Porcelain Veneers

If your teeth are stained, chipped, or shaped in a way that is not pleasing to you, then you may want to consider porcelain laminate veneers from the Dental Care Team located in Grand Blanc, MI.

Veneers are thin coverings that are custom made from porcelain for concealing the surfaces of your teeth. With porcelain veneers, we can make your teeth even, make stained teeth look white, and make broken teeth appear whole again. Veneers are extremely strong and long lasting. You generally will not need to replace them for 5-10 years.

Veneers are applied in a 2-visit procedure. During your first visit, your teeth will be prepared by removing a very thin layer of enamel. A mold of your teeth will be taken so that the veneers can be custom made for your mouth. You may have to alter your diet until your next visit since your teeth may be sensitive to hot and cold.

Your 2nd visit will last longer. The veneers are applied to your teeth with a light sensitive adhesive that is the color of your natural teeth. A bonding light cures and hardens the adhesive. About 1 week after you have the veneers, you will need to have an evaluation visit where the final polishing will occur.
