When you have more than a single esthetic concern, then you may assume you need more than one cosmetic treatment. However, with porcelain veneers your Syosset, NY, dentist can actually correct multiple esthetic issues at once, providing a conservative smile makeover and even instant orthodontic care for some patients.
Creating Your Porcelain Veneers
There is no one-size-fits-all approach, as every single one is specifically made for your smile. To custom-make them, we begin by administering a numbing agent to the area around the tooth. We then remove a layer of enamel to make room for the restoration. Next, we gather detailed images with digital scanning technology, using them to create a 3D computer model. In a dental lab, we use the images and measurements to create the veneers from porcelain. Not only is this material strong and durable, but porcelain contains stain-resistant properties and can be color-matched to blend with your smiles seamlessly. We may even whiten your teeth beforehand to ensure they match your brightest possible smile.
Placing Them and Keeping Them Bright
When your custom porcelain veneers are ready, you will return to the office. We will check the fit to ensure proper balance, and then attach them with a powerful bonding agent. Wirth proper care and attention, they can stay bright and stay in place for decades to come. Just maintain the same level of care you would for your natural teeth, including brushing and flossing, a healthier diet, and routine visits for checkups and cleanings. These actions help protect the natural tooth structure behind your restorations, and also safeguard the rest of your smile as well.
Instant Orthodontics and More
When in place, they can instantly correct the appearance of minor misalignment, providing an alternative to braces or aligners for some patients. Placement could also be used to repair minor chips and cracks, and lengthen worn-down teeth as well. We could employ them to reshape misshapen teeth, mask permanent teeth stains, and even close embarrassing gaps between your teeth, such as black triangle spaces. In as little as two visits, we have the potential to completely transform your smile and give you one you cannot wait to show the world.
