Our Veneers Can Correct Your Smile Imperfections

When you have multiple cosmetic imperfections with the appearance of your smile, you may assume this will require multiple visits and procedures to address. But in many cases, we can transform your smile in two visits with one procedure. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about our custom porcelain veneers.

Creating a Porcelain Restoration

Each veneer we place is custom-made to ensure it blends with your smile and provides a balanced bite. To get started, we will numb the tooth receiving one and then remove structure from the outside of it. Our team will then take detailed images with digital technology, which we use to create an impression. In a lab setting, our team will then design and craft the restoration. Each veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain, one that is shaded to match your smile and offer a natural appearance. You then return to the office for the placement process!

Placing Your Restoration

Our team will check the fit of the veneer and make any necessary changes before we attach it with a powerful bonding agent. Once secured, this has the potential to last for years to come. To keep them bright and also protect the teeth we’ve secured them to, you need to brush and floss daily and eat a healthy diet, and of course, see our team for a checkup and cleaning every six months. These actions protect the tooth from cavities, infection, and gum disease, and keep the surface of your new restoration bright.

The Cosmetic Concerns We Address

Now, what cosmetic issues can we correct with the placement of porcelain restorations? Our team can use them to reshape malformed teeth and also repair minor chips and cracks. We can improve bite balance in the process, and also lengthen the teeth worn down by teeth grinding. Porcelain veneers also close embarrassing gaps between your teeth and can correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you obtain a straighter looking smile without the need for orthodontics. For many people, these offer a smile makeover in as little as two visits. We could whiten your teeth beforehand to ensure they match your brightest smile, or combine them with bonding and contouring.

If you have any questions about how we treat multiple cosmetic concerns with the placement of our custom porcelain veneers, or if you want to learn about our other cosmetic treatment options, then contact our team today to find out more.
