Our hectic schedules often leave little time for dentist visits. For many people, this means enduring embarrassing smile imperfections. Fortunately, we offer a solution in the form of an innovative cosmetic dental procedure: porcelain veneers. With porcelain veneers, you can obtain a gorgeous new smile in as little as two visits. Your Lake Orion dentist, Dr. Brad Greenfield, offers complete smile transformation without taxing your already full schedule.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of special dental porcelain. Veneers are durable, lasting for several decades with the proper care, which includes maintaining healthy dental habits. In addition, porcelain mimics the translucent qualities of tooth enamel, ensuring a natural looing restoration. Dr. Greenfield also recommends veneers because they are stain resistant, helping your smile stay brighter for longer. Porcelain veneers allow your Lake Orion dentist to:
- Correct the appearance of misalignment
- Mask permanent teeth stains
- Repair broken, fractured, and worn down teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Reshape malformed or damaged teeth
If you have any questions about our porcelain veneers or any of our other cosmetic procedures, schedule a consultation with Dr. Greenfield today.
Receiving Porcelain Veneers
First, your Lake Orion dentist will perform a thorough examination and sit down with you to discuss your smile goals. If Dr. Greenfield decides porcelain veneers are the best choice for addressing your smile issues, he will prepare the surface of your teeth. The preparation involves removing a minuscule layer of enamel to make room for the veneers. He will then take impressions of your smile. An expert ceramist at our dental lab will then use the impression to fabricate your veneers.
When you return to the office, Dr. Greenfield will check the fit for comfort and accuracy. Using a powerful bonding agent, he will place the veneers. In about two visits, you can enjoy a beautiful, bright smile.
