Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you when you walk into a room. If it’s been married by physical imperfections or significant staining problems, it can impact your self-confidence and leave you looking for cosmetic dental solutions.
Here at our office, one of the most effective methods our dentists offer for restoring your smile is to fit your teeth with dental veneers. Dental veneers in Kimball, Michigan, are basically thin, porcelain shells that are custom made in a dental lab to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile.
The veneers can be shaded to a scintillatingly white luster. The porcelain material will not be as receptive to future stains like natural tooth enamel might be. This will make it much easier to maintain your white smile for many years to come.
Your dentists will start by conducting a thorough examination of the teeth in your smile to make sure that each one has sufficient enamel to securely mount a veneer. Should one or two of your teeth lack sufficient enamel to mount a veneer, they might recommend having it restored by a porcelain dental crown.
Your dentists will then remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth to provide a texture for the strong dental adhesive to bond with. Next, they will cast a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to one of our off-site dental labs where your porcelain veneers will be meticulously crafted.
We will call you back in for a second appointment once the lab technician has completed the veneers. To install the veneers, your dentists will cement them into place.
