Porcelain veneers offer patients in Tucson, AZ, a chance to enjoy a stunning new smile, correcting a wide array of common cosmetic concerns. In addition, this can all be accomplished in just one visit using advanced technology. In today’s blog, we’re looking at how we create veneers and transform smiles quickly. We’re also talking about the steps needed to maintain a brand new restoration.
The Cosmetic Capabilities
When we place a veneer, the restoration covers the front and sides of a tooth. Which means they can reshape malformed teeth and even repair minor chips and cracks. We’ve used them to lengthen the teeth worn down by bruxism, or to correct the appearance of minor misalignment. We also have the option of masking permanent teeth stains and closing gaps between the teeth. They offer a chance at a complete smile transformation, in as little as one visit!
The E4D System
How do we create and place them in one visit? We employ E4D, a CAD/CAM system that fabricates crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays in one sitting. We begin by removing a small amount of outer structure, which ensures a comfortable fit and more natural appearance. We use intraoral cameras to take detailed images, which will be employed to create a 3D model. We upload the model into the on-site E4D milling machine, which creates the restoration from porcelain. With porcelain, we offer the strength and durability of natural tooth structure, while also creating a restoration that blends with the smile. We next place them using a bonding material.
Preserving Your Newly Restored Smile
Routine care not only protects your natural teeth, but your new veneers as well. You should take time each day to brush your teeth for two minutes, once when you wake up and again before bed. You also need to floss each night before going to bed. Seeing us every six months is also advised, as routine checkups enable us to monitor your newly repaired smile. We also clean your teeth, removing the plaque buildup that could compromise your newly restored smile. If you have any questions about improving your smile’s cosmetics, or about creating and placing a custom restoration in one visit, then contact our team today. We’re ready to help you on the road toward a more beautiful smile.
