Ready to find out if you are the perfect candidate for dental veneers?

There are many smile issues that may not affect how your teeth function but can certainly affect how they appear. If certain flaws keep you from enjoying your smile then it’s time you talked to our Troy cosmetic dentists Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey about Veneerswhether porcelain veneers could be the answer to your cosmetic problems.

You want to hide dental flaws.

Are you looking for a way to hide these imperfections?

  • Chips
  • Discolorations
  • Malformed teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Spaces between teeth

If so, then getting dental veneers can help. While other treatment options like dental bonding and teeth whitening can be enough to buff out small cracks and remove stains from teeth, there are some situations in which these treatments just aren’t enough. In these cases, veneers can mask all these aesthetic issues.

You want a straighter smile.

Not everyone has seriously crooked smiles, but tiny issues can be enough to affect how you feel about your appearance. But if having braces for years just seems like a lot of sacrifice for such a small issue then it’s time to talk to our Troy cosmetic dentist about whether porcelain veneers can be placed over gaps between your teeth to get a straighter smile.

You don’t grind your teeth.

Those with bad habits like teeth grinding, jaw clenching or using their teeth to open packaging or bottle caps might not be the best candidates for porcelain veneers. While veneers are certainly strong and can provide additional durability to teeth, veneers can only withstand so much. Habits like teeth grinding can put unnecessary pressure on your veneers, which can cause them to fracture or come off.

You’re dedicated to caring for your new smile.

Cosmetic dentistry can be an amazing way to get the smile you want, but it’s important to note that because some enamel must be shaved down to accommodate your veneers this process is considered irreversible once tooth preparation has occurred. This means that your veneers are for life, so you need to be ready to care for your new smile so that it lasts.

Dental veneers have restored countless smiles and you could be next! To truly find out if you are right for these restorations it’s time to call Rochester Dental in Troy, MI. We would be happy to get you in for a consultation as soon as possible!
