Porcelain Veneers

Do your front teeth have small chips, cracks, gaps, or other minor imperfections? If so, our cosmetic dentist in Grand Rapids, Michigan, may recommend porcelain veneers. With veneers, you can easily correct your teeth’s imperfections to help you have a more confident, beautiful smile.

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain), and they are designed to cover the front side of your teeth.

Veneers are natural in appearance, and they are a perfect option for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.

Here’s what else you need to know about porcelain veneers.

What Happens During the Veneer Procedure?

First, Dr. Yun will need to prepare the teeth that will be receiving the dental veneers. This often means removing a thin layer of enamel from the fronts of your teeth. Next, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab that will create your veneers.

While you wait for the lab to make your veneers, Dr. Yun will place temporary veneers over your teeth. When you return for your second appointment with us, your permanent veneers will be ready.

Dr. Yun will test the fit of your new veneers to ensure they blend in with the rest of your teeth. He may also need to make small adjustments to the permanent veneers before bonding them to your teeth to achieve the desired aesthetic result. One of the many benefits of porcelain veneers is that they look and feel natural.

If you have any questions about the veneer procedure, please don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist.

How Do I Care for Porcelain Veneers?

While veneers are stain-resistant, Dr. Yun may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile.

After getting your veneers, continue to practice good oral hygiene at home. This means brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day to remove plaque.

Also, continue seeing Dr. Yun for preventive care so we can detect and treat any oral health issues in their early stages.
