Do you have issues with the shape and color of your teeth, and assume correcting them could mean multiple treatments and procedures? Well, we can often use one or multiple porcelain veneers to offer a smile makeover in just two sittings. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about the makeover potential of porcelain veneers.
How We Create and Place Your Veneers
Each restoration we create for your smile is custom-made. To begin, we will gently numb the tooth and then remove a thin layer of outer enamel, which makes room for the restoration. We then take detailed digital images of the tooth from multiple angles. We combine these to create a digital impression, one far more accurate than a traditional physical one. In a dental lab, we use this to design and craft your custom veneers. The porcelain material we use can be shaded to blend with your smile, and can also handle daily bite forces and pressures too. We then attach the completed restoration with a powerful bonding agent.
The Cosmetic Potential
Since they cover the front and sides of the teeth, they can offer a major cosmetic improvement. For example, we can mask permanent teeth stains, the type that could resist traditional teeth whitening. We can also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you obtain a straighter looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. Our team could also lengthen worn down tooth structure, repair minor chips and cracks and address misshapen teeth too. We could even close embarrassing gaps between the teeth!
Keeping Your Smile Shining
Once your new porcelain veneers are in place, you can take action to keep them bright and shining, and to also protect the teeth we’ve attached them too. For example, you should see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning visit, so we can monitor your smile and remove all harmful plaque and tartar. You can also limit plaque and tartar by brushing and flossing your teeth daily, and also cutting back on the amount of sugar and starch in your diet. If you have any questions about how we create and place veneers, or about how to keep them bright and strong for years to come, then contact our team today to learn more. We’re ready to transform your smile this summer, so give us a call to schedule your consultation.
