Porcelain Veneers

It is possible to completely transform your smile by concealing cosmetic imperfections on teeth with dental veneers. Veneers can be used to mask a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as stains and discolorations or gaps between teeth. The color, size, and shape of veneers can all be customized for the most natural look possible. Once they are placed on the teeth, veneers look and function just like regular teeth. At Lakeshore Dentistry and Implant Center, Dr. Ryan Lebster and Dr. Jose Vivas are your Holland, MI dentists for veneers.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin covers affixed to the front of teeth with cosmetic flaws to give the teeth a flawless appearance. Veneers can be used to cover up small gaps between teeth, stains or discolorations, and cracks or chips. Veneers can also improve the appearance of teeth that are shaped oddly. To apply veneers, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of problem teeth. This allows the veneers to sit flush with the surrounding teeth rather than stick out slightly. The veneers are then cemented in place so it will not come loose or fall off.

Veneers can be made from a few different materials, but porcelain is a popular choice as it closely resembles tooth enamel for a completely natural look. Additionally, the color, size, and shape of veneers are customized for the most natural look possible. Once in place, veneers look just like natural teeth. They can be used to close small gaps between teeth, as well as cover stains, discolorations, chips, or cracks. They can also improve the shape of teeth that are misshaped.
