While they can offer instant smile transformation, some people worry that veneers won’t look natural, standing out against the rest of the smile. Fortunately, we take steps to ensure our Des Moines, IA, patients enjoy lifelike smile improvement with our custom-made porcelain veneers.
Getting Your Smile Ready
In order to ensure they look natural, we need to make room for them. We will remove a thin layer of outer tooth enamel and then take detailed impressions. The impressions will be used to design and create the restorations. Each one is custom-made to make sure they look natural, reflect your facial structure, and match surrounding teeth. We feel no one should be able to tell you have veneers.
Creating Lifelike Restorations
At a dental lab, porcelain will be employed in the creation of the veneers. Porcelain not only mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel, but also offers stain-resistance and durability. We also shade the material to ensure it matches the rest of the smile. The complete restoration will cover the tooth and immediately alter the appearance of the smile. Once we complete them, we will invite you back to the office.
Placement and Maintenance
Once you return to the office, we will make sure the restorations fit properly. We may make a few adjustments to ensure a better fit. We then place the completed veneer with a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, we can mask teeth stains, close gaps between teeth, reshape malformed or damaged teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and even correct the appearance of minor alignment issues. If you have any questions about the placement process, or if you think your smile could benefit from lifelike restorations, then contact our team today. We can help you obtain a beautiful new smile!
