Answering "What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers from my Michigan Dentist?
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Feeling great about your smile has a large impact on how you carry yourself, and also on how you are perceived by others. Today, there are various cosmetic treatments in dentistry, but perhaps none is as versatile as porcelain veneers. This sole smile enhancement can correct a single turned tooth, or can brighten a dull smile to its most dazzling state. If you have wondered "what are the reasons I might want porcelain veneers from my Michigan dentist," contact us to discover some of the amazing benefits of this treatment.
A dental veneer, which can be crafted from various types of material, is essentially a thin sheet designed in the precise shape of a tooth or teeth. This shell is bonded to the teeth for a long-lasting smile enhancement. In our Michigan practice, we use porcelain due to the characteristics of the material. When working to bring the smile into its most naturally beautiful state, it makes sense to base treatment on a material that looks and acts most like natural enamel. Porcelain, while resistant to stains and decay, will reflect light and remain slightly translucent. As such, porcelain can be used on just one tooth, or on every tooth visible in the smile.
Using veneers, we can help you cover:
Worn EnamelEnamel is the outermost layer of teeth, a porous substance that is susceptible to various factors. Over time, with aging, environmental factors, lifestyle habits like smoking, or even just foods that we eat and beverages we drink, the enamel will change into a duller, even discolored tone. Sometimes, this dullness does not respond to teeth whitening, but will be effectively hidden by natural-looking porcelain veneers.
Wear and TearAs our teeth age, structure may slowly weaken, increasing the risk of cracks or chips. Often, teeth change shape as they become worn with age, or due to the habit of biting on hard objects. A porcelain veneers can cover such concern, creating a cohesive smile line.
GapsGaps may form due to the shifting of teeth, or may develop at a young age, when teeth are still developing. Porcelain veneers cover gaps effectively and comfortably, making each tooth proportionate and beautiful.
Cosmetic treatment with porcelain veneers does a lot for the smile, and gives you an incredible boost in confidence. Discover your best smile. Contact us for your consultation.
