Cosmetic veneers offer our Mansfield, TX, patients a smile makeover in just two visits! In today’s blog, we’re going to look at how we create and place these custom restorations, and what makes them such a great choice for improving the beauty of your smile. Are porcelain veneers right for your smile? What maintenance do they require once placed?
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- Custom-Made for Your Smile: Each one will be created specifically for your smile. We begin by making room for them, which means we remove a thin layer of outer tooth enamel. Next, we take detailed impressions of the prepared tooth. Using the impressions, we create a restoration designed for your smile alone. Once complete, you return for a second visit so we can place the finished veneer with a powerful bonding agent.
- Created Using Lifelike Materials: We create them using porcelain. Not only is porcelain strong, but the material also contains stain-resistant properties. We can shade them to match the color of your teeth, and they also mimic the translucent capabilities of natural tooth enamel. Once in place, your completed restoration should look natural and blend with the rest of your smile seamlessly.
- Correct More Than One Cosmetic Concern: When in place, they cover the front and sides of your teeth. Which means we can use them to repair minor cracks or chips, and even lengthen worn down teeth, which could occur as a result of teeth grinding. If you have permanent teeth stains, the kind that rarely respond to teeth whitening, we can mask discoloration. Placement also closes exposed gaps between the teeth and may even be used to correct the appearance of minor misalignment. For many patients, they essentially offer a complete smile makeover.
- Easy to Care For: In order to keep them bright and strong, and protect the tooth they’re attached to, you need to maintain routine care. Each day, you need to brush your teeth twice for two minutes and floss every night before going to bed. These actions, along with routine six-month cleanings, help control plaque buildup and prevent tooth decay and gum disease. To keep them bright, consider cutting back on foods and drinks with high sugar content, or drinks that contain dark pigments, such a coffee, tea, soda, or red wine.
