Cosmetic dentistry enables our team to offer Brighton, MA, residents beautiful smiles. With one procedure in particular, we can improve smile beauty and address several problems in just two visits. If you have multiple issues with the color and shape of your teeth, then you may benefit from the placement of our custom-made porcelain veneers.
When Should I Seek Veneers?
A veneer is meant to help transform a smile. In fact, we may use them to offer our patients a smile makeover. Since these thin shells of porcelain cover the front and sides of the teeth, we can correct misshapen teeth or repair minor damage. Our team may also address permanent discoloration. Known as intrinsic teeth stains, these form below the enamel and may be difficult to remove with traditional teeth whitening options. Placement helps close embarrassing gaps between the teeth too. If you have minor misalignment, then placement can help improve the appearance of your uneven teeth, offering a solution in as little as two visits without the need for orthodontics. If you have worn-down teeth due to teeth grinding, restorations can lengthen them as well!
What Does Restoring My Smile Involve?
To place them, we first need to make room for them to fit comfortably. Which means we remove a thin layer of outer tooth enamel. Afterward, we take detailed impressions of the prepared tooth, which help in the design and fabrication process. Once your restorations are complete, you will return for a second visit, in which we check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then place with a powerful bonding agent. Since they’re made from porcelain, they have the ability to mimic tooth enamel’s translucent abilities. We can also shade them to match surrounding teeth, and porcelain also contains stain-resistant properties, helping you enjoy a brighter smile.
How Long Will My New Veneers Last?
With proper care and attention, your new restorations could potentially last for decades. Since the teeth they’re attached to are still susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease, you need to maintain routine care. You should brush your teeth twice a day and floss every night before going to bed. Regular checkups and cleanings every six months help remove plaque buildup and safeguard smiles (and restorations) against cavities and periodontal issues.
