Cosmetic dentistry helps improve the beauty of your smile, with treatments like teeth whitening used to brighten teeth and offer improvement. But with one procedure, we can essentially transform your smile. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how we create and place our custom porcelain veneers.
The Possible Benefits of Your Restorations
Porcelain veneers are a unique and wonderful cosmetic treatment that can offer many patients a smile makeover in as little as two visits. Each one is a thin shell of porcelain, custom-made for your smile. They cover the front and sides of each tooth, which instantly alters the shade and shape. For example, we can use them to mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that won’t respond to most teeth whitening treatments. Veneers also repair minor damage and even reshape malformed teeth too. We can close embarrassing gaps between the teeth too, and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment so you enjoy a straighter looking smile without braces or aligners. We lengthen worn down teeth too!
Creating and Placing These Restorations
How do we create and place them? Our team will begin by numbing the teeth receiving them and then gently removing a thin layer of outer enamel to make room for the finished products. We then take detailed digital images of the teeth from several angles, which we use to create an impression. The impression is used in a dental lab setting to design and craft your new veneers. We then shade them to blend with your smile seamlessly, matching the surrounding teeth. When they’re ready, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before we attach them with a powerful bonding agent. In two visits, we can transform your smile!
We could also combine them with other cosmetic treatments to provide a smile makeover. For example, we can whiten the teeth beforehand so your veneers match your brightest possible smile. We can use bonding and contouring to address the less visible side and rear teeth, reserving the restorations for the front facing ones. For major misalignment, we could also employ Invisalign® clear aligners. If you have any questions about tackling your cosmetic concerns with porcelain veneers, then contact our team today to learn more. We would love to help you transform your smile in only two visits, so you have a smile you never hesitate to show off!
