Beautiful porcelain or composite veneers in Westland, MI, can tweak the shapes and colors of your teeth to make them look more appealing in your smile. Carey & Aylward, DDS, PC, enhance your smile in the ways you want. Dr. Dennis Aylward, Dr. Brent Carey, and Dr. Allison Carey design wafer-thin veneers to mask some of your smile's most visible imperfections.

Veneers for smile reshaping

Veneers bonded to misshapen, broken, or discolored teeth can give you the convincing appearance of a pristine smile. Damages accumulate on your teeth over time from your behaviors, habits, and natural aging. Your dentist uses durable bonding to attach them to specific teeth after an in-depth design process.

You might consider veneers as a cosmetic solution for:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Small teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Whitening-resistant discoloration
  • Uneven spacing between teeth

Throughout the design process for your veneers in Westland, MI, your dentist listens to your input about what you'd like your new teeth to look like. By using materials like porcelain, which is slightly translucent, you can get veneers that look and function very closely to natural enamel.

Maintaining your veneers

You can live life pretty normally after reshaping your smile with veneers, but there are a few considerations you should take to make sure the veneers stay intact. Veneers typically need replacement eventually, especially since their placement requires that some natural enamel be removed.

You can maintain your veneers by taking care of them in the ways you take care of your natural teeth, like brushing twice a day and flossing every day. Plus, you should keep coming in for professional cleanings to remove dental plaque and check in on the health of your teeth and gums.

Be sure to avoid biting down on pencils, ice cubes, popcorn seeds, hard candies, and other objects that can break a veneer or cause it to fall off your tooth. If you grind your teeth at night, your dentist can get you a custom nightguard to protect the veneers from bruxism damage.

You don't have to sacrifice teeth that are still healthy in order to enjoy a beautifully reshaped smile. At Carey & Aylward, DDS, PC, dentists Dr. Dennis Aylward, Dr. Brent Carey, and Dr. Allison Carey design and craft your new veneers in Westland, MI, to your specifications.
