Improving Smiles With Lifelike Porcelain Veneers

April 4, 2023

What if one procedure could offer the same cosmetic improvements that teeth whitening, dental bonding, and dental contouring do, all at once? With porcelain veneers, we can provide dramatic smile improvement. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist discusses how we improve smiles with porcelain veneers.

Starting Your Cosmetic Improvements

First, we want to sit down with you and talk about your smile, and the issues you want to see addressed. Next, we will conduct a detailed examination of your smile, so we can assess the cause and extent of your cosmetic concerns. With digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, we can provide a diagnosis with precision and accuracy. We then decide if porcelain veneers are right for you. If so, we will get started right away!

Creating and Placing Our Veneers

The first visit involves our team gently numbing the tooth or teeth that we’ll be restoring. Next, we will gently remove a thin layer of enamel to make room for the porcelain veneers. Next, we will take detailed images of the teeth from multiple angles, and use them to create a digital impression. In between your visits, we will employ the impressions and images to design and fabricate your finished restorations. When you return, we will check the fit and if necessary, make some final adjustments. Finally, our team will attach the completed restorations with a powerful bonding agent. This will secure your restoration for years to come, so you can smile with confidence.

The Common Issues We Address

The porcelain material that we use is very strong, and in fact, is also used to craft crowns and even replacement teeth too. The material not only handles daily bite forces with ease, but we can shade it to blend with your smile seamlessly as well. Once your restorations are in place. They will change the shape and color of your teeth. We can mask permanent teeth stains, the mind that teeth whitening alone cannot address. We can also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter looking smile without the need for braces or aligners. Placement also repairs minor damage, corrects misshapen teeth, closes embarrassing gaps between teeth, and even lengthens worn down teeth too. For many, this is a complete smile makeover in only two visits!
