Porcelain Veneers in Okemos

Applied by an Experienced & Proficient Dentist

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-designed porcelain coverings that are bonded to the front of the prepared teeth. Porcelain veneers can completely change the way your teeth look, providing you with the smile you’ve always wanted. Although whitening can produce good results for teeth that are slightly discolored or dull, porcelain veneers are the preferred choice for many patients and dentists.

Why are Porcelain Veneers Often Referred to as “Instant Orthodontics”?

Porcelain veneers are custom-designed to change not only the color of the teeth, but the shape and size. They can mask crooked teeth, disguise spaces, and hide unevenness. The result? The beautiful, straight smile you’ve always dreamed of.

How Long Will Porcelain Veneers Last?

The technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed. Generally, porcelain veneers in Okemos will last for many years.

Will They Stain?

They are highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, red wine, or even cigarette smoke.

Do Porcelain Veneers All Look Alike?

No. Porcelain veneers can look like natural teeth when done correctly. The difference is in the skill of the dentist that designs your new smile, including the size, shape, and color, and the lab that produces the veneer based on your dentist’s design. Creating the perfect smile requires a blending of precision dentistry with an artistic sensitivity, perfect planning, and an eye for detail.

How Do I Know Which Dentist To Select For My Porcelain Veneers?

Designing a beautiful smile is a blend of art and science. Great attention to detail and precision is required on a tooth-by-tooth basis. Selecting a dentist such as Dr. Tenaglia, who has not only a great deal of practical experience in cosmetic dentistry, but has undergone extensive, advanced training in cosmetic dentistry at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), can help ensure that you will have a beautiful, lasting smile that is also functional and balanced.

Can I See What My New Smile Will Look Like Before I Get The Veneers?

Yes! There are several ways you can see your new smile and the dramatic impact on your appearance beforehand. Dr. Tenaglia will work closely with you to determine the type of smile you want to achieve.

Recently, I have heard about a porcelain veneer for your teeth that does not require removing any tooth structure.

Can You Tell Me More About This?

Yes, there is a new porcelain veneer product that requires no preparation of the tooth, no shots, and no drilling. It is called a no-prep veneer. While there are advantages to using this restorative veneer, there are limitations as to its use. Not all patients are candidates.

Who Would Be A Candidate For These Porcelain Veneers?

The perfect patient for no-prep veneers is one who would benefit from larger teeth to form a more ideal arch. In this case, a contact lens-like veneer is bonded to the patient’s smaller tooth, which gives the patient a new, bright, beautiful, and symmetrical smile.
