When we meet with people that have multiple esthetic issues with their smile, many assume that multiple treatments will be necessary. However, we often transform smiles in Newhall, CA, by prescribing a single treatment option. Porcelain veneers look natural and help transform a tooth’s appearance in as little as two visits.
What Esthetic Concerns Do They Correct?
A veneer is actually a very thin shell of porcelain, one that is placed over the front of the tooth. In placing them, we alter the color and the shape of the tooth immediately. We’ve placed them to lengthen worn down teeth, correct misshapen teeth, and repair minor chips or cracks. Our cosmetic restorations also help close gaps between the teeth and correct the appearance of minor misalignment. If you have permanent teeth stains, the kind that for beneath the enamel and may not respond to teeth whitening, then we can mask them with veneers. These unique restorations offer a wide array of cosmetic and restorative benefits for our Newhall patients.
How Do You Make and Place Them?
In order to ensure they look natural, we need to make room for them. We gently remove a thin layer of enamel from the teeth receiving them. We then take impressions of the prepared teeth, which aid in the design and fabrication process. Once we complete it, you return to our office. We check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then place the completed veneer with a powerful bonding agent. In just two visits, we can help you enjoy a stunning new smile.
Steps to Preserve Your Restorations
Porcelain not only contains stain resistant materials, but can be shaded to match the rest of your smile. However, that doesn’t mean your restorations are immune to discoloration, tooth decay, infection, or periodontal disease, which can impact the teeth they’re attached to. Keeping your restoration strong and bright means caring for your smile daily, brushing and flossing to control plaque buildup. We also suggest cutting back on drinks with dark pigments, such as soda, red wine, tea, and coffee. Finally, be sure you see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning. We can monitor your smile, including your new restorations, and also clean your teeth, removing plaque buildup and safeguarding your smile against periodontal disease.
