Porcelain Veneers in Livonia
Are you dealing with cracks, chips, gaps, misshapen teeth, and stains in and on your teeth? Are you embarrassed to smile, and hide behind closed lips? First impressions are important, and if you keep your smile hidden, you’re simply not putting your best face forward. The good news is you don’t have to live with imperfections. You can experience exceptional cosmetic dentistry in Livonia. Consider enhancing your smile with porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
If you want to dramatically change the look of your smile with a single procedure, porcelain veneers might be right for you. These ultra-thin shells of porcelain can refresh your smile by changing the size, color, shape, and even the alignment of your front teeth. Light reflects from veneers as it does from natural tooth enamel, so veneers create beautiful, natural-looking smiles. Porcelain veneers are durable and stain-resistant, so you can enjoy your gorgeous smile for years to come.
Porcelain veneers can correct:
- Small teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Dark stains and yellowing
- Cracks or chips
- Worn or uneven teeth
Our highly trained Livonia cosmetic dentists can help you determine what type of porcelain veneer is right for you. Selecting porcelain veneers is much more than choosing a shade of white. Your dentist will consult with you about smiles you admire and what qualities make them attractive to you. We’ll discuss your personality and lifestyle, and keep your unique attributes in mind when designing your restoration, including:
- Size, shape, and color of your teeth
- Face shape
- Shape and size of your lips
- Size and contour of your gums
- Skin, hair, and eye color
Procedures for Porcelain Veneers
Traditional veneers require two visits to our Livonia office. During the first appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth and remove a thin layer of enamel to prep the tooth for the application. You’ll receive a temporary set of veneers to wear until your handcrafted prosthetic arrives, which takes about two weeks. Our Livonia cosmetic dentistry office will send your impressions to a quality dental lab, and a talented ceramist will craft your custom veneers. You then return to our office for permanent placement. Once the bonding procedure is complete, you’ll leave our office with a dazzling new smile.
With proper care, your porcelain veneers will resist staining, chipping, and cracking, and last for as long as 15 years.
