Dental Veneers Burton, MI

This is one way to quickly get that beautiful smile. Veneers and Laminates are thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost tooth structure where indicated.

Your dentist will do a complete examination of your teeth to determine if veneers are ideal for you. Veneers often provide the opportunity to dramatically transform the aesthetics of your teeth and smile.

Veneers can enhance the shape of your teeth, make your teeth as white as you want, and give you the smile you have always desired. Additionally, Veneers are bonded to your tooth structure, which gives them strength.

Since they are very thin, Veneers are considered one of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available. Most of the time, very little or no tooth structure is removed before placing veneers. Ask your dentist how veneers can improve your smile.

When you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, veneers can help you makeover your smile in a conservative way that allows you to maintain the structure of your natural teeth. A veneer is made of a thin, translucent porcelain that closely mimics the appearance of a tooth. It is bonded over the surface of the teeth, encapsulating its facade. You can use veneers to completely transform the size, shape, and color of your teeth.

Many people choose veneers to make a good smile better. This type of treatment is the choice of many Hollywood stars, thanks to its natural look and transformative results. Furthermore, veneers are made from durable material that is stain and fracture resistant. Under proper care, veneers can last for many years.

What It’s Like Getting Veneers

Veneers – also known as laminates – are applied in your dentist’s office. The process starts with an in-office consultation. During this time, you can express your concerns to your dentist, who can then explain if and how veneers can help you achieve your goals. The goal is to provide realistic expectations of the types of results you can achieve with cosmetic veneers.

If you are a candidate for veneers, you will work with your dentist to decide on the right size, shape, and shade for your teeth. Then, your dentist will reducing your teeth and prepare their surface for bonding. Next, the dentist will make an impression of your teeth, which the dental lab will use to fabricate your laminates. While you wait for your veneers to be completed, your dentist may apply temporary laminates on your teeth. Finally, you will return for the final veneer placement and your finished look. Note that while it is normal for the teeth to be sensitive following veneer preparation and placement, this discomfort is only temporary.

Taking Care of Your Veneers

Veneers are durable, but still breakable. It is important to follow the dentist’s post-treatment care instructions closely and continue to visit for regular exams and cleanings. You should also avoid chewing on hard foods that could threaten the structural integrity of your veneers or cause them to break. This can include hard candy and ice. If you participate in sports or high-impact activities that increase the risk of mouth trauma or have a history of nighttime tooth grinding, talk to your dentist about a custom mouth guard that can help protect your veneers against breakage.
