Veneers are wafer-thin slices of porcelain bonded to the fronts of your teeth that show when you smile and talk. If you have ever felt self-conscious about your smile, you owe it to yourself to schedule a consultation with one of our Grand Haven cosmetic dentists. Porcelain veneers can be used to cover teeth that are chipped, worn, or discolored.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

There are many benefits to porcelain veneers, including:

  • They look completely natural and can’t be detected upon a casual glance
  • They’re durable and can hold up to normal wear and tear
  • They can correct minor imperfections, including slightly crooked front teeth
  • They resist staining better than tooth enamel

If you’re interested in porcelain veneers, ask our dentists about your cosmetic dentistry options.

The Veneers Procedure

The veneers procedure takes two appointments. During your first visit with us, our veneers dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the fronts of your teeth. This is done so the dental veneers won’t make your teeth seem large or bulky. Next, we’ll take dental impressions to send to the lab where your veneers will be made. We’ll place temporary veneers over your teeth while you wait.

When you return to our office, your veneers will be ready. Our dentist will check the color, size, and shape of your dental veneers. Once our dentist is satisfied with how your porcelain veneers look, they’ll clean, polish, and etch the fronts of your receiving teeth. That way, the veneers will create a strong bond with your teeth once they’re cemented in place. With proper care, your porcelain veneers will last for years to come.

At Grand Haven Smiles, we’re happy to explain the veneers procedure at your next dental exam in order to help you make the best choice for your teeth. To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Haven, MI veneers dentists, give our office a call at (616) 209-4704.
