Dental Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Do you have stained, misshapen teeth or gaps between your teeth? What if a single cosmetic treatment could address these concerns at once? With our custom porcelain veneers, our team can improve the beauty of your smile in just visits. In today’s blog, your Shrewsbury, MI, dentist looks at the benefits of porcelain veneers.

The Cosmetic Potential

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are placed onto the front of the teeth, instantly reshaping them and masking multiple cosmetic imperfections. The porcelain material can be color matched to blend with your smile, and can also absorb daily bite forces with ease. Our team can place them to mask teeth stains that don’t respond to traditional whitening treatments. We can also use them to close gaps between the teeth, reshape malformed teeth, and repair minor damage. They can even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you can enjoy a straighter-looking smile without the need for braces or aligners.

How We Place Your Cosmetic Restorations

The placement process begins with our team numbing the tooth being treated so we can gently remove a thin layer of enamel to make room for your final restoration. Our team next gathers detailed digital images and measurements of the prepared tooth, which we use in a lab setting to design and fabricate your custom veneers from porcelain. When they’re ready, you will return for a second visit so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. The last step is to attach it with a powerful bonding agent, transforming the beauty of your smile.

Keeping Your Restorations Bright

Following placement, you can take action to ensure these cosmetic restorations can truly last for years to come. The same factors that stain your teeth or leave them vulnerable to being lost, such as cavities, infections, and periodontal disease, can compromise veneers too. So be sure you brush and floss your teeth daily and try to limit how much sugar and starch is in your diet. Be sure you see our team for a checkup and cleaning so we can monitor your smile and identify possible risks in the early stages, so we can address them to preserve your smile and your new restorations.
