By definition, a veneer is an attractive cover that conceals something’s original appearance. Therefore, dental veneers are thin porcelain sheets used to protect damaged teeth and improve how they look. Also known as laminates, this therapeutic option also adds strength and resiliency to a weakened tooth structure. In cosmetic dentistry, veneers serve more aesthetic purposes to alter teeth’ color, shape, and size. So, if you are unhappy with a misshapen, discolored, or damaged tooth, call Spring Arbor Dental to book a consultation.
The first step is to schedule an appointment with your Jackson, MI dentist. During this visit, it will be determined if a dental veneer is a right solution to achieve your goals. Rest assured, if it is not, we have other quality solutions available. Contact us today to get started on your new and improved smile.
Your dentist will start with a complete exam and smile analysis. This step allows us to determine the best way to complete the result you desire. Additionally, we may create a mock-up so you can preview how the finished veneers will look. It is possible to determine if you will be pleased with the completed dental work through modern diagnostic imaging.
Made of high-quality ceramic material, porcelain veneers effectively replace worn down or damaged enamel. The thin layers are applied with an adhesive. To achieve the most natural look, a small amount of enamel may be removed. This step allows for more space and proper fit. As a result, the veneer will restore the injured tooth for improved mouth function and visual appeal.
A veneer is often the right choice when a patient has a stained, odd-shaped, or otherwise imperfect tooth. Also, porcelain veneers can adequately repair fractured or broken teeth, fix bite issues, close gaps, and help reposition a compromised tooth. For situations where whitening is not an option, veneers can be placed to brighten discolored smiles.
Since all of our cosmetic and restorative dental work is custom-made for each patient, it is nearly impossible to distinguish between a natural tooth and one treated with a veneer. Even more, the advanced ceramic material is resistant to stains. Give Spring Arbor Dental a call now to learn more.
