major transformation instantly and address a wide array of cosmetic concerns. For example, placement could be used to repair minor chips and cracks, or to lengthen the teeth worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding). We could also use them to hide embarrassing gaps between teeth and to reshoe malformed teeth too. We’ve used them to also mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that cannot be removed with teeth whitening alone. For minor cases of misalignment, we could use them to correct the appearance of the teeth, avoiding the need for braces or aligners to have an even looking smile.
Creating Your Cosmetic Restorations
The key to their success is their custom nature. Each one we make has been custom-made for our patients. To begin, we will numb the tooth or teeth receiving restoration, and then remove a thin layer of outer enamel to make room for the porcelain veneers. We then take detailed images from multiple angles, and use them to create a 3D impression. In a dental lab setting, we use the impression to design and craft the finished product from porcelain. This material can absorb daily bite forces with ease, and is also translucent like actual enamel. We shade them to blend seamlessly with your smile. We may even offer whitening to ensure they reflect your brightest possible smile.
When the veneers are ready, you will return to the office so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. We then attach them to your teeth with a powerful bonding agent, keeping them in place with ease.
Keeping Them Bright
With proper care and attention, you can keep them bright for years to come and also protect the teeth we’ve attached them to from the impacts of tooth decay or gum disease. You should brush and floss daily, cut back on sugar and starch, and of course, see our team every six months for a checkup and cleaning visit. If you have any questions, then give us a call today.
