With another year behind you, what is your new year’s resolution? If you have always wanted a smile that sparkles and impresses those around you, you are in luck!  There is no reason why you should have to put up with or deal with gaps in your teeth or teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked.  Today, placing a veneer on top of your teeth can correct natural blemished or injuries to help you achieve a beautiful smile again.  Dental veneers in White Lake from our office help to create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth.  
The translucent ceramic quality of today’s veneers provides a more natural look than what has been available in the past. Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues.
The Veneers Procedure
Getting dental veneers requires multiple visits to make and apply the veneers.  One tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process.  During the tooth preparation visit the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer.  Usually, about a half a millimeter of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anesthetic. At this visit, a mold is taken of your teeth and sent to the laboratory for fabrication of your veneers.
The final visit is when the veneers are bonded to your tooth surface with water or glycerin to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or color needed.  While the veneers are resting on your teeth, they can be adjusted with various shades of bonding materials to match the color of your teeth.  To apply, the tooth is cleansed with specific chemicals to achieve a bond.  Once the special cement is placed between the veneer and tooth, a visible light beam, or laser, causes a catalyst to be released, hardening the cement. 
If you have undesirable defects in your smile, contact Dr. David Campbell, our White Lake, MI dentist, for further consultation on if veneers are an appropriate solution for your smile restoration.
