Porcelain VeneersPorcelain veneers are one of the most versatile and minimally invasive procedures available to completely make over a damaged, stained, or unattractive smile. A veneer can change the size, shape, and color of a tooth, giving you a brand new smile in as little as a single dental appointment. The dentists at Fowlerville Family Dentistry offer cosmetic, restorative, and emergency dental services for patients in Fowlerville, MI.

Even healthy teeth can use a little upgrade from time to time. From chips and cracks to spaces and uneven teeth, veneers can dramatically improve and transform your smile without major dental work. A veneer is made of a razor thin layer of translucent, enamel (tooth) colored porcelain bonded directly onto the surface of the front facing teeth to change the size, shape, and color.

Mild to moderate cosmetic problems like cracks, chips, stains, and discolorations, and gaps can be repaired with porcelain veneers (gaps and spaces caused by bite or alignment issues may require orthodontic treatment). Dentists may also recommend a veneer to seal and strengthen a tooth after it has been treated with root canal therapy.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are generally a good option for repairing the mild to moderate cosmetic imperfections that can ruin an otherwise healthy and attractive smile. However they are also available for aesthetic improvements, so if you just wish your teeth were a little whiter, straighter, more even, or a different shape, veneers may be able to help. In some situations, stains and discolorations are caused at the dentin layer (below the enamel), which do not respond to surface professional teeth whitening treatments. In this case, veneers would be the next best option to whiten your teeth.
