When you have several cosmetic imperfections, then you may assume multiple procedures could be necessary. But what if a single treatment could reshape teeth and mask stains? In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how we offer stunning smiles with our porcelain veneers.
The Factors Veneers Mask
Porcelain veneers are very thin dental restorations that cover the front and sides of the teeth. These are designed specifically to handle cosmetic concerns, improving the overall beauty of your teeth. They can also help improve bite balance and address issues with the shape of a tooth that could lead complications down the road for your oral health. Our team can use them to mask piercement teeth stains, fill gaps between teeth, and correct worn down or misshapen teeth. Placement can help improve the appearance of the alignment of your teeth too, so you correct the appearance of minor misalignment without the need for braces. For some, these offer a smile makeover.
Creating Your Cosmetic Restoration
Each one we place for our patients has been custom-made, which helps ensure a lifelike appearance and a proper fit. To get started, we will numb the tooth being treated so we can gently remove a thin layer of outer enamel, which makes room for your completed dental restoration. We then take detailed digital images and impressions of the tooth, which we use in a lab setting to design and fabricate your custom veneers. When your veneers are complete, our team will then check the fit and make sure last minor adjustments are not necessary before we attach the finished product using a powerful bonding agent. With proper care and attention, your new restorations can last for years to come, providing lifelike and quality restoration.
Maintaining Your New Restorations
Routine care is necessary to keep them bright, and protect the teeth we’ve attached them to, so you avoid issues that could threaten them, like tooth decay, infection, or gum disease. The same care also safeguards your natural teeth! You should brush for two minutes twice a day and floss every evening, and use a fluoride toothpaste when you do. We also recommend cutting back on sugar and starch in your diet, and also see our team for a checkup and cleaning, so we can monitor your smile for signs of trouble, and also cleaning your teeth before the harmful buildup that could threaten your smile.
