Lapeer residents give glowing reviews of porcelain veneer treatments

While a number of procedures fall into the cosmetic dentistry category, one of our most requested options is porcelain veneer treatments. In an updated 2013 survey, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found veneers were second only to whitening as the most popular procedure – with 26 percent of respondents noting "veneers" as their offices' most common cosmetic treatment. "Bonding" and "whitening" came in # 1 for 29 percent and 28 percent of respondents respectively.

In all, these three treatments made up more than 80 percent of responses as the most sought-after procedures.

These thin strips of porcelain applied to the front of our teeth are popular for a number of good reasons, including:
  • Veneers look like our natural teeth
  • Porcelain is both durable and strong
  • Veneers are versatile, and can cover chips and small gaps, and reshape and realign teeth
  • Stubborn or gray stains that couldn't be bleached can be covered up
  • Unlike crowns, only a small amount of enamel must be removed to accommodate veneers
  • Veneers generally last five to ten years, or longer
  • Minimal complications with the exception of sensitivity to hot or cold from enamel being removed, which usually subsides in a few days
  • Doesn't require special maintenance, just the usual good oral care of brushing, flossing, and regular professional cleanings and check-ups
For all these reasons, patients write glowing porcelain veneer reviews. Lapeer area residents, during consultation with our experienced team at Metropolitan Dental Center, may find they are better served with aligners or braces for very crowded or twisted teeth. For extensive chips and damage, bonding or crowns may be a better fit.

If habits like teeth grinding and clenching, fingernail biting, or the tendency to bite open packages and bottles are a problem for you, the porcelain can chip or fracture. We may recommend a mouth guard to protect your improved and restored tooth. Let's match you with the best solution, be it porcelain veneers, restorations, or a dental appliance, by calling our office at (248) 365-7737.
