Greetings, Plymouth! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of Plymouth Dentistry. We hope this winter weather isn’t keeping you down. We’ve been hard at work reshaping smiles at our comfortable and warm office. With 2016 right around the corner, now is a great time to begin evaluating the things you’d like to change about your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry could be just the thing to make your 2016 enjoyable. What is cosmetic dentistry? Cosmetic dentistry is focused on reshaping your smile and repairing flaws. Cosmetic dentistry can give you a brand-new smile that you’re proud to show off.

If you’re looking for cosmetic dentistry in Michigan, then make a visit to our office. At Plymouth Dentistry in Plymouth, MI, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures. In today’s post, we’re going to look at one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures: veneers. We’ll tell you what you can expect if you need veneers and give you several reasons to consider veneers.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are a noninvasive cosmetic dentistry procedure. Veneers act as a shell or laminate that is bonded to the outer surface of your teeth. Veneers are made out of porcelain or other tooth-colored materials. Veneers look incredibly lifelike, so no one will be able to tell that the veneer is not the surface of your natural tooth.

Placing veneers at Plymouth Dentistry in Plymouth, MI, is a quick procedure. We begin by removing a slight amount of enamel from your teeth to make space for the veneers. Then we bond the veneers in place over your teeth and make small adjustments as needed. Veneers can give you a brand-new smile and last for decades or longer with proper care.

Reasons to Consider Dental Veneers

Many patients come into Plymouth Dentistry because there is something they dislike about their smile. They want to fix the flaw, but they don’t want to spend a fortune on cosmetic dentistry. Many of them are surprised to learn that veneers are a quick and relatively affordable way to reshape their smile.

Reason #1: Veneers Can Cover Stained or Discolored Teeth

As you get older, your teeth can become stained or discolored. Maybe you’ve tried professional teeth whitening, but your teeth just don’t seem to respond to it. Genetic factors and certain medications can stain your teeth to the point where not even professional teeth whitening can fix them. But at Plymouth Dentistry, we can completely cover them with a set of veneers. Your veneers can be as white as you’d like!

Reason #2: Veneers Can Reshape Your Smile

On occasion, a patient will come to us with an oddly shaped tooth. It sticks out of their smile and makes them dislike their smile. Veneers can be used to cover this misshapen tooth or teeth so that they blend in with the rest of their smile. Veneers are far less invasive than other procedures used to reshape teeth.

Reason #3: Veneers Can Repair Cracks and Chips

There are many different ways a tooth can become chipped or cracked. A single veneer can be placed over a chipped or cracked tooth so you can’t even tell it was ever damaged! Veneers also tend to be more durable than other repairs for chipped or cracked teeth, such as dental bonding.

Reason #4: Veneers Can Close Gaps Between Your Teeth

Do you have a small but noticeable gap between your teeth? You’d like to have it fixed but dread the thought of wearing braces? We can actually place dental veneers to close that embarrassing gap! That means you don’t have to spend months or years in braces to get the smile you want.
