Dental VeneersWith a few exceptions, most people are not born with the smile they want. Even with good oral hygiene habits and regular visits to the dentist for preventive care, lifestyle factors like diet and the normal wear and tear of the aging process can lead to stains and discolorations and damage to the enamel. Porcelain veneers are a great option to correct common types of cosmetic damage and to change the size, shape, or color of your teeth for aesthetic purposes. Dr. David Campbell, a dentist in White Lake, MI, offers general and cosmetic dentistry services for children and adults.

A New and Improved Smile with Porcelain Veneers in White Lake, MI

Dental veneers are made from a translucent, razor thin layer of porcelain that is bonded directly onto the tooth. They are a minimally invasive option (a thin layer of tooth enamel may need to be removed in some cases to make room for the veneer) for cosmetic reshaping and common damage like moderate chips and cracks, stains and discolorations, spacing and gaps, and uneven teeth.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a great option for correcting mild to moderate cosmetic imperfections. They can transform your smile and can be completed in as little as two dental appointments. Whether you have specific damage like chips and cracks or would just like to make cosmetic improvements for aesthetics, veneers are one of the most versatile dental restorations available.

With consistent oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings (the American Dental Association recommends every six months), porcelain veneers can typically last for five to ten years, but often much longer.

How veneers can enhance your look

Have you been living with a smile that is less-than-perfect, and teeth that are unsightly, chipped or stained? Do you wish you could veneerschange the shape of your teeth and your smile? Well, now you can! Dental veneers are the answer you’ve been waiting for. Dental veneers are the newest, state-of-the-art way to give you a beautiful, new smile. Dr. David Campbell in White Lake, Michigan, wants to help you investigate dental veneers and what they can do for you.

Dental Veneers are the perfect solution to rejuvenate your smile and correct your teeth if they are:

  • Uneven, with jagged edges from age-related wear
  • Discolored from medications like tetracycline
  • Darkly stained from drinking coffee or smoking
  • Broken or damaged from traumatic injury
  • Poorly spaced with gaps between your teeth

Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain, created by skilled dental artisans in a dental laboratory. Dr. Campbell will prepare your teeth by removing a minimal amount of tooth structure, just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. When your new porcelain veneers come back from the laboratory, Dr. Campbell will permanently cement them to your teeth. The entire process takes between two and three visits, including the consultation appointment.

Porcelain veneers are an investment, and with proper care, they should last for years. A sonic or electric toothbrush can be used to keep your veneers looking good, and don’t forget to floss daily. It’s important not to use your teeth as tools for opening packages and tearing off tags. If you grind your teeth at night, Dr. Campbell can fit you with a custom nightguard to protect your new veneers and your teeth.

Dr. Campbell can help you on the way to a new, beautifully shaped smile you will be proud to show off. You deserve to look great and feel good about yourself, and it all starts with your smile. It’s time to visit Dr. David Campbell in White Lake, Michigan and see what dental veneers can do for you. Call today and get started on your fantastic smile with dental veneers!

Dental veneers improve the appearance of your teeth and are a simple solution to hide gaps and discolored and crooked teeth. Because veneers are wafer thin, they can detach from the front of your teeth in certain circumstances. West Lake Dentist David J. Campbell DDS explains what you should do if you lose a veneer.Veneers

Save the veneer

Put the veneer in a safe place, if you still have it. Wrap it loosely in cotton or tissue, and put it in a hard plastic container. If it's in one piece, your dentist may be able to reattach it. Whether the veneer can be reattached will depend upon the reason it detached. If your dentist doesn't think he can successfully rebond the veneer, you will need a replacement.

Call your dentist

Although losing a veneer isn't a dental emergency, tell your dentist as soon as possible. He may want to look at your tooth before making a decision about the next steps. During your appointment, he can also remove any veneer fragments that remain on the tooth. If you need a new veneer, the sooner you inform your dentist, the sooner you'll have a replacement. It usually takes one to two weeks for the dental laboratory to make a new veneer.

Possible issues

You won't have any difficulty chewing or eating after you lose a veneer, although your tooth may be sensitive to hot or cold foods and drinks. Because a small amount of enamel was removed to prepare the tooth for the enamel, the front of your tooth may feel rough. Buy dental wax and place it over the surface of the tooth if the rough surface irritates your mouth or you're bothered by sensitivity,

Avoiding future problems

Veneers can break or fall off for a variety of reasons, such as biting a hard object, biting your fingernails or clenching your teeth. Obviously, if your veneer fell off after you tried to open a package with your teeth, you'll probably decide that it's a better idea to use a pair of scissors next time. If clenching or grinding is a problem, your dentist may suggest that you wear a nightguard to protect your veneers.
