brighton porcelain veneers

Do you want to improve the beauty of your smile, but assume doing so would involve multiple visits and procedures? What if we could transform your smile’s beauty with one or more lifelike veneers, making over your smile in two visits? In today’s blog, your Brighton, MA, dentists will look at how we create and place custom-made porcelain veneers.

The Esthetic Issues We Can Address

Since a veneer covers the front and the sides of each tooth we place one on, they have the ability to completely transform the beauty of your smile, instantly. For example, we can mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond well to most teeth whitening treatments. If you have minor misalignment, we can correct the appearance of your smile’s alignment. Placing them also instantly corrects misshapen teeth, and could even repairs very minor chips and cracks. We’ve used them to close gaps between teeth as well, and provide length to teeth worn-down due to teeth grinding. All of this is possible in just two visits!

Creating and Placing These Veneers

Each one is custom-made specifically for your smile. To start, we need to make room for them, which means removing a thin layer of enamel from your smile. Next, we take detailed impressions and images of your teeth, which enable us to design and craft them in a dental lab setting. Once your custom-made veneers are ready, we place them onto the front-facing sides of the teeth with a powerful bonding agent, the same used to secure crowns and other restorations. The porcelain we craft them from is translucent like tooth enamel, and can be shaded to blend with the rest of your smile. The material is also stain resistant, and can absorb daily bite forces and pressure.

Keeping Your Smile Bright

To keep them bright, and to safeguard the health of the teeth we attach them to, you need to brush and floss daily, as this removes food particles and reduces the severity of plaque buildup. You should also cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and beverages with dark pigments or tannins. You also benefit from avoiding tobacco products and seeing us every six months for a checkup and a thorough dental cleaning. If you have any questions about treating cosmetic issues, then contact our team today. We want to help you enjoy a stunning, beautiful smile, so you greet 2021 smiling proudly!
