Improve your smile appearance with porcelain veneers from Dr. Peter Jost. In his Eastpointe, MI, office, he'll show you how these thin laminates cover defects, reshape individual teeth and create tooth color which is both realistic and visually appealing. Learn more about this wonderful aesthetic service and decide if veneers are right for you.

What are veneers, and what can they fix?

Veneers, or dental laminates as they're also called, are super-thin pieces of high-quality ceramic. Custom-shaped to cover the front of flawed teeth, veneers disguise imperfections in size, shape, and structural integrity (due to congenital malformation or injury). Also, some dentists refer to veneers as instant orthodontics because they cover mild alignment issues such as narrow gaps, mild crowding, and more.

Getting veneers

Only your dentist can tell you if porcelain veneers are your best option. You'll come to Dr. Jost's Eastpointe, MI, office for an exam and review of your cosmetic goals. He can show you how your smile would look with veneers in place.

If you choose them, expect these steps in your treatment plan:

  1. Oral impressions
  2. Tooth resurfacing (removal of 1/2 millimeter of enamel to facilitate veneer fit)
  3. Placement of temporary veneers
  4. Fabrication of your veneers at a trusted dental lab
  5. Placement of your permanent veneers with a tooth-colored and permanent adhesive

Life with your new veneers

Most people adjust to the feel and bite of their new porcelain veneers quickly. Likely you will too.

Also, you can expect many years of sparkling smiles (10 years or more according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry). Veneers are highly durable when you take proper care of them. Actually, care is easy--another benefit of these realistic laminates.

Care includes:

  • Twice daily brushing with a soft toothbrush and low abrasion, fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing once a day to remove plaque from veneer margins
  • Avoiding staining foods and beverages and all tobacco products
  • Gentle use (that means no biting fingernails or chewing ice cubes)
