leawood veneersWhen you have more than one cosmetic issue with the appearance of your smile, then you may need our custom porcelain veneers. These thin dental restorations can help tackle more than one esthetic issue at once, offering stunning results in two visits. In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS, dentist talks about our porcelain veneers.

The Potential Of Your Custom Veneers

When we place these veneers, they cover the front and sides of the tooth, which means instant improvement for issues like discoloration or misshapen teeth. Placement can also repair minor damage, lengthen worn down teeth, and even fill unsightly gaps between the teeth. If you have misalignment, this could correct the appearance of minor cases so you have an even-looking smile after only one to two visits, no braces or aligners needed. For many, these can offer a full smile makeover in only two appointments!

How We Create and Place Them

To begin, we will carefully examine your smile to see if these are the right choice for you. If so, we will numb the teeth being treated and then remove a thin layer of outer enamel to make room for the restorations. Our team then takes detailed digital images and measurements of the teeth, so we can design and craft them in a lab setting. We create them from porcelain because this material is very strong and can handle daily bite forces. In addition, we can color match it to blend with your smile, and offer a lifelike appearance. When you return for the second visit, we will check the fit and if needed, make some final adjustments, we then secure them with the same powerful bonding material we use to secure crowns and bridges in place.

Tips for Keeping Your Restorations Bright

Once your veneers are in place, you can take steps to help them stay bright and safeguard the teeth we’ve connected them to. For example, be sure you brush and floss daily to control plaque buildup, and see us for cleanings and checkups every six months too. Try to limit how much sugar and starch is in your diet too, and avoid tobacco products. These actions not only help keep your restorations bright and in place, they also protect your natural teeth from issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
