Do you have multiple issues with the appearance of your smile? We often help patients with problems related to the shape and color of the smile with our custom veneers. Created from a thin shell of lifelike porcelain, a veneer addresses everything from minor damage and stains to misshapen teeth. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist explains how we improve smile beauty with veneers.
Masking Your Blemishes
The restoration is crafted from a thin shell of porcelain, and when placed, covers the front and sides of the teeth. Which means we can mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to teeth whitening. In addition, we can lengthen teeth worn down by teeth grinding, and also repair minor chips and cracks. We can reshape malformed or misshapen teeth, and even help close embarrassing gaps between the teeth. If you have minor misalignment, then we may be able to correct the appearance of your uneven teeth. The entire process only takes about two visits to complete!
Creating Your Porcelain Veneers
To craft them, we begin by removing a thin layer of enamel from your tooth and taking detailed impressions. The impressions allow our team to design and craft them from porcelain. Not only does porcelain absorb daily bite forces, but the material is translucent like tooth enamel and can be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth. When you return for a second visit, we will place them with a powerful bonding agent, the same we use to secure crowns for decades. In just two visits, you can obtain a stunning new smile that corrects multiple esthetic issues with the shape and color of your teeth!
Protecting Your Newly Restored Teeth
The teeth they’re attached to are still vulnerable to issues like cavities, infections, and gum disease. In addition, lack of daily care could allow stains to form. To keep them bright and protect the teeth we attach them to, you should brush your teeth when you wake up and again before going to bed for about two minutes each time. You also need to floss thoroughly in between each tooth every night before bed. A visit every six moths for a checkup and cleaning is helpful too, as we can monitor your smile and also remove any plaque and tartar accumulating on your smile. If you have any questions, then contact our team today.
