How dental veneers from your Okemos, MI dentist can improve your smile

With all the hype and popularity, chances are pretty good that you’ve heard of dental veneers. Veneers can be a fantastic option for so veneersmany people looking to revamp and transform their smiles. Head over to the office of our Okemos, MI dentist Dr. Eric Eby to find out more about dental veneers and whether they are right for you.

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are thin shells that are made from a durable, tooth-colored material and designed to adhere to the front of your teeth to hide common dental flaws like discolorations, misalignments, worn and uneven teeth, as well as chips and cracks. Veneers can be a great way to brighten discolored or stained teeth that can’t be treated with teeth whitening. It can also straighten smiles, improve the shape of your teeth and even lengthen teeth.

What types of dental veneers do I have to choose from?

Veneers are traditionally made from porcelain since they reflect light in much the same way that natural tooth enamel does and they are stain resistant, though sometimes veneers can also be made from composite resin (the same material used to fill a cavity).

If you choose to get traditional dental veneers, then some tooth preparation is required. This means that we will need to remove some tooth enamel to make room for the veneers. While this is completely painless, once enamel has been removed the process is not reversible.
