Dental Veneers Can Improve and Help Maintain Your White Smile

Posted .

A dull, stained smile suffering from multiple imperfections can leave you feeling self-conscious in social settings. Here at Saigh Family Dental, our team of dental professionals is highly trained and experienced in a wide array of cosmetic dentistry treatments. We can help you explore and understand all of your options for improving your smile.

If you have multiple teeth suffering from imperfections, like stains, chips, and past dental work, we might recommend installing dental veneers.

Dental veneers in Iron River, Michigan, are basically porcelain shells that are custom crafted in a dental lab to match or enhance the natural shape of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material is shaded to look just like natural tooth enamel, only whiter. Since the porcelain material isn’t as porous as tooth enamel, the veneers will also resist future stains.

Your dentist will examine each tooth in your smile and take a few X-rays. This ensures that there is sufficient strong enamel to later mount the veneers.

If one or more teeth lack sufficient enamel or if you would like to make significant changes to the shape of the tooth, your dentist, Dr. Frederick M. Saigh, might recommend having the tooth completely restored with a dental crown.

Once all the teeth have been addressed, your dentist will create an impression of each tooth in your smile. This is sent to a dental lab where your custom dental veneers will be produced.

We will call you in for a second appointment when your new veneers are ready. We will then use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. This prepares the surface of the tooth to securely hold the dental veneer that is cemented into place.

If you have multiple smile imperfections, you should contact Saigh Family Dental at 906-265-0050 to see if dental veneers are right for you.
