More and more people are loving their new smiles, courtesy of dental veneers, which are tooth-colored, ultra-thin shells that fit over your teeth to eliminate visible dental flaws. What’s not to love? Then can instantly conceal stubborn discoloration, malformed, cracked, and chipped teeth.

Here at Carey & Aylward, DDS, PC in Westland, MI, our dentists, Dr. Dennis Aylward, Dr. Brent Carey, and Dr. Allison Carey, use porcelain veneers to transform dull smiles into dazzling smiles. To understand what exactly veneers can do for your smile and why many people love their results, let’s take a look at what they can offer.

Porcelain Veneers Offer Potent Stain-Resistant Properties

Porcelain is essentially ceramic, which means that it has that glass-like quality, is impervious, and very smooth. All these qualities make porcelain veneers very resistant to staining.

Porcelain Veneers Look Like Real Teeth

This is the primary reason for the growing popularity of porcelain veneers and is largely due in part to their ability to mimic the look of the tooth enamel. This is what makes them look realistic and virtually indistinguishable from real teeth.

Porcelain Veneers Are Extremely Sturdy

Veneers made of porcelain last relatively long, as much as 15 years or more.

Porcelain Veneers Don’t Need Extensive Shaping

When compared to dental crowns, veneers don’t need extensive shaping before installation, so they leave more healthy teeth structure intact. Additionally, in some cases, the teeth don’t even need reshaping when placing super-slim porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Veneers Offer Color Versatility

Depending on your specific preferences, you can choose porcelain veneers in an ultra-white shade or a more realistic-looking whiter than off-white shade. They’re also an excellent alternative to professional bleaching if you have discolored teeth that in-office whitening by your dentist in Westland, MI, can’t fix.

Porcelain Veneers Can Restore Your Smile and Confidence

Because they can mask various dental imperfections like slightly misaligned teeth, gapped teeth, discolored teeth, and teeth with minor cracks, porcelain veneers dramatically restore your smile, and in turn, boost your confidence.
