Do you have crooked teeth? Maybe you want to repair a chipped tooth or multiple teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic dentistry option that improves and balances the smile.
Porcelain veneers can be used to:
- Cover discolored or stained teeth
- Repair chipped and broken teeth
- Close spaces between teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked teeth
At Mid Michigan Smiles in Mount Pleasant, MI, Dr. Raymond Ribitch offers dental veneers to patients who want to revitalize their smiles. Dr. Ribitch works with patients as individuals to assess tooth damage, review treatment options, and go over a comprehensive treatment plan. It is Dr. Ribitch’s goal to ensure that patients understand and feel comfortable with all of their dental treatments.
The Porcelain Veneers Treatment Process
Dr. Raymond Ribitch will give you a comprehensive assessment to ensure that porcelain veneers are the right treatment option for you. To begin treatment, Dr. Ribitch will prepare the tooth receiving the veneer by removing a small amount of the tooth structure. Preparing the tooth ensures that the veneer fits comfortably onto the tooth.
He will then take a dental impression of the prepared tooth to create a custom veneer. Porcelain veneers are made to a particular shape, size, and color that will blend in with other teeth for a natural look. When the final restoration is complete, Dr. Ribitch will bond the thin, shell-like porcelain veneer to the tooth.
Porcelain veneers resist staining, although it is still good to stay away from food and beverages that typically stain teeth, like sodas, teas, coffee, and red wine. You should brush and floss normally with veneers to maintain your new, brilliant smile.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Learn the answers to questions about dental veneers that many patients may have:
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers are durable and designed to last for at least 20 yeats. With proper care, maintenance, and regular dental visits, your veneers can last a lifetime.
Can you get teeth whitening with porcelain veneers?
Veneers are more stain resistant than natural teeth and can maintain their beautiful appearance with good oral hygiene. The porcelain material used to craft your veneers can be any shade you would like, and can brighten your natural smile by multiple shades.
Can you get a cavity with porcelain veneers?
Dental veneers themselves are not susceptible to decay, but the tooth underneath the restoration is always susceptible to disease and decay. It is important that you maintain your oral hygiene and schedule regular visits to our Mount Pleasant, MI office to keep an eye out for possible infection.
