When you talk about a facelift or removing signs of aging, you may assume we’re discussing treatment with Botox or dermal fillers. However, we have an option to offer a Smile Facelift® without using injectable options. Instead, your Burbank, CA, dentist may be able to boost facial beauty with one or more porcelain veneers.
Creating and Placing Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are very thin dental restorations that we place onto the front-facing sides of your teeth. Each one is custom-made to ensure a proper fit and a lifelike appearance. We create them from porcelain, a durable material that can absorb daily bite forces. In fact, porcelain often makes up our crowns, inlays, and onlays. The material is translucent like enamel, and we even shade it to ensure your restorations blend with your smile, offering a lifelike appearance.
To create one, we first remove a very thin layer of outer enamel from the tooth. Next, we take a series of detailed impressions and images, which we use to design and fabricate the restoration. When you return for a second visit, we check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and place the restoration with a powerful bonding agent, which could keep in place for decades to come.
Benefits for Facial Esthetics
Placement could help fill out your smile and facial features, improving fullness in the cheeks, lips, jaw, and facial structure. They will reflect your overall facial structure, and provide an alternative to surgery and injectable options for many patients. Placement improves overall smile symmetry too!
Improving Oral Health
Placement helps correct the appearance of minor misalignment, which provide an alternative to brace sir clear aligners for some patients. We also use the veneers to mask issues with the shape of the teeth, and to also mask permanent discoloration, which may not otherwise respond to teeth whitening. We lengthen worn-down teeth, and repair minor cracks and chips too. We’ve even used them to close unsightly gaps between your teeth. When we address minor damage, this also protects oral health by preventing the onset of cavities or infection due to untreated damage.
