Veneers

Gapped, chipped, or discolored teeth can have a negative impact on your self-esteem and detract from your overall appearance.

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the front surface of one or more teeth, bringing balance and symmetry to your smile.

Drs. Cynthia Bailey and Tess Marie Finley place dental veneers at the Bailey Dental Group in Richmond, MI...

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers made from lithium disilicate, pressed ceramic, or stacked ceramic offer both strength and beauty. These materials mimic natural tooth translucency for realistic results.

The Porcelain Veneers Treatment Process

Initial Consultation

To determine if you qualify for porcelain veneers, your Richmond, MI, dentists will perform a complete oral examination. During this appointment, we will discuss your cosmetic goals to determine if veneers are right for you.

Preparation

Before your new veneers can be placed, the affected tooth or teeth must be prepared. During this step, your dentist removes a thin layer of your natural dental enamel, which will help your restorations look natural among surrounding teeth.

Dental Impressions

Next, impressions are taken to capture your unique tooth anatomy and oral dentition. This step may be completed with traditional alginate or a handheld digital wand. The impressions are then sent to a dental lab, where your veneers are created.

Temporary Veneers

In many cases, temporary veneers are placed to protect your teeth and enhance your smile while the dental lab creates your final restorations. This step may not be necessary, depending on how much of your tooth enamel was removed.

Fabrication

Generally, it takes the lab at least one to two weeks to create your veneers. A ceramist creates a model of your teeth using the impressions taken by your dentist. Next, porcelain is layered to create natural-looking veneers.

Placement

Once the dental lab has completed your veneers, we will schedule you for another appointment at our Richmond, MI, practice. During this appointment, your temporary restorations are removed and your new porcelain veneers are bonded permanently into place.

Alternative and Complementary Treatments

Dental veneer treatment is often performed as part of a smile makeover, which is a comprehensive aesthetic approach that combines two or more cosmetic procedures. Veneers are commonly combined with:

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile by several shades in a single office visit. If you are considering bleaching your teeth in addition to porcelain veneers, be sure to undergo whitening before your restorations are placed for best results.

Gum Lift

Excess gum tissue can make a tooth appear too small or "boxy." A gum lift – also referred to as cosmetic crown lengthening – raises the gum line, revealing more of the tooth crown underneath. You can combine a gum lift with veneers for truly remarkable outcomes.

Orthodontics

While veneers can address minor misalignment, orthodontic treatment is necessary to correct more complex malocclusion. Our dentists offer traditional braces and Invisalign® at our Richmond, MI practice. Orthodontics must be completed prior to dental veneers.

Caring for Your Veneers

Veneers made from porcelain can last upwards of 15 years with proper care. Here are a few dental care tips to keep your restorations in excellent condition:

Brush and Floss Daily

While a porcelain veneer cannot decay, the underlying tooth can. To remove bacteria and reduce the risk of cavities, practice good dental care at home every day. Be sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush, as hard bristles can damage restorations.

Choose the Right Toothpaste

To fight cavity-causing bacteria and strengthen your enamel, use a fluoride toothpaste. When shopping for products, choose nonabrasive tooth gels. Certain toothpaste formulas contain harsh ingredients which can scratch your veneers.

Avoid Tobacco Products

Smoking is bad for your oral and overall health. Tobacco products may not stain porcelain, but they cause significant discoloration to the bonding material underneath. Keep your new smile bright and healthy by kicking the habit for good.

Protect against Bruxism

If you are one of the millions of Americans who clench and grind their teeth, talk to your Richmond, MI, dentists about a custom oral appliance. These devices protect your veneers - and your natural teeth - from damage.

Stop Bad Habits

You should never chew on ice, bite your nails, or use your teeth to open packages. Bad habits like these can cause irreparable damage to your teeth and dental restorations. If your veneers fracture, you will need to have them replaced.

Attend Routine Exams and Cleanings

Regular exams and cleanings allow our dentists to monitor your veneers and ensure they are functioning properly. Professional cleanings remove plaque and reduce the risk of decay and gum disease. Routine dental care is essential.

Flexible Financing and Payment Options

At our Richmond, MI, practice, we believe that all individuals should have access to high-quality dentistry. That is why we offer a number of convenient financing options. In addition to accepting most major dental insurance, we also offer financing through CareCredit®. We accept all major credit cards as well.

No matter what your dental needs, our team is here to help you receive the care you deserve. Our financial experts are always available to discuss payment options with you.
