Some cosmetic treatment options address one esthetic concern, such as teeth whitening or gum contouring. But we also have a treatment option that corrects multiple issues with a smile’s shape and color. In today’s blog, your Livonia, MI, dentist will explain how veneers help smiles dazzle once again! Is this the right choice to help improve your smile’s beauty?
What Makes Porcelain Veneers Dazzle?
Porcelain veneers offer such a great smile makeover because they’re designed with your specific smile in mind, blending seamlessly and improving smile esthetics at all once. Each one is a thin shell of dental porcelain, and they cover the front and sides of the teeth. The material is stain-resistant, and can be tinted to match the color of surrounding teeth. We may whiten your smile first to ensure they match your brightest smile! The material also absorbs daily bite forces, which means your new cosmetic restorations could last for decades to come!
Correcting Multiple Cosmetic Concerns
When in place, we may mask permanent teeth stains. Also known as intrinsic discoloration, these form beneath the enamel and may be difficult to remove with teeth whitening alone. We also repair minor chips and cracks, and provide length to teeth worn down as a result of bruxism (grinding/clenching). Our team also helps reshape malformed or misshapen teeth, and can even correct the appearance of minor misalignment. You enjoy instant misalignment correction!
Creating Your Restorations
Each one is custom-made to fit perfectly and also offer lifelike repair. We begin by removing a thin layer of outer tooth structure, and then taking detailed digital images and impressions. We use the images gathered to help our team designs and create the restorations. When you return for a second visit, we attach the custom-made veneer with a powerful bonding agent, the same we use to secure crowns and inlays or onlays. With routine care, including brushing and flossing daily and checkup and cleaning visits every six months, you help them stay bright for a longer period. If you have any questions about how we use them to offer a smile makeover, then contact our team today. We want to help you obtain a smile that fills you with confidence.
