What Are Dental Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth by permanently bonding to the tooth, also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. This procedure is often done by those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.

It’s also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in a situation where the tooth position is compromised and there are minor bite-related problems. Because of these benefits, veneers have become a popular options for Grand Rapids patients looking for restorative work.

While they’re not ideal for every patient, dental veneers are an excellent option for:

  • Teeth with permanent or unbleachable stains
  • Discolored fillings
  • Teeth that are broken or chipped
  • Crooked teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them

The Procedure Of Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Klein will work with you to customize and plan your smile design, giving you the individual attention you deserve instead of a generic solution. And because teeth that look good are also functioning properly, Dr. Klein will make changes to improve the function and structure of your chewing system to also improve their appearance.

Once your smile has been designed, you will return for the actual procedure to begin. The dentist will remove about 1/2 millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, which is nearly equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added to the tooth surface. Next, a model or impression of your tooth is made and sent out to a dental laboratory, which in turn constructs your veneer in about two to four weeks.

Before the dental veneer is permanently cemented to your tooth, your dentist will temporarily place it on your tooth to examine its fit and color, making an adjustments necessary. Next, your tooth will be cleaned, polished, and etched to prepare your tooth to receive the veneer. The final step involves applying a special cement to the veneer, and then the veneer is placed on your tooth.

Dr. Klein also focuses on management of the gum tissue, and may ask you to return a couple of weeks after your appointment to ensure the gum tissue is responding properly. When all is said and done – and when properly taken care of – you’ll have your perfect smile.

Consider These Factors

Advantages Of Dental Veneers

Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Because they are made of high-tech materials, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke. In fact, veneers can make even whitening-resistant teeth the brightest whites.

With veneers, your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer. They can also quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps. And according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, veneers are a great choice for teeth with enamel abrasion or enamel erosion, which often results from overzealous tooth brushing or highly acidic foods and drinks.

Disadvantages of Veneers

This does come at a cost — it’s an expensive procedure. Some people also experience an increase in tooth sensitivity after getting veneers, due to the removal of that thin layer of enamel.

Veneers are also a lifelong commitment because Dr. Klein needs to change the structure of your natural teeth to properly place them. Adjustments and even new veneers can be made, but you can never return to the original condition of the tooth.

Veneers vs. Crowns

Dental veneers and dental crowns are both highly durable and long-lasting. The difference between the two procedures is that a dental crown fits over your natural tooth, covering all sides of the tooth.

Dental veneers a placed over the front and sides of the tooth covering any visible imperfections. As opposed to crowns, your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.
