Veneers are thin porcelain shells used by Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our talented dentist, to perfect many dental flaws. Bonded directly to the front of your teeth, dental veneers are custom made based on exact specifications for each tooth that is being repaired. At Great Lakes Dentistry in Shelby Township MI, veneers are most often used to repair:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Misshapen or irregular teeth
  • Very worn teeth
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Teeth with gaps or spaces

It generally takes two visits to our dental office to design, create, and apply your restorations. Although, in some cases, a complete smile makeover can be completed in a single visit. Typically, at your first visit, your teeth will be prepared through a light rebuffing process that removes a small layer of tooth enamel. This ensures your veneer will fit properly and be the correct size and shape. Along with molds of your smile, this information is sent to a dental laboratory where your veneers will be made. When the finished veneers arrive at our practice, we will invite you back to our office and ensure that they fit perfectly. After any final adjustments have been made, your dental veneers will be permanently cemented into place. On average, they can last for over a decade when taken care of properly with good oral hygiene and vigilant oral health protection.
