Say goodbye to chipped, cracked, or severely discolored teeth with porcelain veneers. These thin, tooth-colored coverings are custom-made and secured to the front of teeth by our Cadillac cosmetic dentists for a seamless smile. Thanks to veneers, changing the color, shape, size, and length of your teeth is possible.
What to Know Before Getting Veneers
The biggest thing our cosmetic dentists want all patients interested in theto know is that there is no going back. That’s because once a portion of your natural tooth enamel is removed to allow for placement of the veneers, it doesn’t grow back. For this reason alone, we want you to be sure of your decision.
Once a plan has been agreed upon, we will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of your tooth’s enamel for the best veneers fit. Our dentists will then take a few molds of your teeth so that yourcan be crafted in a dental lab.
While the porcelain veneers are being worked on in the lab, you will receive a temporary set to wear in the meantime. After 1-2 weeks, our dentists will cement the permanent veneers onto your teeth in our Cadillac dental office for breathtaking results.
Versatility of Porcelain Veneers
The wonderful thing about porcelain veneers is that our cosmetic dentists can use them to create a natural looking, beautiful new smile for you. Similar to tooth enamel, dental porcelain is tough and translucent, but does not stain like natural teeth. That means you can enjoy a whiter smile for years.
Porcelain veneers can be used to improve the following:
- Color: Veneers are available in numerous shades to cover up any stains left over on your teeth from lifestyle habits or various foods and drinks.
- Size and Shape:Excessive grinding can leave teeth worn down and not ideally shaped. Veneers can be shaped and sized in a way that best flatters your face.
- Alignment and Spacing: Slight corrections in alignment or small gaps between teeth can be improved upon with veneers.
