When you have multiple issues with the shape and color of your teeth, you may assume that correcting them means multiple procedures. But what if one procedure, and two visits, could completely transform your smile? In today’s blog, your Austin, MN, dentists will help improve oral health and smile beauty with porcelain veneers.
The Esthetic Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
A veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain that is color-matched to blend with your smile. Their placement could close gaps between teeth, including black triangle spaces. We’ve also used them to repair minor chips and cracks, and add lengthen to worn down teeth. Placement also helps mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to most whitening treatments. Veneers also offer an alternative to braces for minor cases of misalignment, correcting the appearance of your alignment.
Creating a Cosmetic Restoration
To create one, we start by removing a thin layer of enamel from the outside of each tooth receiving one. We then take detailed digital images and impressions of your tooth. The impressions allow us to design and craft the restoration in a dental lab setting. The porcelain material is stain-resistant, and translucent like enamel. We could whiten your smile before the placement process to ensure they match your brightest smile.
Placement and Care
When you return for a second visit, we will check the fit and make any necessary changes to ensure proper bite balance. We then use a powerful bonding agent to secure them to the tooth. Once in place, they can last decades with proper care and attention. Remember, the teeth we’ve attached them to could develop painful cases of decay and infection, cause them to become lost. Gum disease could also lead to tooth loss, and improve hygiene could mean unsightly teeth stains.
You should take time to brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, and floss every evening before going to sleep. Cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and about tobacco products. Be sure you see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning as well, so we can help you continue to enjoy a bright and beautiful smile for ear to come.
