Do you wish your smile could be brighter? Are your teeth misaligned, or damaged due to cracks or chips? Many people avoid taking the necessary steps to improve their smiles because they don’t have the time for multiple procedures and office visits. Thankfully, a dental procedure exists that straightens teeth, erases stains, and repairs dental damage in as little as two visits. In today’s blog, your Livonia cosmetic dentist, Dr. James Stewart, discusses the benefits, and convenience, of porcelain veneers.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin wafers of special dental porcelain. Placed on your front teeth, porcelain veneers provide instant smile rejuvenation. Veneers are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your smile and offer dramatic dental restoration.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain reflects light in a similar manner as tooth enamel, so your veneers look completely natural. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, and with the proper care, can provide decades of repair. Veneers can reshape teeth, lengthening them and erasing any irregularities. With veneers, patients can address a variety of dental issues, including:
- Permanent stains
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Placing Your Veneers
The first step for receiving porcelain veneers is a consultation with cosmetic dentist, Dr. Stewart. After a visit and a thorough oral examination, Dr. Stewart will decide if porcelain veneers provide the best method of addressing your dental needs. If so, then Dr. Stewart will prepare the surface of your teeth, and take x-rays and an impression of your bite. The impression and x-rays will be sent to a lab, where an expert ceramist will create your custom veneers based on Dr. Stewart’s exact specifications. Once completed, Dr. Stewart will check the fit and shading of the veneers. Then, your porcelain veneers will be placed using a powerful bonding agent. When you leave, you will have a bright, beautiful smile.
