Consider Veneers to Improve Your Smile
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, then visit Southern Dental Care for Marrero veneers that look like the real thing. You may never have considered covering your discolored or damaged teeth with veneers, but getting veneers is easy from the right dentist. A veneer is customized to fit over a damaged tooth to improve its appearance while protecting it from additional discolorations caused by food or tobacco. A dental laboratory technician uses a mold of a damaged tooth to create a veneer that matches the color of the surrounding teeth. Veneers are made of porcelain or composite materials, and these devices are thin and lightweight.
Veneers Are Designed to Last Many Years
An alternative way to have veneers on your teeth is by having a dentist apply a color-matching liquid substance. A knowledgeable dentist can shape and polish this material until it has a natural appearance. You don’t need to worry about chewing food or drinking beverages after having veneers attached to your teeth, and you care for the items in the same way as natural teeth. A dentist attaches a porcelain veneer to a tooth’s surface with durable resins, and the restorations can change the shape or size of teeth to create a more beautiful smile. Veneers are designed to last for many years, and a dentist will examine the items during your checkups every six months.
We Recommend Teeth-Whitening Before Applying Veneers
At Southern Dental Care, we recommend having a teeth-whitening procedure before having veneers applied to your teeth. By having professional teeth whitening, it is possible to lift the stains from your teeth before creating the color-matching veneers. Whitening your teeth makes a drastic difference in the way your face looks. A teeth-whitening procedure requires having a substance brushed onto your gums and restorations as protection from a hydrogen peroxide solution. After your restorations and gums are protected, our dentist applies the hydrogen peroxide solution to your teeth. To help this mixture work faster, we use a cool light that dries the solution. The combination of hydrogen peroxide and water leads to a bubbling reaction that lifts stains from the surfaces of your teeth, including along the gums and between teeth. In less than one hour, you can rinse away the solution, and you will notice a difference in the appearance of your teeth right away. With this method, a dentist can determine where to place veneers inside your mouth because the teeth that still have discolorations require a restoration.
