Even if you have multiple issues with the shape and color of a tooth, we can instantly change its appearance in as little as two visits. To enjoy a smile makeover, we can craft and place custom-made porcelain veneers. In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO, dentist talks about our cosmetic veneers.
Creating and Placing Your Veneers
Every smile is different, which is why we customize our veneers. To create them, we begin by administering a local anesthetic and then gently removing a thin layer of enamel from the teeth. This makes room for the completed dental restoration. Next, we make detailed digital images of the prepared teeth, which we use in a dental lab setting to design and craft the finished product. When your restoration is ready, our team will attach them to the front of the tooth with a powerful bonding agent. They could provide years of quality smile improvement, and the porcelain we craft them from can be color matched to blend with your smile seamlessly.
The Benefits for Smile Beauty
Since they instantly alter the front and sides of the teeth, we can use them to correct misshapen teeth, or ones with minor damage. We can lengthen these teeth too, and also mask permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to most teeth whitening procedures. Placement could also close unsightly gaps between the teeth, and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, providing a straighter looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. As you can see, for many people this can provide a smile makeover in as little as two visits!
Keeping Your Restorations Bright
To keep your restorations bright, and keep them in place by protecting the teeth they’re attached to, you need to maintain good oral health habits. Be sure you brush your teeth twice daily for at least two minutes each time, and floss every evening too. Make time to see our team for a checkup and cleaning visit as well, and try to cut back on your consultation of foods and drinks high in sugar and starch. If you have any questions about how to keep your restoration bright and to protect the health of your smile, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you maintain a bright, beautiful, and strong smile for years to come.
