The results of some cosmetic treatments can last for months, but require further treatment in the future, such as teeth whitening. However, with porcelain veneers we offer our Mansfield, TX, patients a permanent solution to a wide array of esthetic concerns. How do veneers offer long-lasting smile improvement, and when you should you talk to your dentist about them?

How Do You Create a Veneer?

Each one will be custom-made, which helps ensure a more attractive appearance and a comfortable fit. We begin by making room for the restoration, which involves removing a thin layer of enamel from the surface of the tooth. Afterward, we take detailed impressions of the smile and use the images and information gathered to design the restoration. We craft the restoration from solid porcelain, and place it with a powerful bonding agent in a follow-up visit. The entire process takes only two visits to complete.

A Long-Lasting Cosmetic Solution

Since we attach them in a similar manner as crowns or inlays and onlays, they remain in place for many years to come, provided you continue to take proper care of your smile. You should make time to see us every six months for checkup and cleanings after placement. During the checkup, we will monitor your newly repaired smile and ensure the veneers remain strong and bright. The cleaning removes plaque buildup, protecting the tooth the restoration is attached to. We also suggest brushing and flossing daily to control plaque buildup and safeguard the smile.

Improving Your Smile

The porcelain we create the veneers with is strong and able to absorb bite forces and other common pressures. The material is stain-resistant and we can shade it to better blend with the smile. Since they cover the front and sides of the teeth, they instantly change the appearance of the smile. We may use them to repair minor chips and cracks, or to lengthen worn down teeth. They close gaps between the teeth and in some cases, even correct the appearance of minor misalignment. We reshape malformed or misshapen teeth, and correct issues with the tooth’s surface, such as the presence of pits or grooves. If you have permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to traditional teeth whitening, we can mask the stain the by placing one or more restorations. If you have any questions about protecting your smile and improving overall esthetics, then please contact our team today to schedule a cosmetic consultation and discuss the potential benefits of porcelain repair.
