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 surfaces of one or more teeth, bringing balance and symmetry to your smile.

How Do Porcelain Veneers Affect My Natural Teeth?
Because veneers require the removal of a thin layer of enamel from your teeth, the process is irreversible. Your tooth will always require a veneer or other restoration once the enamel has been altered. However, since the veneer gives your tooth a layer of protection, removing this layer is not harmful to your natural tooth. You'll be able to enjoy your veneers for around a decade before they will need to be replaced.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?
Poor Oral Health
Because they serve as a base for your porcelain veneers, your natural teeth need to be healthy and free of decay and your gums must be free of periodontal disease before veneers can be placed. If needed, we can help improve your oral health to restore your candidacy for veneer placement.
Bad Oral Habits
Veneers may not be for you if you are unable to break the habit of grinding your teeth, biting your nails, chewing on hard objects like pen caps, or using your teeth to open packaging. Like many cosmetic dentistry treatments, a veneer can be worn down, dislodged, or even chipped due to bad oral habits.
Poor Oral Care
While veneers do not need special maintenance, in order to be a good candidate you must be willing to keep up your oral hygiene. This means brushing twice daily, flossing once daily, and visiting your dentist every six months. The healthier your natural teeth and gums are, the longer your veneers will last.
The Porcelain Veneers Treatment Process
Our veneers mimic natural tooth translucency for realistic results.
Meets Comprehensive Treatment
Drs. Bailey and Finley use only the latest, most advanced technology in dentistry. We believe your smile should be both healthy and beautiful, so you can count on us to make certain that your teeth are free of any oral health issues before providing any cosmetic treatments. Our sophisticated laser cavity systems help detect decay that is not yet visible to the naked eye. This is just one way we help patients experience the best possible benefits of treatments like veneers.
In addition to porcelain veneers, we also offer advanced restorative options. Patients who are missing teeth can explore the denture and dental implant options we provide. Whether you need a cosmetic upgrade, a solution to an oral health issue, or both, you can depend on Bailey Dental Group to provide the treatment you need.

Inspiring Patient Confidence and Trust For Decades
Dr. Bailey was my childhood dentist but I moved away from the area years ago and have seen several dentists since... I moved back to area a couple years ago and thought maybe I’ll try out my childhood dentist - I’m so glad I did! What an experience! The “comfort menu” is an added touch that I was blown away by and my hygienist Kimmie was amazing! She was absolutely wonderful, fun, and so kind I’ll never see another hygienist again! Highly recommend this practice!View on Google

Caring for Your Veneers
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. You should also attend regular cleanings.
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. They can also prevent the need for dentures or dental implants in the future.
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.

And Payment Options
At our Richmond, MI, practice, we believe that all individuals should have access to high-quality dentistry. In addition to accepting most major dental insurance, we also offer financing through CareCredit®. We accept all major credit cards as well.
