We have a number of cosmetic treatment options available to help improve your smile’s beauty. However, one particular procedure can actually transform your smile, offering a smile makeover in as little as two visits. How do veneers improve the appearance of your teeth?
Creating and Placing Veneers
In order to place one, we first need to prepare the teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. We then take detailed impressions of the tooth, which will be used at a dental lab to design and create the restoration. Once complete, we place the restoration onto the tooth using a powerful bonding agent. The veneer then covers the front and sides of the tooth, completely transforming the smile’s appearance.
Addressing Multiple Cosmetic Problems
We can place them to mask permanent teeth stains, which may not otherwise respond to teeth whitening. We can also repair minor damage or address worn down or misshapen teeth. We’ve used them to also close gaps between teeth or correct the appearance of minor alignment issues. They can correct a number of cosmetic concerns, transforming your smile.
Keeping Your Restorations Bright
What steps can you take to ensure your new restoration stays bright? While the porcelain material we make them from is stain-resistant, you still need to take proper care of your smile. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every night before bed can help prevent plaque buildup. You should also have your teeth cleaned every six months. If you have any questions or concerns about porcelain veneers, or if you think your smile could benefit from one, then contact our team today.
