What if a single treatment could address problems with a tooth’s color and shape, as well as the appearance of alignment? With porcelain veneers, your Independence, MO, dentist targets and addresses a wide array of esthetic concerns, helping people in our community obtain a stunning new smile in just two visits!
When Is a Veneer Right for Me?
Since a porcelain veneer is placed onto the front-facing side of your teeth, we use them to correct a wide array of esthetic concerns. They often help lengthen worn down tooth structure and provide repair for minor cracks and chips. They aid in closing gaps between the teeth, and help address problems with misshapen ones as well. For people with minor misalignment, we can help correct the appearance of your smile, so you won’t need orthodontic treatment. If you have permanent teeth stains, the kind that form beneath the enamel and may not respond to whitening, then we can mask them instantly!
How Do You Place One?
Each one is custom-made for your smile, and the process starts with making room for them. We remove a thin layer of tooth enamel from the tooth and then take detailed impressions. We use the impressions to design and craft the veneers from porcelain. Not only does this material contain stain-resistant properties and the ability to be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth, but porcelain can absorb bite forces and pressure too! After we create your veneers, you return for a second visit so we can check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then place your new cosmetic restorations with a powerful bonding agent.
Keeping Your New Smile Bright
Daily care helps keep them bright and avoid discoloration, but also protects the teeth we attach them to. These teeth are still vulnerable to common issues like tooth decay and gum disease, so routine care helps prevent problems that could threaten your new veneers. You should brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, and also floss before gong to bed. Every six months, you should see our team for a checkup and cleaning, so we can make sure your restorations continue to provide quality smile improvement. If you have any questions about cosmetic dentistry then please contact our team today.
