Porcelain Veneers Cosmetic Dentists Ann Arbor Clarkston Plymouth MI

Porcelain veneers are just one of many options to improve the appearance of your smile. Whether you have a chipped front tooth or wish to improve the shade of your enamel, veneers can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. To learn if you’re a candidate, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with one of our cosmetic dentists in Ann Arbor, Clarkston, and Plymouth, MI.

In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about the veneers procedure and the many benefits it can bring to your smile.

Improve the Appearance of Front Teeth

Veneers are designed to enhance the appearance of front teeth, mainly the ones that show when you smile and talk. If you have small cosmetic issues that affect the front teeth, you may be a candidate for the veneers procedure.

Repair Small Chips and Cracks

Life happens. Whether you got bumped in the mouth or grind your teeth in your sleep, it’s not uncommon to notice chips in your enamel. The good news is that our dentist can use porcelain dental veneers to repair small chips and cracks. That way, you can continue to smile with confidence.

For large chips and cracks, we may recommend dental crowns to restore the full strength and appearance of your smile. While a veneer covers the front surface of your tooth, a crown acts like a “cap” that fits over your entire tooth.

Cover Staining from Fluorosis or Antibiotics

Not all stains happen at the surface level. Sometimes staining affects the entire structure of the teeth. When this happens, you won’t be able to use traditional whitening methods to improve the appearance of your smile.

Patients who have been overexposed to fluoride or who have taken certain antibiotics may have a higher risk of intrinsic staining. Under these circumstances, our dentists may recommend the porcelain veneers procedure.

Close Small Gaps Between Teeth

Some gaps will need to be closed with metal braces or aligners. For this reason, it’s important that you consult with one of our dentists to determine what treatment option is right for you. That being said, dental veneers can be used to close small gaps between front teeth that don’t require orthodontics.

Boost Your Confidence

Do you often cover your mouth when you laugh or smile with your lips closed? It’s not uncommon for people to hide their smiles when they feel self-conscious. If this describes your situation, we encourage you to set up an appointment with one of our cosmetic dentists.

During your consultation, they’ll be able to determine if you’re a candidate for veneers and will outline your next steps so you know exactly what to expect. After veneer treatment, you’ll be able to look and feel your best.

Other Treatment Options

Please keep in mind that veneers are not your only option for improving your smile. For example, we may recommend a dental crown to restore a tooth after significant decay or injury. Likewise, we may recommend take-home teeth whitening trays to remove surface-level stains.

Each patient is different, which is why it’s important to weigh your options carefully. Our cosmetic dentists and their staff would also be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about any of the procedures we offer.
