Cosmetic dentistry allows our team to help patients enjoy improved smiles. We can address discoloration, misshapen or uneven teeth, and other esthetic issues. But what if we had a single procedure that could address all of those issues? Can veneers instantly improve smiles in Albuquerque, NM?
Addressing A Wide Array of Cosmetic Concerns
Veneers fit over the font and sides of the teeth, which means they completely alter the overall appearance of the tooth. We can use them to cover permanent teeth stains that may not otherwise respond to teeth whitening. We can close gaps between the teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and address misshapen or damaged teeth. Placing them can also correct the appearance of minor alignment issues as well.
Creating and Placing Them
First, we make room for them by removing a thin layer of enamel. We then take detailed impressions of the prepared tooth, which will be used at a dental lab to design and create the restoration. Once the veneer is complete, the patient returns to the office. We check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then place the restoration using a powerful bonding agent. The entire process only takes two visits and can completely transform the smile.
Combining Them with Other Treatment Options
For a more cost-effective smile transformation, we may combine them with dental bonding. With dental bonding, we use the same composite resin we employ for fillings to address stains and damage. We can use this for the side and rear teeth, reserving the veneers for the front facing teeth.
As part of the placement process, we may also offer teeth whitening to brighten the surrounding teeth before we place the brand-new restorations. If you have any questions about our cosmetic procedures, then please contact our team today.
