If Your Teeth Look Bad, Help Them Look Great With Veneers
You smile when you’re happy, or at least that’s how it should work. Yet it’s hard to be happy when you’re not satisfied with your smile, which is where cosmetic dentistry becomes useful. If your teeth have stains, you can always try our Zoom! teeth whitening system. If your teeth are chipped, you can get tooth bonding or tooth contouring to fill in or smooth out those chips. But what if you have both problems? You should try dental veneers in Sterling Heights, MI from your dentist at Amber Dental.
What Are Dental Veneers?
The problem with having cosmetic issues with your teeth is that people see them. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be cosmetic issues. But that also means we can focus on fixing the problems with the teeth everyone sees, and that’s exactly what a dental veneer can do. These ultra-thin shells of porcelain are placed on the front of your teeth to hide flaws.
Fixing Flaws in Your Teeth
Because they cover the front of your teeth, a dental veneer can fix any cosmetic issues with those teeth. If the teeth are stained, veneers cover that with porcelain colored to look like wonderfully healthy teeth. If there are chips, grooves, or even thin cracks on your teeth, veneers will cover all of them as well. And by making a veneer just slightly larger than the front of the tooth, it can also cover an irregular shape or small gaps between your teeth. Dental veneers can quickly fix so much that they are often referred to as “instant orthodontics.”
Placing Dental Veneers
Even though dental veneer is very thin, they can still make your teeth look slightly big if they are put on the front of your teeth. To prevent this, Dr. Ardelean will painlessly remove a small layer of enamel from the teeth getting the veneer. This allows the veneer to sit flush with the rest of your smile, making sure they look normal. Once the teeth are prepared, we use a special adhesive to bond the veneers to your teeth.
While the process of placing the veneer is relatively quick, we need to take very accurate measurements to ensure the veneer is made just the right size and shape. It normally takes several appointments from beginning to end, but once complete, your dental veneer will truly make your smile look amazing.
Difference Between Traditional Veneers And Lumineers
With traditional veneer, a small amount of enamel needs to be taken off your teeth. This is so the veneer can be placed flush with your teeth and look normal. But Lumineers are a special kind of dental veneer that’s just as strong but even thinner. In fact, it’s so thin that Dr. Ardelean does not need to remove any enamel. That’s why Lumineers are called prepless veneer.
