Porcelain Veneers

Novi Cosmetic Dentist | Dr. Joseph Serra

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that can be professionally fitted to your natural tooth structure by a cosmetic dentist. Dr. Joseph Serra can make your smile look and feel amazing. The porcelain veneers, once put on, are meant to be kept on forever, as they are permanently bonded to your existing teeth. Porcelain is a commonly used material because it looks and feels much like a normal tooth does in color, texture, and translucency, so your smile won’t look fake or awkward.

The great thing about porcelain veneers is that they not only look great, but they further protect your natural teeth from any more damage. Getting porcelain veneers is sure to give you the white, bright, eye-catching smile that you’ve always dreamed of having.

Porcelain veneers is a great option if you have:

  • Discoloration in your teeth
  • Stains due to food and drink
  • Chips and cracks
  • Crookedness
  • Worn down teeth
  • Unevenly sized teeth that may be too narrow or too wide

How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?

The first visit is an evaluation of your teeth and deciding what type of result you are seeking. We will cover things such as:

  • Size, color and shape you want your porcelain veneers to be. We strive to give you the most natural look possible.
  • Your expectations and what porcelain veneers will be able to do to improve your overall smile
  • Preparing the surface of your teeth to be fitted with porcelain veneers

A custom mold of your teeth is then made so that your porcelain veneers can be created. During the time between your first and second appointment, you will wear temporary veneers while the permanent porcelain ones are being made.

During the second appointment, Dr. Serra will carefully remove the temporary veneers. After a thorough cleaning of your teeth, the porcelain veneers will be attached with the use of a permanent dental adhesive.

Porcelain veneers will give you amazing results in as little as two appointments and you’ll never have to feel embarrassed about your smile again. If you live in Novi or surrounding areas and you’re interested in porcelain veneers, contact our dental office.
