brighton dental veneersIf you have issues with the appearance of your smile, then you may benefit from cosmetic dentistry. In today’s blog, your Brighton, MA, dentists talk about how we create custom-made cosmetic restorations with porcelain, and how they help address a wide array of common esthetic issues, including discoloration and misshapen teeth!

Crafting Each Veneer

To ensure the best appearance and a comfortable fit that doesn’t negatively impact bite balance, we need to custom create each one for our patients. To start, we will gently remove a thin layer of outer enamel from the outside of the tooth. Next, we use digital imaging technology to take pictures of the tooth, which allows us to design and craft the finished product in a dental lab setting. The porcelain we craft them from is strong and durable, but also translucent like enamel. We tint it to blend with your tooth, ensuring it matches the rest of your smile.

Placement and Maintenance

When you return to the office once the veneer is ready, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to ensure an optimal fit. Next, we place it with a powerful bonding agent. The restoration then has the ability to remain in place for decades to come with proper care and attention. Even actions as simple as daily brushing and flossing, and checkup and cleaning visits every six months, can keep them bright and safeguard the tooth we’ve attached them to.

Benefits for Smile Beauty

How do we use them to improve the beauty of your smile? Since they cover the front and sides of each tooth, they instantly transform the shape and color. For for that reason, we can mask permanent teeth stains that may endure traditional teeth whitening treatments. We also offer instant orthodontics, as they correct the appearance of minor misalignment. Placement could lengthen worn down teeth, close embarrassing gaps or black tringle spaces between teeth, and even repair minor chips and cracks. Our team could also correct the shape of misshapen or malformed teeth too. If you have any questions about the placement of porcelain veneers, or if you would like to see if these are right for your smile, then contact our team to schedule a cosmetic consultation. We’re ready to help you enjoy a brighter, more attractive mile in as little as two visits, so you always feel proud to smile!
