Each porcelain veneer we place will look natural, and instantly improve the beauty of your smile. But how do we create them, and what allows them to offer a smile makeover in just two sittings? In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist is taking about everything you need to know about our porcelain veneers!
How Porcelain Mimics Enamel
We use porcelain to create these cosmetic restorations for a number of reasons. First, the material mimics the translucent properties of tooth enamel, and also contains stain-resistant properties too! We can shade them to blend with the surrounding teeth. For this reason, we may even discuss professional teeth whitening to ensure the final product matches your best possible smile. The material is often very durable too, absorb daily bite forces and pressure. For example, we often use porcelain to create crowns, support bridges, and even restore single tooth dental implants. Basically, the thin restorations cover the front and sides of each tooth with a material that blends seamlessly with looks completely natural.
Creating and Placing These Restorations
The key to their lifelike appearance and comfortable fit is the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all approach, each one will be custom-made for you. To begin, we will administer a local anesthetic and then remove a thin layer of outer enamel from the tooth, which makes room for the new veneer. The next step involves taking detail images and measurements with digital technology. You return home, and we send the digital information we gathered to a dental lab. There, we will design and fabricate the veneer. When you return to the office, we will make any necessary adjustments before attaching the restorations with a powerful bonding agent.
The Cosmetic Treatment Potential
Since they cover the front and sides of each tooth, they make a great option for masking permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to professional whitening treatments. We could also provide an alternative to braces by correcting the appearance of minor misalignment. Placement has been shown to lengthen worn down teeth, repair minor chips and cracks, and even mask embarrassing gaps between your teeth, including black triangle spaces. With proper care and attention, such as daily brushing and flossing and visits every six months for a checkup and cleaning, they can last for decades to come.
