Improve Your Smile with Veneers

Macomb Michigan Dentist VeneersVeneers are thin but very strong porcelain shells that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth. What can veneers do for your smile?

Veneers can be used to:

  • repair major chips
  • cover unattractive stains and fillings
  • close gaps between teeth
  • correct the appearance of crowded or overlapped teeth as an alternative to braces

Veneers are natural-looking and highly resistant to permanent discoloration from drinking coffee, tea, red wine, or from tobacco smoking.

The best thing about veneers? Completing this dental procedure usually takes just two or three appointments.

During your first visit we assess your smile and plan your treatment. At your next appointment, we prepare your teeth for the porcelain or laminate veneers. They are reshaped slightly to allow for the minimal thickness of the veneer. A mould is then taken of your teeth and sent to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of your customized veneers. In most cases, there is a minimal removal of tooth structure (usually less than 1/4 mm) and it is virtually painless. On your final visit, the veneers are bonded onto your teeth.

Veneers can simply and effectively restore the health and beauty of your teeth and give you the natural-looking white smile – and renewed self-confidence – that you’ve always wanted.
