Do you find yourself covering your smile when it’s time for group photos?
Has your smile ever made you feel self-conscious? If so, you’ll want to ask our cosmetic dentists about porcelain veneers.
Our Jenison dentists will be able to discuss the pros and cons of veneers so you can make an informed decision for your smile.
Dental veneers are thin custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials (like porcelain) designed to cover the fronts of your teeth. Not only do dental veneers look like natural tooth enamel, but they are also highly stain resistant. Porcelain veneers can hide front teeth that are chipped, discolored, irregularly shaped, or crooked.
To prepare for veneers, your dentist will create a unique model of your teeth. This model is sent to a dental technician who creates your veneers. Before placing your new veneer, your family dentist will need to conservatively prepare your tooth to achieve the desired aesthetic result.
Take care of your veneer teeth like you would natural teeth. This means brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once daily.
While a porcelain veneer is a stain-resistant, your dentist may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile.
