When you have multiple blemishes with the appearance of your smile, this doesn’t mean you have to undergo multiple procedures. Instead, we could use a single treatment to correct esthetic issues with the shape and color of your smile. In today’s blog, your Austin, MN, dentists talk about our porcelain veneers.
A porcelain veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain that we place onto the front facing side of a tooth. We could place one or several, helping you enjoy a transformed tooth. We craft them from porcelain because this material is very strong and durable, able to absorb daily bite forces and pressure. For this reason, we also use the material to create crowns and even replacement teeth, from bridges to implant restorations. The material is also translucent like natural tooth enamel, and we color-match it to blend with the rest of the smile. In fact, we may whiten your teeth beforehand to ensure your finished restoration blends with your smile.
Creating Cosmetic Restorations
How do we create them? Well, we start by numbing the tooth or teeth receiving them, and then gently removing a thin layer of outer enamel from them. We gather detailed images of these prepared teeth with digital imaging technology. The images and measurements will be employed in a special lab setting for our team to design and craft the finished product. When they’re ready, you will return to the office for a second visit. We will attach them to the teeth with a powerful bonding agent, allowing them to stay in place for years to come! You can also ensure their longevity with good oral health habits, such as daily brushing and flossing, a healthy diet, and visits for checkups and cleanings.
Benefits for Your Smile’s Appearance
A lifelike appearance means we can address one or more esthetic issues. Each one covers the front and sides of your teeth. We could use them to repair minor damage, add length to worn down teeth, and even close embarrassing gaps between your teeth. Placement could also mask permanent teeth stains that teeth whitening alone cannot address. We could correct misshapen teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a smile that appears more even and straight. Essentially, you can have a smile makeover in only one or more visits. If you have any questions about how we improve your smile, or if you would like to schedule a cosmetic consultation, then contact our team today to learn more.
