Porcelain veneers cover the front and sides of your teeth, which means we can use them to completely change the appearance of smiles in Newhall, CA. But how do we create them and what makes them blend so well with smiles? In today’s blog, let’s look at how we design and fabricate these cosmetic dental restorations.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
We create them using porcelain, a very strong material able to absorb serious bite forces. In addition, porcelain contains stain-resistant material and can be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth. When in place, they can mask permanent teeth stains, which may not otherwise respond to teeth whitening. We can lengthen worn down teeth and repair minor chips and cracks as well. Placement also helps close gaps between the teeth and corrects the appearance of minor misalignment. We can use them to quite literally transform your smile’s appearance in as little as two visits!
Creating Your Custom Restorations
We begin by prepping the teeth receiving them. We remove a small amount of outer tooth structure and then take detailed impressions of the prepared teeth. While you return home, we begin the process of creating your restorations from porcelain. Once complete, you will return to the office. After we check the fit and make any necessary adjustments, we place them with a powerful bonding agent. Like crowns, they have the potential to last for decades with proper care and attention. We may also combine them with other cosmetic treatments, such as dental bonding, teeth whitening, and Invisalign® to offer a complete smile makeover.
Helping Them Last
How do we safeguard them? First, be sure to see us every six months. During a checkup, we will carefully examine your smile for signs of oral health concerns that could threaten your restoration. A cleaning then allows our team to remove all plaque buildup from the teeth, which safeguards the teeth from tooth decay and gum disease, to factors that could threaten your natural teeth and newly repaired ones as well. At home, you should continue to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes and floss every night before bed. These actions help safeguard the teeth from cavities, infection, gingivitis and gum disease. If you have any questions about improving smile beauty with our cosmetic restorations, then contact our team today. We would love to schedule a cosmetic consultation and help you enjoy a more attractive and healthy smile!
