Porcelain Veneers Provide A Cosmetic Smile Makeover

A smile makeover means we can address multiple cosmetic concerns at once, transforming the overall beauty of your smile. With porcelain veneers, we can offer the potential for a smile makeover in only two visits. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist talks about the benefits of placing one or more porcelain veneers.

The Makeover Potential

When porcelain veneers are placed onto the teeth, they instantly change the shape and color of them, so we can correct an array of common imperfections all at once. For example, our team can mask permanent teeth stains that may resist whitening treatments, and also close embarrassing gaps between your teeth. Placement could also address misshapen teeth and repair minor damage too. The veneers can also lengthen worn down teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment so you have a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces. We could also combine them with other cosmetic treatments, like teeth whitening and bonding, to truly makeover your smile in just two visits.

The Process of Crafting and Placing Them

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to placing porcelain veneers, we will custom-make each one we provide for our patients. To begin, our team will numb the teeth receiving them to prevent discomfort, and then remove a layer of enamel to make room for the completed restorations. Our team gathers digital images and impressions of the teeth, which we use to create a 3D model of your tooth and design the restoration with precision. When they are ready, we will attach them with a powerful bonding agent. The restoration is very thin and made from porcelain, which is translucent like enamel and can be color-matched to blend with your smile. The material can also handle daily bite forces and pressures with ease, and provide years of quality restoration. We use the same porcelain material to also create crowns and even replacement teeth, such as bridges or dental implant restorations.

Keeping Your Restorations Strong and Bright

With the right steps, you can keep your teeth strong and bright, ensuring your new ones can last for years to come, possibly decades. To do so, you need to brush and floss daily, cut back on the sugar and starch in your diet, avoid tobacco products, and of course, see our team for a checkup and cleaning every six months. These actions can help safeguard your natural teeth and protect your restoration too.
