How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
Our team will create porcelain shells that fit your teeth perfectly and are stable enough not to fall off while you are eating, drinking, or going through your daily life. First, you need to visit our office for an exam, where our dentist will make casts of your teeth so that they can craft the shells perfectly. First, your teeth are slightly filed to make room for the shells. This process is fairly painless, but we can use a numbing agent to ensure that you don’t feel a thing.
Your teeth need to be filed down so that the shells fit perfectly and look nice when you’re flashing a smile! After your teeth are filed down, the dentist will make a mold of your teeth. You will then be given temporary shells to cover your teeth while your permanent ones are being prepared. Most people have the brand new smile of their dreams within just a few short weeks.
Porcelian Versus Resin
Porcelain shells are by far the most preferable way to treat your teeth, but you can also get resin ones as well. Although resin tends to be quicker than porcelain, it’s also a lot less stable. If you want to keep your brand new teeth for the long run, you’re better off going with porcelain. It’s also less likely to stain over time so that you can enjoy your beautiful while smile for a good long time.
Porcelain also tends to mimic the natural look of white, healthy teeth better than resin. Think of it this way; if you want your smile to last for the long run and be just as beautiful five years from now as it is today, it’s best to invest in the highest quality material possible.
People get porcelain shells for a number of different reasons, but they’re almost all cosmetic. As our smile is one of the defining qualities of our appearance and regularly cited as one of the first things that people see when they look at others, a bad smile can really hurt your social and romantic life. It can also damage your self-esteem. Fortunately, this treatment is a great way to get a beautiful, flawless smile with a minimally invasive treatment.
Cracked and Chipped Teeth
These shells can even out cracked or chipped teeth, giving you a straight and smooth smile that looks like a million bucks. They’re perfect for smoothing out tooth texture and filling in small holes in the teeth.
As we age, our teeth tend to stain more. These shells can help to cover up existing stains and give you a radiant smile. Nothing mars your features more than a dingy, yellowish smile, so if you have some lingering discoloration that whitening treatments won’t eradicate, perhaps it’s time to consider this excellent treatment option.
Over time, our teeth can shift, leading to gaps in our smiles. This treatment can help to fill in those gaps, making your overall smile look a whole lot better. Ultimately, the goal of this treatment is to even out your teeth, make them naturally bright and white, and eliminate any flaws in your smile.
There are plenty of other reasons why people might want to get this treatment done. We understand that everyone is different and will work with you to achieve your goals and get the beautiful smile that you desire. Our primary mandate is to give you the white glove treatment and ensure that you’re delighted with your treatment plan and a new smile.
There are several ways that you can keep your lovely porcelain shells looking their best for the long run. With proper care, good shells can last for years and years. Avoid using your teeth to rip open packages or bottles. The shells can crack, leading to expensive and possibly painful follow-up treatments. Additionally, try not to smoke and brush your teeth or at least rinse with water after drinking coffee, tea, or red wine.
You should also practice good oral care. Make sure that you see your dentist regularly and maintain a good brushing and flossing schedule. The better you care for your teeth, the more magnificent your smile will stay.
