Porcelain Veneers at Richard S. Bernstein D.D.S, Farmington Hills
One of the staples of cosmetic dentistry is veneers. They are about .3mm to .5mm thick, and bonded over your natural teeth. Like veneer on your countertops, they are extremely strong once bonded. They can be used to cover any number of teeth, to create the desired effect.
Porcelain veneers are a two-appointment procedure. Here you will get superior quality veneers, with Dr. Richard Bernstein's dedication to excellence:
- Design - A diagnostic wax-up (prototype) is created, showing the length, shape, design, and proportions of your ideal smile. It provides the template for your smile.
- Preparation - Minimal tooth reduction is needed to accommodate this thin wafer of porcelain. You will be provided with an acrylic provisional (temporary) veneer, while the permanent one is being fabricated.
- Color and detail - This is perhaps the most important element of veneers. You will be provided a shade guide, which you can hold against your teeth and choose the color you love. Our veneers, like natural teeth are actually multi-color, with blended, subtle nuances and transparencies to give a youthful look to your teeth, making you look 10-15 years younger!
- Refinement - Your veneers are not placed, until you love the color. Adjustment will be made at your request, and you will have the option of visiting our lab to select the precise coloration you want.
Dr. Bernstein had porcelain veneers on his own teeth for 17 years before they needed replacing. After that length of time, they did not fracture, loosen, or cause decay. They were in excellent condition; he simply replaced them because he wanted a lighter color.
