Would your teeth be more attractive without chips, discolorations or other flaws? Adding veneers to problem teeth can make imperfections disappear. The restorations offered by your Lansing, MI, dentist, Dr. Scott Stone, provide a simple way to enhance your smile.

Veneers conceal flaws

Veneers hide imperfections in the fronts of your teeth. The tooth-shaped shells are made from an impression of your mouth and are attached to your teeth with dental cement. Veneers don't require extensive preparation or major changes to your tooth structure. In fact, your Lansing, MI, dentist will only need to remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel to ensure that your veneers fit comfortably.

Veneers offer smile-changing benefits

Uniform teeth are an important component of a perfect smile, yet many of us have a few teeth that look a little out of place. Veneers change the appearance of oddly shaped, crooked, twisted or too short teeth, making the teeth blend in with the rest of your smile.

It's hard to overlook a discolored tooth no matter how hard you try. In fact, the tooth may be the first thing you notice when you look in the mirror. Fortunately, discolorations disappear from view once a veneer is added.

Veneers can be made to match the current shade of your teeth or can be used to whiten your entire smile. If you're looking for a long-lasting whitening option, there's no better choice than veneers. The restorations are stain-resistant and won't become dull or yellow if you consume coffee, tea, wine, cola, berries or other darkly pigmented foods and beverages.

Orthodontic treatment isn't always needed to close the spaces between your teeth. Veneers can hide slight gaps, instantly transforming your smile. Although you may need braces if your gaps are large, many gaps can be successfully concealed with veneers.

Biting on hard objects or years of wear and tear can eventually cause small chips or cracks in your tooth enamel. Veneers conceal the damage and also hide other imperfections that may affect the appearance of your tooth enamel, such as uneven surfaces, pits or bumps.

Are you ready to revitalize your smile with dental veneers? Call your Lansing, MI, dentist, Dr. Scott Stone, at (517) 482-5546 to schedule an appointment.

Though many cosmetic dental issues have specific procedures designed to help individual problems, such as using teeth whitening toVeneers brighten a dull smile or dental bonding to repair a chipped tooth, there are few all-encompassing procedures to truly overhaul your smile. With their ability to completely change the appearance of a tooth, porcelain dental veneers are a powerful cosmetic dentistry tool. Find out more about dental veneers and what they can do for your smile with Dr. Scott Stone at Smile by Stone in Lansing, MI.

What can porcelain dental veneers do for me? 
Thanks to their materials, porcelain veneers are highly versatile, allowing you to change the shape, width, length, and color of your tooth. Porcelain is easily color-matched to your surrounding natural teeth and shares similar light-reflecting qualities as natural teeth, ensuring that your veneers blend into your existing teeth seamlessly and become a natural addition to your smile.

Am I a candidate for dental veneers? 
A good candidate for dental veneers has a great at-home oral care routine consisting of brushing at least twice daily and flossing once alongside regular visits to their dentist twice a year for routine examinations and cleanings. Additionally, candidates should be free from teeth decay and gum disease and should tend to these issues before considering porcelain veneers.

What can I expect from the procedure for dental veneers? 
The procedure for veneers will require at least two dental visits with about two weeks in between. During the wait time between appointments, a dental laboratory will customize each veneer individually. During the first appointment, your dentist will prepare the teeth to receive the veneers and take an impression of your mouth. The dental laboratory uses this impression to design your veneers. Your second appointment is reserved for fitting and permanently attaching the final veneers to your teeth. Your dentist may suggest wearing temporary veneers over your prepared teeth to protect them until your dentist places the final restorations.

How veneers from your Lansing, Michigan dentist can improve your smileVeneers

 

If you have a smile that doesn’t look great, you deserve better! It’s time to think about a dental treatment that can change the way you feel about your smile; it’s called dental veneer treatment! It’s time to meet Dr. Scott Stone at Smile by Stone in Lansing, Michigan. He wants to introduce you to dental veneers, the treatment that can improve your smile and your life!

Dental veneers are thin sheaths of plastic or porcelain which are cemented onto the front surfaces of your teeth. They are the go-to treatment to fix many cosmetic issues you may have with your teeth. These are just some of the reasons why people choose dental veneers:

  • To hide breaks, cracks or other damage
  • To fill out chipped, excessively worn teeth
  • To cosmetically close gaps between teeth
  • To cosmetically change the alignment of overlapped teeth
  • To hide heavy stains or discolorations from lifestyle habits or medications

If you choose porcelain for your veneers, porcelain reflects light, just like your natural teeth. Porcelain is naturally stain-resistant which means you can enjoy a dazzling white smile even if you smoke or drink coffee!

Depending on whether you choose plastic or porcelain for your veneers, you will typically require between 2 and 3 appointments; a consultation appointment, tooth preparation appointment, and then a final appointment to cement your new veneers. You can have a brilliant new smile, just in time for an important event like a reunion or a wedding.
