If you reside in the Bloomfield Hills, Farmington Hills and the Southfield area and are seeking information about porcelain veneers, let me tell you a little about what they are good for and how they work.
You will want to consider porcelain veneers if you have one or more of the following:
· Tetracycline stains (permanent gray or yellow discolorations from taking antibiotics when your teeth were forming)
· Stained or yellowed teeth from coffee, tea, or just the simple passage of time
· Chipped, worn or uneven teeth
· Spaces or gaps between your teeth
Veneers are great if you want straighter teeth or a brighter smile. I have seen people’s lives literally changed overnight by transforming their smiles with porcelain veneers!
A veneer is an extremely thin wafer of porcelain that is custom made and bonded to each tooth, usually with some slight shaping of your teeth done first (sometimes a little reduction has to be done on the front of your teeth so the veneer will not make your teeth look bulky or “fat”). You also may be a candidate for Lumineers, a new type of ultra thin veneer where almost no reduction is done.
Our porcelain veneers are individually hand made and custom shaded for your unique face and smile. They have many advantages including the fact that being a glass and not plastic they will not stain, discolor or decay. They are extremely durable and last a very long time.
The process is considered minimally-invasive cosmetic dentistry and is much more conservative than caps or crowns. They usually take only a few hours and two visits to complete. Patients are typically blown away by the amazing results we get. Check out the before/after pages on our website, drmarklangberg.wpenginepowered.com for some samples of our high quality work!
