Porcelain veneers, offered by your Farmington, MI, dentist, Dr. Stephen Harris, provide a simple solution for many cosmetic dental issues.
What are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are only attached to the fronts of your teeth, the area where imperfections are most noticeable. The fingernail-thin shells are crafted from an impression of your mouth. In most cases, your Farmington dentist will need to remove a thin layer of enamel to ensure the best fit.
How can veneers improve my smile?
Veneers are an excellent option if you're concerned about one or two discolored teeth or want to brighten your entire smile. The restorations are available in many shades and can match the color of surrounding teeth or whiten your smile. In fact, veneers are often the reason that celebrities have such white teeth. The restorations are very resistant to stains.
Wear and tear can take a toll on your body and your smile. Unfortunately, even minor imperfections, like chips or cracks, can be very noticeable. Veneers conceal flaws between a thin layer of porcelain, improving the appearance of your smile.
Do you dislike the shape of a few of your teeth? Even one oddly shaped tooth can be distracting. Veneers improve the shape of problem teeth and make your entire smile look more uniform.
Short teeth can benefit from veneers too. If your teeth have become a little worn down because you grind or clench them while you sleep, you may be a perfect candidate for veneers. Of course, once you receive your veneers, you'll want to wear a nightguard to prevent damage to your restorations or your teeth.
Even slight gaps between your teeth can make you want to hide your teeth. Luckily, veneers cover those annoying spaces. (Large gaps may require orthodontic treatment.)
