A smile says so much about a person. Healthy bright teeth can make one appear more confident, younger, and successful. The good news is this transformation can occur in just a few dental visits. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how we improve the beauty of your smile using one or more porcelain veneers.
What Are Veneers?
If you’ve dreamed of a more beautiful smile, veneers may be the solution for you. Porcelain veneers are known for their durability and resistance to staining. They are often preferred over crowns since more of the natural tooth can be preserved. They are specially designed to look like natural teeth by mimicking the translucency and light-reflecting properties of enamel.
The process often takes two visits. At your first visit, your tooth is prepped by removing a thin layer of enamel. Then impressions are taken and sent off to a lab. They design and create your custom restorations based on the specifications you and your dentist discussed. An aesthetically pleasing temporary material will be placed on your teeth while we wait for your new smile to be delivered back to our office. When they are ready, a strong dental adhesive will bond them to your natural teeth.
What Conditions Can They Solve?
At your cosmetic consultation, we can examine your teeth and discuss any concerns that you have. We partner with you to create your ideal smile. Veneers can transform your entire look by re-shaping the teeth, enlarging peg laterals, and even correcting misalignment. Intrinsic staining can make one appear as though they have poor dental hygiene due to stains that cannot be removed. With veneers, you can transform embarrassing stained teeth into a bright and healthy smile.
Caring For Your New Smile
Excellent oral hygiene is a must once your new veneers are in place. Brushing at least twice a day with flossing will keep your teeth and gums healthier. We recommend using an electric toothbrush and focusing on brushing the gingival margin with soft bristles. Maintaining six-month dental check-ups and cleanings will prevent tartar and stain from building on your beautiful smile. It will also allow the dentist to make sure your veneers are staying in top shape. By staying on top of preventative care, your veneers should last for years to come!
