Porcelain Veneers Help Improve Your Smile’s Beauty

When you have multiple issues with your smile, such as misshapen and discolored teeth, then we can offer major improvement with a single treatment in only two visits. With porcelain veneers, we can restore your smile to optimal beauty. In today’s blog, your Prairie Village, KS, dentist talks about placing porcelain veneers.

The Benefits of Placing These Thin Restorations

Each veneer is made from porcelain, a very strong and durable material that is translucent like outer enamel and that can be shaded to blend with your smile. The material can handle daily bite forces too, and once in place, instantly changes the shape and color of the tooth. When we can place one to mask permanent teeth stains, or even fill embarrassing gaps between the teeth. Placement can repair minor damage, correct misshapen teeth, and lengthen worn down structures too. We’ve even used them to improve bite balance and also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. For some, this is a smile makeover in just two visits.

Creating and Placing Your Custom Veneers

During your first visit, our team will numb the tooth or teeth being treated. We then carefully remove a thin layer of outer enamel, which makes room for your new restoration. Our team will then take detailed images and measurements of the prepared tooth. In between your visits, we will use the information gathered to design and craft your custom veneers. When you return to the office, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. We then attach it with a powerful bonding agent, the same we use to secure crowns and even bridges. You then leave with a transformed smile!

Taking Care of Your Cosmetic Restorations

With the right care, you can keep your new restorations bright and also safeguard the teeth we’ve connected them to, so they can last for years to come. These same actions safeguard your natural teeth too! You should brush for two minutes when you wake up and then again before bed, and use a fluoride toothpaste each time. Be sure you floss every evening before you rush that second time, and try to limit how much sugar and starch is in your diet. Finally, make time to see our team for a checkup and cleaning visit!
