Porcelain Veneers Can Reshape Your Smile

When you have more than one cosmetic concern with your smile, then you could undergo a smile makeover with one or more porcelain veneers. With these cosmetic treatments, our team can help transform the smile in just two visits. In today’s blog, your Charles City, IA, dentist looks at reshaping smiles with porcelain veneers.

The Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that we attach to the front of your teeth. Porcelain is a material that is very strong and can absorb daily bite forces and pressures. This is why we also use the same material to create custom crowns or even replacement teeth, such as bridges or dental implant restorations.

We can also shade it to blend with the rest of the smile seamlessly, so you have a more attractive appearance with lifelike results. Our team can use them to address multiple cosmetic concerns at once, for many offering a smile makeover in as little as one to two visits. If you have multiple issues with the appearance of your smile, then you should consider contacting our team for a consultation and to see if restorations are right for you. If so, we can offer a new smile!

Your Smile Makeover

Since each one covers the front and sides of a tooth, our team can place them to mask permanent teeth stains that could otherwise resist whitening treatments. We also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you can have a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. Placement could repair minor chips and cracks, reshape malformed teeth, and even close embarrassing gaps between your teeth too. For a true makeover, we could also combine these with other cosmetic treatments, such as professional teeth whitening, bonding and contouring, and even clear aligners.

Creating and Placing Your Teeth

We custom-make each one we place for our patients. To get started, we will numb the tooth or teeth being treated so we can gently and carefully remove a very thin layer of outer enamel. Doing so makes room for your restoration. We then take detailed digital images from multiple angles, and use them in a lab setting to design and craft your final restorations. When they’re ready, you will return for a second visit so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. We then attach the finished restorations with a powerful bonding agent, so they can stay in place for years to come.

If you have any questions about how we design and place porcelain veneers to offer a more attractive smile, then contact our team today to learn more.
