What if there was a single procedure that could instantly alter the shape and color of your teeth? With porcelain veneers, our team can transform the overall beauty of your smile with thin restorations. In today’s blog, your El Paso, TX, dentists discuss the benefits of placing one or more of our porcelain veneers.
The Benefits of Placing Cosmetic Restorations
Porcelain veneers are very thin restorations. These are designed solely for addressing cosmetic concerns with your smile’s appearance. The porcelain we use is very durable, in fact we use the same materials for our lifelike crowns and even as part of our dental bridges or implant restorations. The material can handle daily bite forces and pressures, and is translucent like tooth enamel. The material is even shaded to blend with the appearance of surrounding teeth, so your smile is bright and beautiful.
Our team can use them to mask permanent teeth stains, correct the appearance of minor misalignment, and even repair minor chips and cracks. We can lengthen worn down teeth too, and also correct misshapen teeth in as little as one to two visits. For many, these alone act as a complete smile makeover.
Creating Your Cosmetic Restorations
Each one is custom-made for your smile, ensuring optimal beauty. To begin, we will assess the cause and extent of your cosmetic concerns with a thorough examination. If these are right for you, then we will numb the tooth or teeth receiving them, and then gently remove a thin layer of outer enamel, making room for them. We take detailed digital images of these teeth from several angles, creating a 3D impression. In a dental lab, we use the impression to design and craft the completed veneers with precision and accuracy. We then check the fit in a follow-up visit and make any necessary adjustments. We then attach them with a powerful bonding agent.
Keeping Your Newly Restore Smile Bright
To help keep them bright and also safeguard the teeth we’ve attached them to, you need to brush and floss daily to control plaque buildup until we can see you for a dental cleaning. You should also cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and avoid tobacco products. These factors keep your teeth and gums strong, so your restorations can last for many years to come.
