How Veneers Offer Major Cosmetic Changes

When you want to make striking changes to your smile in only two visits, then you should consider porcelain veneers. These thin dental restorations can help you smile with confidence and enjoy smiles that shine. In today’s blog, your Prairie Village, KS, dentist talks about the major cosmetic changes our porcelain veneers offer!

The Cosmetic Issues We Can Correct

Each porcelain veneer is placed onto the front facing side of a tooth, which means we can instantly change the shape and color. Our team can place one or several, and when in place we can mask permanent teeth stains that would otherwise resist traditional whitening treatments. Our team can close empty spaces and black triangle spaces between the teeth, and also lengthen teeth worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding). They can repair minor damage and address misshapen teeth too. If you have a minor case of dental misalignment, our team can use these to correct the appearance of your smile’s alignment. For many, this provides a smile makeover in only two sittings!

How We Create and Place Your Restorations

How do we create and place our custom porcelain veneers? To begin, our team will numb the teeth being treated so we can comfortably remove a thin layer of outer enamel. Once we do, we will take detailed digital images and impressions of these teeth, which we will use to design and craft your custom restorations. The porcelain material we use is very strong and durable, able to handle daily bite forces and pressures with ease. The material is also translucent like natural tooth enamel, and can be shaded to blend with your smile seamlessly.

When we create them, we will have you return for a second visit. Our team will then check the fit and if necessary, make some final adjustments before we attach them with a powerful bonding agent. Once your restorations are secured, they can stay in place for years to come. Keeping them bright and strong involves simply brushing and flossing your teeth each day, eating a healthy diet low in sugar and starch, and making time to see our team for a checkup and cleaning visit every six months.

If you have any questions about how to keep your veneers bright and strong, or if you have cosmetic issues you want to see addressed with our custom porcelain veneers, then contact our team today to learn more.
