Your teeth may not be as beautiful as they used to be. You’d like them to be white and sparkling, but instead, they are dull, stained and badly shaped. You find yourself not smiling as much as you used to. It may be time to consider dental veneers, the most versatile
treatment available to correct many common dental problems. It’s time to talk with Dr. John Dixon, your cosmetic and family dentist in Shelby Township, Michigan. Dr. Dixon is highly experienced in dental veneers.
Veneers are a smart versatile solution to correct most cosmetic dental problems. They are also a conservative, safe choice because very little or no tooth structure is removed, unlike crowns and fillings. Dental veneers also are strong and resistant to staining.
A veneer is a very thin shell, usually made of porcelain, and cemented to the front surface of your tooth. A porcelain veneer is created in a dental lab and cemented at a later appointment. Typically, porcelain veneers take two to three appointments. Porcelain veneers can correct major cosmetic issues such as:
Unevenly shaped teeth from aging or excessive wear
- Unevenly spaced teeth due to genetics
- Teeth damaged from traumatic injury
- Worn, cracked or stained teeth
- Very heavily stained teeth from medications like tetracycline
Veneers also can be made of a tooth-colored resin material called composite. Composite veneers can be completed in one office visit and can correct smaller cosmetic problems such as tiny chips or cracks.
Dr. Dixon works with both porcelain and resin veneers. He will color-match your chosen material to give your teeth a custom look that is completely natural.
