From teeth whitening at the dentist’s to whitening toothpaste, there seems to be no shortage of ways to make your smile bright, white, and clear again. However, one option that’s often overlook is getting dental veneers to help restore your smile when you have deeply stained enamel.
Dental veneers are essentially thin porcelain shells that are custom crafted to fit on the face of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material can be color matched to look like natural tooth enamel, making them look as if they are your natural teeth.
Having dental veneers installed requires two separate appointments. The first step involves your MI Beautiful Smile dentist examining your teeth and take a few X-rays. This helps determine if there is sufficient enamel to anchor dental veneers as well as assess the overall health of each tooth. If one or more teeth lacks sufficient enamel or it has been compromised by past dental work we might recommend having a crown installed on that particular tooth.
After all of your teeth have been assessed for the most applicable treatment option. MI Beautiful Smile will form an impression of your smile. This will be sent to the dental lab where your custom dental veneers are crafted. Once the veneers are ready, each individual dental veneer will be cemented into place.
Veneers are a great option for those who don’t want to deal with regular bleaching that occurs during whitening procedures; however, if you choose to get veneers, you’ll have to make sure you maintain a high level of oral hygiene to prevent them from becoming stained as well.
