When people look to Botox and dermal fillers for cosmetic improvement, they’re hoping to reverse many common signs of aging. To help our Burbank, CA, patients enjoy better oral health and a more attractive visage, our team offers an alternative to these treatments with porcelain veneers. Let’s find out how porcelain veneers provide a Smile Facelift®.
What is a Smile Facelift®?
Basically, instead of using injectable solutions, we use common cosmetic treatments to help improve facial structure by providing greater levels of support. The support for your smile and face means fewer wrinkles, fuller cheeks, and a reduction in other common signs of aging. Your tooth structure often impacts the appearance of your lips, cheeks, jaw, and overall facial structure. We start by using digital technology, such as the iTero® system, to gather a series of images and create a detailed 3D model of your smile. We can then design restorations, such as veneers, that are created to reflect your unique facial appearance and offer improvement to not just the appearance of your teeth, but your entire face as well. The results could include better facial symmetry and better tooth esthetics without the need for surgery or injectable treatments. In as little as two visits, we could transform your smile!
A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain we place onto the front facing side of your teeth, instantly changing the shape and color of them. Porcelain is not only durable and able to absorb bite forces, but is translucent like tooth enamel and can be shaded to match the color of the nearby teeth. We remove a thin layer of enamel and then take detailed digital image, designing and crafting them as we mentioned above. We then place the final restoration onto the front-facing sides of the teeth with a powerful bonding agent. In addition to facial esthetics, we can also improve the shape of the tooth, brighten them, close gaps between them, and lengthen worn down teeth. We can repair chips and cracks, and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment.
To get started, simply call our office today to schedule a consultation. We will carefully examine your smile and create a personalized treatment plan to help you enjoy a healthier and more attractive one. We will address your smile goals and discuss tips for keeping your newly restored smile brighter and in better health.
