Shelby Township Mi Porcelain Veneers Dentist

Do you ever feel self-conscious of small chips, cracks, or stains affecting your front teeth? If so, it’s time to schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist in Shelby Township, MI. During your consultation, Dr. Nazarian will help you explore your treatment options and will be able to determine if you’re a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

Here are the top reasons to choose porcelain dental veneers for your smile.

1. Cover Chips, Cracks, and Discoloration

Dental veneers are able to fix small cosmetic issues that are visible when you smile or talk. During your consultation, our dentist will be able to determine if you’re a likely candidate for veneers. For example, we may recommend veneers to close slight gaps between front teeth.

If the tooth is fragile, we may instead recommend a crown to restore the tooth to its natural strength and appearance. Either way, our dentist will be able to find the right solution for your smile.

2. Keep More Natural Tooth Structure

Once you remove enamel, it’s gone for good. Fortunately, we only need to remove a small amount of enamel from the fronts of your teeth to make room for the veneers. Since the veneers procedure is noninvasive, you may not even need local anesthetic while our dentist removes enamel.

While porcelain veneers are only bonded to the fronts of your teeth, a dental crown has to fit over the entire tooth. This means that we would have to remove more tooth structure for a crown than for a veneer.

3. Smile with Confidence

The dental veneers procedure takes two trips to our office. During your first visit, we’ll remove enough enamel from the fronts of your teeth so there’s space for the porcelain veneers. Otherwise, the porcelain veneers will make your teeth seem large and bulky. Next, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab. To protect your teeth in the meantime, we’ll place temporary veneers.

When you return to our office, your teeth veneers will be ready. Our dentist will make sure the tooth restorations match the color of your natural enamel. That way, you can smile with confidence after leaving our office. We may also need to slightly adjust the fit of the dental veneers so they look and feel natural. Cosmetic dentistry is as much an art as it is a science.

4. Prevent Tooth Discoloration

Practicing good oral hygiene and being conscious of the foods you eat can help your veneers last for years to come. For example, porcelain veneers can chip if you bite down on ice and stain if you drink too much coffee. If you take good care of your veneers, you can expect them to last for years.

5. Enjoy Simple Maintenance

While veneers are stain-resistant, you’ll still need to brush your teeth twice a day and floss once daily to maintain good oral health. Also, make sure you schedule regular dental checkups with our cosmetic dentist. This easy maintenance will help keep your veneers pearly white so you can enjoy a beautiful healthy smile.

Since dental veneers are non-porous, they are able to resist permanent stains and cavities better than natural tooth enamel. In other words, minimal effort is needed to maintain veneers.
