Could Veneers Provide A Smile Makeover?

When you have concerns about the appearance of your smile, you may assume a smile makeover means several procedures and tons of visits. But you may be surprised to learn that porcelain veneers can mask multiple cosmetic imperfections at once! In today’s blog, your Richardson, TX, dentist talks about the makeover potential of porcelain veneers.

The Cosmetic Potential of Veneers

Each veneer is a very thin restoration made from porcelain, and designed specifically for your smile. When in place, they cover the front and sides of your teeth to instantly transform them and mask common imperfections. For example, our team can use veneers to mask the teeth stains that could resist traditional whitening treatments. We can also repair minor damage and even address misshapen teeth too. We can lengthen structure worn down by teeth grinding, and close embarrassing gaps between teeth, including black triangle spaces. Our team can also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have an even-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners.

Creating Your Custom Dental Restorations

As we mentioned above, each one will be custom-made for your smile to ensure a proper fit, a balanced bite, and a lifelike appearance too. To begin, we will numb the teeth being treated so we can completely remove the thin layer, making room for your new restoration. Next, we will gather detailed digital images of the teeth from multiple angles, so we can create a 3D impression and design your new restorations with precision and accuracy. The porcelain material can handle daily bite forces and pressures, and be color matched to offer a more natural appearance, so you can smile with confidence.

Attaching Them to Your Smile

When your new restorations are ready, you will return to the office so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to them. We then attach them to the front of the teeth with a powerful bonding agent. With proper care and attention, they can stay bright and in place for years to come. To keep them strong, we suggest brushing and flossing daily, cutting back on the sugar and starch in your diet, and avoiding tobacco products. Be sure you see our team for a regular checkup and cleaning visit every six months as well! We want to ensure you obtain results that make you feel confident, and help your smile shine. If you have any questions about placing porcelain veneers, talk to our team today so you can start summer with a shining smile!
