The Versatility Of Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Jeanette Murphy, your Monroe, MI, dentist, uses porcelain veneers to completely transform patient smiles. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, veneers can correct almost any cosmetic issue. Treat yourself to a set of porcelain veneers and you can get the smile you've always wanted!

Fix any cosmetic issue

Veneers are an incredible way to redesign your whole smile without undergoing a single surgery. Porcelain is the highest quality material for veneers, and the result is always a beautiful smile. Each veneer is a thin porcelain shell that fits around your tooth and changes its appearance. Stained teeth, crooked teeth, and even small gaps in teeth can all be corrected with veneers.

Getting veneers

In only two or three appointments, a full set of veneers can give you the smile you've always wanted. First, you'll discuss everything you are looking to correct with your dentist. Veneers change the shape and shade of your teeth to correct almost any cosmetic issue.

Your teeth may need to be prepared for veneers. In that case, your dentist performs some minor filing, to make room for the veneers around your teeth. Next, molds are taken of your newly prepared teeth. These are used to ensure a perfect fit when your custom veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory. At a final appointment, each veneer is bonded into place and you leave the office with a new smile!

Lasting beauty

When you have veneers and take great care of your teeth, your smile will remain healthy and beautiful. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. If you grind your teeth at night, your dentist may recommend a nightguard to protect your new veneers. When you get a full set of veneers at your Monroe, MI, dentist, the porcelain reflects light and resists staining, so your smile will stay bright and sparkling!
