Porcelain Veneers

Elevate Your Smile At Parkside Dental

Our smiles have a profound effect on how we live our lives. If we feel uncomfortable about the way our teeth look, it can impact our self-confidence. Thankfully, porcelain veneers are perfectly designed to cover cosmetic imperfections including cracked, stained, or uneven teeth. They painlessly enhance your smile’s appearance, offering a comfortable, easy solution.

Say “goodbye” to self-consciousness and say “hello” to confidence with porcelain veneers provided by our Parkside Dental dentists in Westland, MI.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells placed over the front surface of your teeth. They’re a cosmetic dentistry treatment used to cover minor imperfections such as cracks, chips, and discoloration in teeth. Each porcelain veneer is expertly crafted by our Westland dentists according to the shape and color of your teeth to create a seamless appearance.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for many cosmetic dental issues. In addition, they’re also a wonderful solution to structural problems. At Parkside Dental, many of our patients choose veneers to fix any of the following issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Misaligned, uneven teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too large
  • Severely discolored, yellow, or stained teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or large
  • Unwanted or uneven spacing between teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth

Veneers are also offered as an alternative to dental crowns, giving you a perfect look and full functionality.

Ask our dentists if you’re a candidate for the veneer procedure. To schedule your appointment with one of our Westland dentists, call Parkside Dental Team at (734) 261-6060.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?

The porcelain veneer process usually requires two visits to our Parkside Dental office. The procedure is simple and virtually pain-free thanks to safe, reliable anesthetics. At your first appointment, our team at Parkside Dental will prepare your teeth by buffing and shaping the surface. This creates room for the veneer to rest in line with your natural teeth. A mold of your teeth will be made and a matching shade (color) is then chosen by you and your dentist.

During your second visit, our team will thoroughly clean your teeth to ensure a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light is used to harden and set the bond.

You’ll receive detailed care instructions for maintaining your dental veneers. As with most dental restorations, veneers are not completely permanent and may someday need to be replaced. However, they’re very durable and will give you a beautiful smile that lasts for years to come. By brushing and flossing daily and scheduling regular dental checkups, you can support a long lifespan for your new veneers.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Parkside Dental Team, we take great care to ensure our patients’ comfort at all times. The porcelain veneer process should not be painful, and we’ll apply a local anesthetic to eliminate any discomfort you may experience. You may feel some mild soreness when your anesthetic wears off after your procedure. However, any discomfort should dissipate within a few hours and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

If you feel anxious about treatment, we’ll be happy to recommend effective sedation dentistry options.

With proper maintenance and care, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced. Taking care of your new smile is as easy as brushing and flossing twice a day and attending regular dental check-ups.
