When you have more than one issue with the appearance of your smile, we could correct these issues with a single cosmetic treatment. With porcelain veneers, we use a cosmetic dental restoration to help transform the appearance of the smile. In today’s blog, your Brighton, MA, dentists talk about our lifelike porcelain veneers.
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
A porcelain veneer is a very thin dental restoration that covers the font and sides of the tooth. We use them to correct multiple cosmetic issues at once, which means they have the potential to offer a smile makeover. Each one is custom-made before the smile, as every smile is different and we want to ensure they fit comfortably, provide a balanced bite, and also a lifelike appearance that reflects a person’s unique facial structure.
Crafting a Custom Option
To begin, we will sit you down and administer a local numbing agent. Next, we use digital scanning system to take detailed images of the smile from multiple angles, which we combine to create a 3D computer impression. This is far more accurate than a traditional physical one. This lets us design and craft the finished product with precision and accuracy, using porcelain we can color-match to blend with the smile and also absorb daily bite forces. We then attach them to the teeth with a powerful bonding agent in a follow-up visit. From there, routine daily care, like brushing and floss, and checkups and cleanings every six-months, can help them stay bright and strong.
The Smile Makeover
When placed, they can instantly reshape malformed teeth and repair minor chips and cracks. We can add length to the teeth worn down by bruxism, and also mask permanent teeth stains too. The process could also help by correcting the appearance of minor misalignment, so you can enjoy a more even smile without the need for braces or plastic aligners. We close unsightly gaps between the teeth as well! Our team could whiten teeth beforehand so the restoration matches your brightest smiles, or combine it with bonding and contouring for a more cost-effective smile makeover.
