If your smile is beginning to look a little worse for wear, we can take a cosmetic approach to improve its appearance. When multiple imperfections appear on the surface of your teeth, it can seem difficult to know how to treat them. Fortunately, a set of porcelain veneers can address many issues with the same treatment. This versatile cosmetic option helps with chips and cracks, discoloration, and even minor spacing issues. We could suggest a new set of veneers to restore your smile after a significant grinding habit for example.
At your Ankeny, IA, dental office, we understand that how you feel about your smile is vital to your sense of well-being. While certain imperfections may not affect your oral health, they can seriously hurt your self-confidence. That’s one of the reasons the right cosmetic treatment can be so valuable.
We Can Restore Your Smile’s Beauty
Porcelain veneers provide a wonderful option for restoring a host of cosmetic flaws because they simply fit over your existing smile. Instead of planning a series of repairs to each tooth, we design a set of beautiful, uniformly shaped caps to fix the front of your smile. This means we can address problems with the shape of individual teeth, lost height, and physical chips or cracks in their surface.
This is also a great option for correcting discoloration problems that professional teeth whitening cannot help. When your yellowing smile is due to the loss of your enamel, bleaching gel cannot return your original white look. By selecting the color of your veneers, you instantly receive the bright, white look you so desire!
Designing Your New Restorations
When you attend your first visit to explore cosmetic restoration, we will explain the process in detail. Moving forward, we will numb your teeth and take a small portion from the front of their surface to prepare the room for your new smile. Afterward, we take a series of digital images to create a computerized impression of your grin. This allows the software to plan the specific design of your new teeth. When the porcelain caps are complete, you will return to a second visit for placement. We will check your caps to see that they fit and make any adjustments necessary. By permanently bonding your veneers to your smile, you enjoy striking results instantly!
To care for your restorations, continue practicing a rigorous oral hygiene routine. Because your original smile is intact below, you require the same standard of care to fight tooth decay and gum disease. At subsequent checkups, we will inspect your restorations to see that they are properly maintained.
