Do you have serious teeth stains or issues with the shape of your teeth? If so, then you could benefit from a smile makeover with porcelain veneers. These custom dental restorations can provide treatment for multiple concerns all at once. In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS, dentist talks about custom porcelain veneers.
The Benefits of Placing Cosmetic Restorations
Porcelain veneers are very thin restorations that we place onto the front facing sides of the teeth. Each one reshapes the front and sides of the teeth, so we can take on multiple cosmetic issues at once. The porcelain material can handle the bites forces and pressures that natural enamel can, and we will color match the material to blend with your smile. When in place, we can mask permanent teeth stains, fill gaps between the teeth, and repair minor chips and cracks. Our team can correct misshapen teeth and lengthen worn down structures too. Placement could even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you obtain a straighter-looking smile!
Creating and Placing Them
Each veneer will be custom-made for your smile. To get started, we will gently numb the tooth or teeth receiving them, and then remove a thin layer of tooth enamel. We take detailed digital images of the prepared teeth, and use the information gathered to design and fabricate your veneers in a lab setting. When they’re ready, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before we place them with a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, these will instantly reshape the teeth and mask issues with the shade too.
Protecting Your New Restorations
You can take steps to not only keep the veneers bright, but protect the teeth we’ve attached them to, so your restorations can last for years to come! Be sure you brush in the morning and again at night for at least two minutes, and to floss every evening too. These actions help protect the teeth from factors like decay or infection, or even gum disease. You also need to see our team for a checkup and cleaning every six months so we monitor your new restorations and watch out for possible signs of trouble. If you have any questions about how we transform your smile with one or more porcelain veneers, or about any of our other cosmetic treatment options, such as teeth whitening, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you and your family enjoy beautiful smiles that look great and help you feel confident!
