Many cosmetic procedures are designed to address a specific aspect of your smiles, such as the shape of your tooth, your alignment, or the shade of your teeth. However, we have one option meant to correct all of these concerns, in as little as two visits. Let’s talk about how porcelain veneers offer residents of Albuquerque, NM, with a smile makeover.
The restoration itself fits over the front and sides of the teeth, which enables us to address multiple esthetic issues all at once. For example, placement masks the kind of permanent discoloration that may not respond to teeth whitening. We also reshape malformed teeth and offer repairs for minor cracks and chips. We help lengthen worn-down teeth and close unsightly gaps between the teeth. For those with misalignment, we may be able to correct the appearance of minor alignment issues. As you see, these restorations offer cosmetic repairs and also address some restorative concerns.
First, to ensure a proper fit, we need to make room for them. Our team removes a thin outer layer of tooth enamel. We next take detailed impressions of the prepared teeth. At a dental lab, a ceramist will use the images we’ve gathered to design the restoration. We create them using porcelain because the material is very strong, and also blends with the smile. Once in place, the veneer matches the rest of the smile. We place the veneer over the front of your tooth with a powerful bonding agent. The entire procedure only takes about two visits.
Following your treatment, you will need to care for your smile and veneer to keep the restoration strong and bright. Regular care enables the veneer to potentially last for decades. You should brush your teeth twice daily for about two minutes each session. We also suggest flossing every night before bed to remove what a toothbrush cannot reach. Cutting back on drinks with dark pigments, such as soda, tea, red wine, fruit juice, and coffee help keep the smile bright. We also suggest seeing us for a routine checkup and cleaning every six months, so we can monitor your oral health and also remove all plaque buildup from your smile.
