Porcelain veneers could help you obtain a smile makeover in only two visits. Each one is custom-made for your smile. In today’s blog, your Astoria, NY, dentist will discuss how we create your custom veneers, and how placing them could transform your smile instantly.
The Cosmetic Capabilities of Porcelain Veneers
The porcelain veneers will be placed onto the front of the teeth, instantly covering the visible portions of each tooth. For that reason, they can address several esthetic issues. For example, we could mask permanent teeth stains right away, the kind that form beneath the enamel and may resist professional teeth whitening. Placement could also reshape misshapen teeth and close gaps and black triangle spaces between the teeth. We could use them to repair minor damage or lengthen worn down teeth too. If you have minor misalignment, then our team could correct the appearance of the smile’s alignment, providing an alternative to metal braces or clear aligners.
Creating and Placing Your New Restorations
To ensure they look natural, fit comfortably, and keep your bite balanced and even, each one will need to be custom-made for your smile. To begin, we will administer a local anesthesia and then remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth receiving one. Next, we take detailed digital images and measurements of the prepared tooth. In a dental lab, this information will be used to design and fabrication the restoration. When you return to the office, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. The next step is to attach the restoration with a powerful bonding agent. When you leave the office for the second time, you do so with a transformed smile!
Keeping Them Bright
Your oral hygiene habits will then keep them bright, and also protect the teeth we’ve attached them to from the impacts of tooth decay or gum disease. You should brush twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste, and also floss every evening between each tooth. A healthier diet is recommended, as is avoiding tobacco products. Every six months, stop in for a checkup and a cleaning, so we can make sure your smile is healthy and strong, and remove harmful buildup that could harm teeth and compromise your new restoration. These actions help keep your smile bright, whole, and strong.
