When you have several issues with the appearance of your smile, we may prescribe porcelain veneers. These cosmetic restorations don’t just address a single specific issue. Instead, we can use them to address multiple imperfections with the shape and color of your smile! In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about placing porcelain veneers.
The Reasons You May Need Porcelain Repair
Porcelain veneers are very thin restorations, essentially shells we place over the front of each tooth. As a result, they instantly change the appearance of the teeth and allow us to correct a number of common cosmetic imperfections. For example, our team can lengthen teeth worn down by bruxism, or close gaps between the teeth. Our team can address minor damage and even address misshapen teeth too. Placement also masks permanent teeth stains, the type that may not respond to most teeth whitening procedures. We can even correct the appearance of minor misalignment so you enjoy a straighter-looking smile without the need for aligners or braces.
Creating and Placing a Custom Restoration
Each one will be custom-made to ensure not only a lifelike appearance, but a comfortable fit and a balanced bite too. To begin, our team will numb the teeth being treated and gently remove structure from the outside of them. Removing a thin layer makes room for your restoration! We then take detailed images and measurements of the teeth so we can design and fabricate them in a lab setting. The porcelain we craft them from will be shaded to match the rest of your smile. The material can also endure daily bite forces with ease.
When you return for a second visit, our team will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before we attach your finished veneers with a powerful bonding agent. Your new restoration could last for years to come with proper care and attention!
Our team could also combine them with other cosmetic treatments to provide a smile makeover. For example, we could whiten the teeth beforehand to ensure the finished product matches the rest of your smile. Our team could also reserve bonding and contouring for the side teeth, and use veneers for the most visible front-facing ones!
