We’ve talked about teeth whitening, but did you know we have a cosmetic treatment that can also reshape your teeth too? For many people, placing one or more custom porcelain veneers could transform the smile, offering a smile makeover in just two visits. At our helpful local Gainesville, TX dental office, we’re looking at the benefits of our custom cosmetic restorations.
The Benefits of Placing Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers cover the front and sides of each tooth, which can reshape them and correct multiple dental imperfections all at once. For example, we can mask permanent teeth stains, also known as intrinsic discoloration, which could resist traditional teeth whitening treatments. Our team can reshape malformed or damaged teeth, lengthen worn down portions of tooth structure, and also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. Our team can even use them to close gaps between the teeth. For some, this could mean a smile makeover in only two visits.
The Process of Crafting and Placing Them
To ensure a lifelike appearance, a balanced bite, and a comfortable fit, we will custom-make each veneer we place for our patients. To get started, our team will numb the teeth being treated and then remove thin layers of enamel from them, making room for your veneers. Our team then takes detailed digital images and measurements of the teeth, which can be used in a lab setting to design and fabricate your custom cosmetic restorations. When they’re complete, you will return for a second visit. We check the fit and if needed, we can adjust them to ensure a proper fit. We then attach the finished product with a powerful bonding agent, so you have restorations that can last for years to come!
How to Keep Them Shining for Years to Come
With good oral hygiene, you can protect your untreated teeth from discoloration and poor oral health, and keep your new restorations bright too. You should take time to brush and floss daily, eat a diet low in sugar and starch, and of course, find time to see our team every six months for a checkup and a professional cleaning visit. If you have any questions about how we design and place custom veneers to make over your smile, then contact our team today. Let’s make your smile shine in 2024 and beyond with our cosmetic treatment options!
