Dental veneers have come a long way in recent years, making it possible to completely make over your smile in just a few visits to Kari Family Dentistry. Veneers are minimally invasive, conservative procedure as very thin layer of enamel is removed and replaced with a shell of porcelain.
You may benefit from veneers if you have:
- Excessive intrinsic stains (like from Tetracycline) on the front teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Spacing in between the front teeth
- Unevenly sized or shaped teeth
- Teeth that are chipped or mildly fractured
If you and Dr. Kari decide that veneers are the right option for your smile, the procedure is fairly straightforward. It usually takes two visits to our New Hudson, MI dental office. The first visit is to prepare your teeth, take an impression, and place temporary veneers on your teeth. The second visit is to permanently adhere your final, porcelain veneers.
Veneers are individually sculpted for your smile, so it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Plus, veneers can resist staining from coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco, though we recommended that you avoid excessive exposure to these substances to maintain the beauty of your veneers for the long term.
