If you are uncomfortable or embarrassed by the way your smile looks, you may have considered cosmetic dental work. Going through your life with stained, crooked, or chipped teeth is no way to live. Cosmetic dental options are available that can alter the way your teeth look and help you gain much more confidence. One possible solution is porcelain veneers which you can learn more about from your Farmington Hills cosmetic dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are small pieces of porcelain about the size of a fingernail that are placed on top of teeth using a dental grade adhesive. Before applying porcelain veneers, your dentist will consult with you to determine what your goals are regarding the size, color, and shape of your new teeth. The porcelain veneers are fabricated in a dental lab and made to fit and match your natural teeth. Veneers can be used not only to improve the look of damaged or badly stained teeth, but can also protect teeth that have been weakened from trauma or decay.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?
Some dentists might offer porcelain veneer treatments to anyone who asks. Choose a dentist you trust, and make sure that the health of your teeth and gums is being considered when creating a procedural plan. It is not a good idea to place veneers on top of unhealthy teeth. While your smile might look great temporarily, this won’t last long if bacteria is still present and trapped underneath the porcelain. If you suffer from less than ideal oral health, your Farmington Hills cosmetic dentist can implement a plan where your teeth will be healthy enough to support porcelain veneers. Just bear in mind though that teeth that have been seriously weakened from periodontal disease or tooth decay may never be able to fully support porcelain veneers.
