Are porcelain veneers a good option for me?

If you can imagine yourself with sparkling teeth that stand out, your dream smile could be a reality. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic treatment for fixing dental flaws such as chips, stains, gaps between teeth, and size or shape irregularities. Veneers are popular because they look natural and allow your smile to shine.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself when considering a dentist in Royal Oak for a porcelain veneer:

Do you have imperfections in one or more teeth that bother you?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells placed over the tooth and can give a uniform, aesthetically pleasing look of uniformity to your teeth.

Do you have teeth that are worn down or too short?

If you worry that your teeth are getting smaller over time, veneers will protect them for the long term.

Do you grind or clench your teeth?

Porcelain veneers will not damage your teeth but do require special care. While veneers are durable and stain-resistant, they can be weakened by repetitive wear and may not be a good choice for those with bruxism.

Do you bite your fingernails, chew pencils, or tend to use your teeth to open things?

Again, porcelain veneers are not meant to be used on non-food objects and can be damaged if so.

These are just a few things to consider when calling a dentist in Royal Oak about porcelain veneer treatment.
