A number of factors could lead to issues with our smile’s appearance, from permanent discoloration to gaps or misshapen teeth. You may assume multiple procedures would be necessary to address them. However, your Omaha, NE, dentist can use porcelain veneers to provide a convenient way to improve smile beauty with one procedure.
Crafting a Custom Restoration
A porcelain veneer is a wafer-thin restoration that we place onto the front facing side of a tooth. Each one is custom-made to blend with your smile and address esthetic issues. To create them, we begin by removing a thin layer of enamel from the tooth. We then take detailed impressions and images, using them to design a restoration. The porcelain we craft them with is stain-resistant and mimics the translucent nature of outer enamel. We then tint it to better blend with your smile. We may even whiten the teeth beforehand to ensure they match your brightest possible smile.
Placing Your New Veneer
When you return for a second visit, we will attach the restoration with a powerful bonding agent. With proper care and attention, your new veneers could stay in place for decades to come. You need to maintain good oral health, as the teeth we attach them to will still be vulnerable to issues like gum disease and infection, so make sure you brush and floss daily, and see us every six months for routine checkup and cleaning visits. We will examine your smile to keep an eye on your restoration, and then clean the teeth to remove all plaque and tartar from the smile.
Smile Makeover Potential
When placed, they instantly change the appearance of each tooth. We can use them to mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to most teeth whitening options. Placement could also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, offering an alternative to braces for some. We can also use them to repair minor chips and cracks, correct misshapen teeth, and lengthen teeth worn down due to teeth grinding. Placement also closes unsightly gaps in between your smile.
