About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can repair a lovely smile by masking certain cosmetic flaws, such as chips, cracks, stains, minor gaps, and other issues. Slim, personalized covers that sit over the visible surface of the patient’s teeth, veneers establish a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Porcelain veneers are long-lasting, but still slim enough to be discreet, which helps the veneers to blend with the normal appearance of the teeth. Getting veneers made by our dentists at DentalWorks - Lakeside in Sterling Heights, MI is a quick, simple solution to mask various aesthetic blemishes and deliver a rejuvenated, glowing smile.
What to Expect
To initiate the process of making the custom veneers our dentists needs to create room for the veneer by taking off a wafer-thin layer of dental enamel from each tooth that will be concealed to the veneer. After the teeth have been prepped, our dentists can make a digital impression of the teeth that will be used to create the personalized veneers in a dental laboratory. A transitional veneer may be used to conceal the teeth until the custom veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Lakeside in Sterling Heights, MI. The personalized veneers will be attached to the front surface of the teeth with a professional bonding agent. Our dentists can tweak the veneers as needed to provide the patient a comfortable and snug fit.
Another appointment is usually scheduled for around seven days after the veneers are bonded to make sure the glue is strong and the feel is still comfortable. Porcelain veneers are more resilient against staining than the natural enamel, but to maintain the veneers in their ideal condition, our dentists recommend giving up staining drinks and foods, including tea, coffee, soda, and red wine. Patients are encouraged to start or continue to stick with a good home oral care routine, including brushing the teeth with a non-abrasive toothpaste, frequent flossing, and scheduling appointments with our dentists for cleanings and exams at DentalWorks - Lakeside. With proper care, veneers can be kept on for up to twenty years.
Porcelain veneers are classified a cosmetic treatment, which means it is generally not paid dental insurance. Although, DentalWorks - Lakeside in Sterling Heights, MI accepts several payment choices, plus our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Lakeside can assist patients with financing options to make veneers reasonably priced.
