What Makes Veneers A Great Choice For Smile Makeovers?

If you live in Des Moines, IA, and want a smile makeover, we may suggest placing porcelain veneers. These thin restorations help our patients obtain a stunning new smile, addressing multiple cosmetic issues in as little as two visits. What makes them such a great choice for a smile makeover?

Natural Looking Restorations

We use lifelike materials to create them. Porcelain not only mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel, but we also shade the material to better match the rest of your smile. Once in place, they should look natural and reflect your unique facial structure.

How Do They Improve Smiles?

The restoration covers the front and sides of the tooth. Which means we can use them to repair chipped teeth, reshape malformed teeth, and even lengthen worn down teeth. Veneers also correct the appearance of minor misalignment and help close gaps between the teeth. For those with permanent teeth stains, which don’t usually respond to teeth whitening treatments, we can mask them with our thin restorations. We use veneers to address a wide array of cosmetic and restorative concerns.

How Long Do They Last?

With proper care and attention, your new restorations could last for decades. First, you need to take steps to protect them from harmful bacteria, which could lead to decay, infection, and periodontal problems. You should brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time. We also urge you to floss before going to bed. While brushing and flossing limit how much plaque accumulates, only a six-month dental cleaning actually removes all plaque, protecting your smile and your new veneers.
