Some people have multiple issues with the appearance of their smile, which leads to embarrassment and for many, attempts to hide their teeth from the world. But what if we had a single cosmetic treatment that could completely change the shape and color of your teeth? With porcelain veneers, we can completely transform smiles in Newhall, CA.
What Cosmetic Improvements Do They Offer?
Since a veneer covers the front and side of a tooth, they address a wide array of cosmetic issues. For example, we have the ability to repair minor cracks and chips, or lengthen worn down teeth. We can reshape damaged or naturally malformed teeth, and even close unsightly gaps between them. Placement masks permanent teeth stains, the kind that would not otherwise respond to teeth whitening. For people with minor misalignment, we can even mask the appearance of poor alignment, offering an alternative to metal braces.
Creating and Placing Your Veneers
First, we need to make room for them, which means removing a thin layer of outer tooth enamel. We then take detailed impressions, which will be used in the design and fabrication process. When you return for the second visit, we will place the completed veneer onto the tooth using a powerful bonding agent.
To ensure a natural appearance, as well as strength and durability, we create them using porcelain. Not only is porcelain strong, but the material can also be shaded to match the color of your surrounding teeth, and reflects light in a manner similar to natural tooth enamel. We want your restoration to blend with your smile completely.
Keeping Your Smile Bright
Like most restorations, proper care and attention means they have the potential to last for decades. You should continue to brush and floss your teeth, as this controls plaque buildup. Plaque weakens tooth enamel and inflames gum tissue, which means a greater risk of tooth decay and gum disease, both issues that could threaten your new restoration. We also suggest seeing us every six months for a checkup and cleaning. During your checkup, we will monitor your smile, including your new restorations. We also clean your teeth, which completely removes plaque from your smile. We will also discuss better diet and snacking habits to safeguard your smile.
