When you have multiple esthetic issues with the shape and color of the smile, we can offer a smile makeover with a single treatment option. Cosmetic porcelain veneers can reshape your smile and make a profound difference! In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about our cosmetic veneers.
The Cosmetic Issues We Address
Since veneers cover the front and sides of each tooth, this means we can make major improvements with your smile’s appearance. For example, we can mask the permanent teeth stains that could resist traditional teeth whitening treatments. Placement could also repair cracked or chipped teeth, and add length to ones worn down by bruxism. These cosmetic restorations can also close gaps between the teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. For many, porcelain veneers can offer a smile makeover in only two visits!
Creating and Placing Custom Restorations
To begin, we will carefully examine your smile to see if veneers are right for you. If so, we will then numb the tooth or teeth receiving them and remove a small layer of outer enamel. Once we do, we will take detailed digital images of the teeth, which we use in a lab setting to design and fabricate your custom restorations. The porcelain material we use can take on daily bite forces and pressures with ease, and can also be shaded to blend with your smile seamlessly. We then attach them with a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, they can provide years of quality smile improvement.
Keeping Your New Restorations Bright
You can take steps to keep them bright and also protect the teeth we’ve attached your completed restorations to. For example, be sure you brush your teeth in the morning and again at night for at least two minutes, and use a fluoride toothpaste when you do. You also need to floss every evening before you brush the second time. Cutting back on sugar in your diet and avoiding tobacco products are also helpful for protecting the health and beauty of your smile. With these actions, you can help your new restorations last for years to come, and also safeguard your natural teeth too.
