We offer a number of cosmetic treatments, most designed to address a specific aspect of your smile, such as the color or alignment. However, we do have a unique restoration that addresses multiple issues with your smile’s appearance, including the shade, shape, and even position of your teeth. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at how your Gary, IN, dentist transforms smile beauty with porcelain veneers.
Creating Your Thin and Attractive Restoration
A veneer is a thin restoration that covers the front and sides of your teeth, which helps instantly transform your smile’s shape and color. Each one is custom-made for our patients, ensuring a proper fit and attractive appearance. To craft them, we need to start by making room for them, which means removing a small segment of outer enamel. We then take detailed impressions and images of your smile. Using this information, we can design and craft your aligners from porcelain, a strong material that can absorb bite forces and also contains stain-resistant properties. Porcelain is translucent and can be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth, providing a lifelike smile improvement. Once complete, you will return for a second visit so we can place the veneer with a bonding agent.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
The veneer lengthens worn down teeth and provides repair for minor cracks and chips. We may use them to also close gaps between the teeth and correct the appearance of minor misalignment. Our team can mask the permanent teeth stains that may not respond to teeth whitening, and also address misshapen teeth as well. With proper care and attention, you can expect them to last for decades to come! Prior to placement, we may also whiten your teeth to ensure your restoration blends with your brightest possible smile!
Caring for Your New Restoration
How do you keep them strong and bright? To start, be sure you take time daily to brush and floss your teeth, which removes stray food particles and limits the risk of decay and gum disease, two factors that could impact the teeth your restorations are attached to. You should also see us for regular visits every six months, so we can keep an eye on your smile and also remove plaque buildup completely. At home, try to enjoy a healthier diet with fewer sugary snacks or drinks. If you have any questions about our cosmetic treatment options, or if you would like a more attractive smile, then contact our team today.
