Do you find yourself covering your smile when it’s time for group photos?
Has your smile ever made you feel self-conscious? If so, you’ll want to ask one of our cosmetic dentists about porcelain veneers. The Grand Rapids dentists at GR Family Dental will be able to discuss the pros and cons of porcelain veneers so you can make an informed decision for your smile.
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Porcelain veneers are placed on the fronts of teeth that show when you smile or talk. Dental veneers are essentially thin tooth-colored shells made of porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth. Not only do dental veneers look like natural tooth enamel, but they are also highly stain resistant. Porcelain veneers can hide front teeth that are chipped, discolored, irregularly shaped, or crooked.
Porcelain Veneer Procedure
The porcelain veneer procedure is broken up into two visits. To make room for your porcelain veneers, our dentist will first need to remove enough tooth enamel from the fronts of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers look just like natural teeth!
This will prevent your new dental veneers from looking large and bulky. Our dentist will then take dental impressions, which will be sent to the lab where your veneers will be made. When you come back for the second part of the veneers process, our dentist will bond the veneers to the fronts of your teeth.
The Grand Rapids veneers dentists at GR Family Dental are dedicated to helping patients maintain good oral health and feel confident with their smiles through quality dental treatments.
