When you have multiple issues with the beauty of your smile, the you may desire a smile makeover. However, wouldn’t such a process require multiple procedures? In today’s blog, your Des Moines, IA, dentist will explain how we help reinvent your smile with long-lasting porcelain veneers, in only two visits.
The Benefits of Placing Veneers
A porcelain veneer covers the front and sides of each teeth, which means instantly altering the shape and color of the tooth. We can use them to provide repair for minor chips and cracks, or to provide length to teeth worn down due to issues like teeth grinding. Placement has help close embarrassing gaps between the teeth, including those black triangle spaces. If you have uneven teeth, we could correct the appearance of minor misalignment too. Veneers are also correct misshapen or malformed teeth. As you can see, they essentially offer a smile makeover in as little as two visits!
Crafting a Custom-Made Restoration
Ensuring a lifelike appearance, comfortable fit, and a balanced bite means we custom-make each one we place. To start, our team removes a thin layer of outer enamel from the teeth. Next, we take detailed digital images and measurements, which we use in a dental lab setting to begin designing and crafting your new cosmetic restorations. The porcelain we create them with is translucent, just like tooth enamel, and can be tinted to match the color of surrounding teeth. We may even whiten your teeth beforehand to ensure your restorations blend with your brightest possible smile. Porcelain is also stain-resistant too, which helps your newly restored teeth stay bright. The material also absorbs daily bite forces!
Placement and Care
You return to the office when your restorations are ready, so our team can place them with a powerful bonding agent. From there, routine care helps protect the teeth we attach them to, and keep the restoration bright as well. You should brush twice a day and floss every night without exception, and see us every six months for an exam and thorough dental cleaning. Try to avoid drinks with dark pigments and tannins, and enjoy a healthier diet. These actions ensure your veneers last for year to come, and protect the rest of your smile too!
