Porcelain veneers are the perfect solution for healthy teeth that could use a little makeover. What are dental veneers? Dental veneers are very thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the fronts of teeth to change a smile’s shape, size, and appearance. These restorations are recommended for fixing severe discoloration, chips, fractures, wide gaps, and other surface flaws.
Your dentists in Waterford use EMax, all porcelain veneers to turn tired teeth into a Hollywood smile. If you have teeth discoloration that is not responding to whitening treatment or major imperfections that can’t be repaired by dental bonding, veneers may just be the solution.
Veneers placement begins with a consultation with your dentist. This is the best time to discuss your goals and expectations. Dr. Heuerman or Dr. Ratz will then examine your mouth and make treatment recommendations. Each patient is different, so your dentists in Waterford make sure that they work with you closely to create a treatment plan that suits your budget and preferences.
Your dentist prepares the tooth for veneers by removing a bit of enamel from the tooth surface to make room for the cosmetic dental veneers. After teeth preparation, impressions of your teeth will be taken. These will be used as a guide for fabricating your permanent veneer. Once the permanent veneer is ready, it is bonded to the tooth, adjusted, and polished.
Veneers are applied only to healthy teeth. Problems like gum disease or decay must be treated first before veneers can be placed. Find out if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers. Contact our Waterford, MI dental office by calling 248-257-5394 or using the online appointment form.
