A new year is a chance to make big changes to your smile. If you would like to enjoy a more attractive smile, then we have a cosmetic option that can transform a smile’s appearance in as little as two sittings. Should you consider porcelain veneers from your Newhall, CA, dentist in 2020? How do we create and place these custom cosmetic restorations?
What are Porcelain Veneers?
A porcelain veneer is a thin cosmetic restoration created from porcelain, a strong material that can absorb bite forces. The material also contains translucent properties, much like tooth enamel, and can be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth. The material also contains stain-resistant properties as well. The restoration covers the front and sides of the tooth, instantly changing overall appearance. Not only can we repair chips and cracks, but we can lengthen worn down teeth and even close gaps between them as well. We’ve also masked permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to most teeth whitening options, and also correcting the appearance of misalignment, so you may not need to wear braces.
Creating One and Placing It
The process begins with our team removing a thin layer of enamel from the tooth. We take detailed impressions of the tooth, using the impressions to design and create a custom-made dental restoration. When you return for the second visit, we will check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then place the veneer with a powerful bonding agent, the same we use for securing crowns, inlays, and onlays. The process only takes about two visits, and helps transform a tooth’s shape and color!
Keeping Your Smile Bright
How do you keep them bright and healthy? First, cutting back on sugary foods and drinks, brushing and flossing daily, and seeing our team for checkups and cleanings can help prevent stains and also protect the teeth the restorations are attached to from developing decay or becoming compromised due to gum disease. With proper care and attention your cosmetic improvements could last for decade, possibly even a lifetime. If you have any questions about our cosmetic treatment options, or if you would like to set up a consultation and see what smile improvements we could offer you in 2020, then contact our team today.
