About Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic enhancement with porcelain veneers can restore a beautiful smile by covering certain aesthetic concerns, such as cracks, stains, chips, small gaps, and more concerns. Thin, customized shells that fit over the front enamel of the patient’s teeth, dental veneers create a natural, good-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are sturdy, however still thin enough to be translucent, which helps the porcelain veneers to blend in with the natural teeth. Having dental veneers created by our dentists at DentalWorks - Royal Oak in Royal Oak, MI is a efficient, easy way to cover several physical flaws and make a restored, radiant smile.
What to Expect
To begin the procedure of crafting the personalized dental veneers our dentists must make space for the dental veneer by removing a thin layer of enamel from every tooth that is going to be covered to the dental veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared, our dentists will take a digital image of the teeth, which will be used to make the custom dental veneers in a dental laboratory. A temporary veneer can be used to protect the teeth until the final dental veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Royal Oak in Royal Oak, MI. The custom dental veneers will be secured to the front of the teeth using a dental bonding agent. Our dentists will fine-tune the dental veneers if needed to give the patient a comfortable fit.
A follow-up appointment is usually booked for about 5 - 7 days after the dental veneers are placed to ensure the attachment is secure and the fit is still comfortable. Dental veneers are more resistant to staining than the natural teeth, but to keep the dental veneers in their pristine condition, our dentists advise avoiding staining foods and drinks, like coffee, soda, tea, and red wine. Patients should start or continue to follow a good home dental care routine, including daily tooth brushing using a non-abrasive toothpaste, regular flossing, and visiting our dentists for dental cleanings and oral exams at DentalWorks - Royal Oak. With good care, dental veneers may last up to 20 years.
Dental veneers are categorized a cosmetic service, so it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, DentalWorks - Royal Oak in Royal Oak, MI takes many payment options, not to mention our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Royal Oak can help patients with financing plans to make dental veneers more affordable.
