The perfect smile can be yours when you get dental veneers.

Getting a beautiful smile doesn’t have to be difficult. Whether you hate that small gap between teeth or you have stains that even veneersprofessional whitening can’t seem to tackle, there are many reasons people are turning to our St. Clair Shores, MI, dentist Dr. Sam Malouf for veneers.

Veneers are thin tooth-colored layers made of porcelain that are designed to mimic the look of natural tooth enamel. Each veneer is custom-made and bonded to the front of a tooth to improve its overall appearance and to hide common imperfections. Furthermore, veneers can also offer additional resiliency and durability.

Veneers can be used for a myriad of cosmetic issues. If you have small gaps in your smile but don’t want to undergo orthodontic treatment, getting veneers could give you the straighter smile you want without having to wear braces. Veneers can also be used to:

  • Brighten your smile
  • Hide stains and discolorations
  • Cover chips, cracks and fractures
  • Close gaps
  • Improve misshapen or malformed teeth
  • Lengthen teeth that are too short or worn down

In order to get veneers, our St. Clair Shores, MI, cosmetic dentist will first need to make sure your teeth are healthy, free of decay and strong enough to support veneers. If you are deemed a good candidate for treatment the next step will be to prepare your teeth.

Impressions will also be taken of the tooth. These impressions will help a dental lab create veneers that offer an ideal and precise fit. While your veneers are being made we will apply temporary ones. Once the lab has sent us your veneers, we will remove the temporary ones and then check the fit of your new veneers before bonding them to the front of your teeth.
