If you have issues with the alignment of your teeth, then the overall health of your smile can suffer. In addition to problems with your smile’s appearance, misalignment also poses a greater risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ disorder. However, did you know that we can often correct the appearance of smiles in Johnston, IA, with porcelain veneers?
Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers
Question: How do you prepare my smile?
Answer: We first need to make room for the new restoration, which mean removing a small segment of surface structure. After doing so, we take the detailed impressions needed to design and create the veneers.
Question: How do you create the veneers?
Answer: We take the impressions we made and use them in a dental lab setting to design and favorite the restorations. We use porcelain, a strong material that also contains stain-resistant properties. We can also shade the porcelain to help it better blend with the smile. We then place the completed restorations onto the teeth, using a powerful bonding agent to hold them in place.
Question: Can they fix uneven smiles?
Answer: Yes! We often use them to address the appearance of minor misalignment, helping you achieve a straighter looking smile without relying on extended orthodontic treatment. We can also use them to mask teeth stains, close gaps between teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and address malformed teeth.
Question: What maintenance do they require?
Answer: You will care for them as you would the rest of your smile, which means you need to continue brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every night before bed. We also urge patients to make time every six months to see us for checkups and cleanings, so we can monitor your smile and help prevent issues that could threaten your restorations.
