When you have several issues with the appearance of your smile, you may assume correction could require several treatments and appointments. But with porcelain veneers, our team can transform your smile with one procedure in just two visits! In today’s blog, your Austin, MN, dentists talk about porcelain veneers.
The Cosmetic Potential
These thin restorations are placed onto the front facing side of each tooth, instantly altering the front and sides of them. Which means we can address a wide array of cosmetic issue all at once. For example, they can mask intrinsic teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to traditional whitening treatments. Placement also lengthen worn down teeth, repairs minor damages, and helps reshape malformed teeth too. We can use them to close embarrassing gaps between teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, which means a straighter smile without the need for metal braces or plastic aligners. For some, they offer a complete smile makeover in as little as two visits.
Creating and Placing Custom Restorations
Receiving them task two visits. The first one involves administering a local anesthetic to the tooth, and then removing a thin layer from the outside. This makes room for the completed restoration. Next, we take detailed images and impressions with digital technology, so we can design and craft the finished product in a dental lab setting. During the second visit, we will check the fit and if necessary, make final adjustments before we attach the veneer with a powerful bonding agent. Once affixed to the tooth, this will blend with your smile and also stay in place for years to come. Porcelain can be color-matched and is also able to absorb daily bite forces and pressures too.
Keeping Your Smile Bright
To keep the porcelain bright and also prevent decay or gum disease from compromising the teeth we’ve attached your veneers to, you need to take time to care for your smile each and every day. This could include cutting back on sugary foods and drinks, avoiding tobacco products, and of course, brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every evening. You should also find time to see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning too!
