Porcelain Veneers Provide A Stunning Smile

When you have more than one issue with the appearance of your smile, you may benefit from our porcelain veneers. These are thin cosmetic restorations that we can place to instantly improve the shape and color of your teeth! In today’s blog, your Fort Bliss, TX, dentist talks about the benefits of our porcelain veneers.

The Cosmetic Improvement Potential

Porcelain veneers are very thin dental restorations that fit over the front of a tooth. When in place, they instantly change the shape and color of the teeth, so we can address an array of cosmetic imperfections all at once. For example, placement could mask permanent teeth stains that resist traditional whitening systems. In addition, we can reshape malformed teeth, correct dental damage, and lengthen structures worn down by teeth grinding. Placement could also close gaps between the teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter looking smile instantly, without the need for braces or aligners.

How We Custom-Make These Restorations

To ensure optimal beauty and a balanced bite, we will custom-make them. To begin, we will numb the tooth receiving one and then remove a thin layer of the enamel to make room for your completed restoration. The next step is to take detailed images and measurements of the area with advanced digital technology, and we will use these in a dental lab setting to design and craft your custom cosmetic restorations. The porcelain we craft them from can handle daily bite forces and pressures with ease, and also has the ability to be custom shaded to match the rest of your smile. We want results that look good and can last for years to come!

Placing Your New Cosmetic Shells

When you arrive for your second visit, we will check the fit and if needed, make some final adjustments to them. We then attach the veneer with a powerful bonding agent, the same we use to secure crowns and dental bridges. They can stay in place for years and remain bright and beautiful, but to help make this a possibility you need to practice good oral hygiene. Be sure you brush and floss daily, eat a healthy diet, avoid tobacco products, and see our team for a checkup and cleaning every six months. These actions help your restorations stay bright and last, and safeguard your natural teeth against cavities and gum disease.
