What if we had a single treatment option that could provide the benefits of teeth whitening, dental bonding, and dental contouring all at once? In today’s blog, your Independence, MO, dentist is looking at the benefits of creating and placing custom-fitted porcelain veneers, and what the design and fabrication process involves.
Smile Transformation Options
A veneer actually covers the front facing sides of the teeth, which instantly improves the beauty of each individual tooth. For example, if you have permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to traditional teeth whitening, we can instantly mask them. In addition, placement could also provide repairs for minor chips or cracks, or for teeth worn down due to teeth grinding. If you have misshapen or malformed teeth, we can correct them. We also close unsightly gaps between the teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment. In as little as one to two visits, you can enjoy a stunning, vibrant smile.
Creating Your New Veneers
To ensure a comfortable fit and a more lifelike appearance, we will need to custom-make each one. To begin, we remove the outer enamel to make room for them. Next, we take a series of detailed impressions and measurements. We use these details to plan and craft them. The porcelain we create them with can absorb daily bite forces, and can also be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth. After we create them, we check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then place them with a powerful bonding agent.
Keeping Them Bright and Durable
To ensure they last for many years to come and stay bright, you need to care for them daily as you would your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing each day helps remove the food particles that could cause plaque buildup. Plaque not only stains them, but increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, which threatens the teeth we’ve attached your new cosmetic restorations to. We also recommend a visit to our office every six months, so we can examine your smile and clean it as well, steps that help protect your restorations and your natural teeth too!
