When you have multiple esthetic issues, we may recommend a single procedure to correct all of them at once. Porcelain veneers look natural, and help transform the shape and color of each tooth instantly. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist will explain how we use them to perfect the beauty of a smile.
Creating Each Veneer
A veneer covers the front and sides of each tooth, instantly changing the color and shape. Each one is created and fitted specifically for your smile. Every smile is unique, and your restoration will reflect that fact! To start, we want to make sure you feel comfortable, so we will administer a numbing agent. Next, we gently remove a thin layer of enamel from the outside of your tooth. Next, detailed images will be captured with digital technology, and combined to create a 3D computer impression. We use this to design and craft the veneer in a lab setting.
Placing and Caring for Them
When we complete your new restoration, you will then come to the office for the second visit. We will check the fit and if necessary, make any adjustments. The finished product is then attached to the tooth with a powerful bonding agent. With proper care and attention, they could last decades to come. Routine care protects the teeth we’ve attached them to from infection or gum disease, and also keeps the material bright. You also benefit from a checkup and cleaning visit, so we can monitor the smile and remove any harmful plaque and tartar buildup.
The Cosmetic Benefits
The porcelain we use is strong and able to absorb the daily bite forces your teeth endure. The material is also translucent, much like natural enamel, and can be color-matched to blend with your smile. We could even whiten your teeth beforehand to ensure your new restorations match your brightest smile! Placement could help close embarrassing gaps and black triangle spaces, and also lengthen teeth worn down by teeth grinding. We can repair minor chips and cracks. Correct malformed or misshapen teeth, and also correct the appearance of minor misalignment. Placement could also mask the permanent teeth stains that may resist teeth whitening.
