At Restoration Smiles, seeing patients get back a gorgeous new smile makes our days. Veneers can dramatically change a smile and are sometimes called “instant orthodontics.” Just a set of veneers can fix stained, chipped, and also highly discolored teeth. They can even change the length and size of your teeth, or help teeth that seem rotated instantly look straight. Though it may sound dramatic, the astonishing visual result is unbelievable. Veneers offer a greatly conservative approach to aesthetic smile makeovers.
Veneers reveal the ultimate in dental art and science and are tailor-made to exactly fit your smile. Just like a contact lens, these paper-thin pieces of porcelain are attached to the surface of your natural teeth. But don’t be mistaken by the thin quality of this material. Several unique features can be included in the ceramics, recreating any look that you desire to achieve.
Although veneers offer a conservative method to fix bad teeth, the steps behind the procedure need a high level of training to give the treatment appropriately. So what is involved in getting a smile like this back to life?
Good Planning Paves The Way
Proper planning of your veneers is crucial to achieving an amazing result. Models, digital x-rays, and photographs let you and Dr. Mai design a perfect blueprint to direct your treatment process from start to end. Just like all other successful projects, this planning can’t be compromised at all costs. She will take into consideration all your input and include your desires into your veneer case, from color to shape and also various other factors.
The Next Steps
When Dr. Mai plans your case, you generally need two appointments to achieve an amazing new smile. At the first appointment, the teeth are carefully set to enable space for the ultra-thin porcelain to be designed over by a master lab technician. Dr. Mai gives all the required information to a specialized lab to build a masterpiece.
Dr. Mai even provides acrylic temporary restorations that resemble the veneers, worn for around three weeks. These temporary restorations give a preview of the general look of your new smile and render additional input regarding the look of your upcoming smile.
Delivering The Magic
After many hours of custom handcraft work in the lab, you gotta come for a second appointment. Dr. Mai will try on with each veneer and examine the look and fit, offering you a chance to get a glimpse of your new look. She will then go through many precise steps to fix the thin veneers to the outer surface of your teeth, developing an extremely strong bond between tooth and porcelain. Little adjustments to your bite and a final polish will give you a smile that will leave you wondering why you just waited for so long to visit Restoration Smiles!
