Porcelain veneers are cosmetic restorations, very thin shells of porcelain that can transform your smile. In fact, these can offer a conservative smile makeover in as little as two visits. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how we offer makeovers with our thin and custom porcelain veneers.
Creating a Thin Restoration
How do we create thin restorations to correct your cosmetic concerns? To begin, our team will conduct an examination to assess the cause and extent of your cosmetic issues. We then numb the teeth and gently remove a thin layer of outer enamel. Once we do, our team will take detailed digital images of the tooth, which we combine to create a 3D impression. In a dental lab setting, our team will employ these to design and fabricate your finished product. Our team is then ready to place your new veneers.
Placing Your Custom Veneers
When you return to the office, our team will check the fit and make any needed adjustments before we connect the veneer to your teeth with a powerful bonding agent. Being custom-made means they fit comfortably and provide a balanced bite as well. The porcelain material we use is very durable and can handle daily bite forces. For this reason, porcelain is often used to create durable crowns and even replacement teeth. The material is also color matched to blend with your smile seamlessly.
The Cosmetic Benefits
Once in place, we can use these to mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that usually don’t respond to teeth whitening treatments. We could also correct the appearance of misalignment, offering a straighter smile without the need for braces or aligners. These restorations can reshape malformed teeth or add length to worn down ones too. Placement could repair minor chips and cracks as well, and close embarrassing gaps between the teeth. For many, these essentially act as a smile makeover. We could also whiten teeth beforehand so they match your brightest smile, or use them in conjunction with Invisalign ® or bonding or contouring to completely transform your smile.
