Porcelain Dental Veneers Can Give You a While Smile That’s Easy to Maintain

Posted .

Chips and visible fillings on the teeth in your smile can leave you feeling uncomfortable with your appearance. This is especially true if you’ve struggled with chronic staining issues in the past. One of the most effective ways to address these issues and achieve an easy-to-maintain white smile is to have Dr. Jeremy Dull install dental veneers.

Dental veneers in Monroe, Michigan, are custom shaped and shaded porcelain shells that are designed to fit over the faces of each tooth in your smile. They will be custom crafted in a dental lab to match the natural shape of the teeth and improve the shape and contour. At the same time, the porcelain material will only be subject to minor surface stains from dark beverages and foods. This will have the net effect of helping you maintain your new, bright, white smile.

Your dentist will start by examining your teeth. It’s important to make sure you have sufficient healthy enamel to secure a veneer. If you have a tooth that has been compromised by tooth decay or old fillings or if it simply lacks sufficient enamel, he might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown.

Dr. Jeremy Dull will then cast a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.

When your porcelain veneers are ready, Dr. Jeremy Dull call you back in for a second appointment to install them. This involves removing a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing the porcelain shell into place.
