Enhancing Your Beauty With Porcelain Veneers

If you have multiple problems with the look of your teeth that you would like to address, then you should consider a cosmetic solution. You can be pleased to find that porcelain veneers help cover chips, cracks, discoloration, and more with a single treatment. In today’s blog, Sunny Smiles discusses improving your smile with this cosmetic option!

Helping You Improve Your Appearance

Porcelain veneers can help you completely remake your smile without the need for highly invasive procedures. This is because they are made from thin layers of porcelain that simply cover the front of each one of your teeth. To place them, we take a minimal amount of material from your tooth to bind them on the front. After securing your treatment, it can address many common cosmetic issues. If your teeth experience discoloration due to the loss of enamel, this treatment provides the bright, white look of your original smile. While whitening treatments can remove stains within the enamel, veneers are your friend when it comes to replacing enamel. If your teeth have lost height due to constant grinding, we can shape them to correct this damage. You may be surprised to learn we can often complete your treatment in as little as two visits to our office!

Crafting Your Porcelain Veneers

When you meet with the team at Sunny Smiles, we will discuss your cosmetic desires to determine if this treatment is right for you. To begin, we will shave a small portion of the top layer of your tooth to allow the attachment of your veneer. We apply a local anesthetic for your comfort during this procedure. After preparing all of your teeth, we will take detailed images to help create your new set. We then send a digital model of your smile to a lab where they will create them and return them for attachment at a subsequent visit.

Placing And Maintaining Your New Smile

At your follow-up visit, we will evaluate your mouth to ensure that the new set properly fits your prepared teeth. If necessary, we will perform any adjustments before the attachment. Using a powerful bonding agent, we connect each veneer to the front of your tooth. When you return home, you will care for your new smile with the same oral hygiene routine you normally employ. At future general checkups, we will inspect your teeth to see that they are maintaining a bright and beautiful smile!
