Porcelain Veneers Can Offer Smile Transformation

austin porcelain veneersWe recently looked at teeth whitening and dental bonding, and how these treatments can improve smile beauty. But what if one treatment could offer the benefits of both? With porcelain veneers, we can transform the shape and color of the teeth at once. In today’s blog, your Austin, MN, dentists talk about the benefits of our custom porcelain veneers and how these can transform the appearance of your smile!

When Your Smile Needs Cosmetic Restoration

Porcelain veneers cover the front and sides of each tooth, which means we can take on multiple cosmetic concerns all at once. For example, we can mask teeth stains that are intrinsic, or permanent, and don’t respond to traditional teeth whitening systems. We can fill embarrassing gaps between the teeth and reshape malformed ones too. We can repair minor cracks and chips, and also lengthen structure worn down by teeth grinding. Placement can also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you can enjoy a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. For many, this could be a smile makeover in only two visits.

How We Design and Craft Your Custom Restorations

The process starts with our team numbing the tooth being treated so we can gently remove a thin layer of outer enamel, making room for your completed cosmetic restoration. We then take detailed digital images of the tooth from multiple angles, and use the images to aid in the design and fabrication of your custom veneers. The porcelain is a very strong material that can absorb daily bite forces and pressures, and be shaded to blend with your smile. You enjoy results that look natural and can stay in place for many years to come!

Attaching Your New Porcelain Restorations

When we finish your custom veneers, we will check the fit and then make any necessary adjustments  to ensure a proper fit and a balanced bite. We then attach them with a powerful bonding agent, which secures your new restoration firmly in place. You can then keep them bright and strong with daily brushing and flossing, a diet low in sugar and starch, and visits every six months for a checkup and cleaning. These actions also protect your natural teeth too!
