Porcelain Veneers

Learn More

Chips, cracks, and slight misalignment may be minor issues when it comes to your oral health, but these tooth flaws can also be a major source of self-consciousness.

The good news is that Legacy Dental Group can conceal these issues with porcelain veneers so that you have something to smile about for years to come.

Find out what porcelain veneers placed at our Birmingham, MI, dental practice can do for you...

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells of translucent, tooth-colored porcelain that are attached directly to the front surface of a tooth. Veneers are customized to conceal imperfections in the color, shape, and overall appearance of your tooth or several teeth. If you want to achieve an unforgettable smile, Drs. Jeffrey Grabiel, John Mills, and Raymond J. Kim at Legacy Dental Group in Birmingham, MI, can place porcelain veneers to enhance your smile and improve your self-confidence. They also place composite veneers, which involve layering tooth-colored resin directly onto the tooth to conceal imperfections (a process known as dental bonding). You can count on us to provide an upgrade that looks amazing, but also looks like your natural teeth.

Dramatic Results

Veneers can artfully conceal:

  • Small chips or cracks in a tooth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen or crooked teeth
  • Stains that are resistant to teeth whitening
  • Worn teeth

The translucent quality of the porcelain mimics the natural sparkle of enamel. Our Birmingham practice works with the best labs in the country to create veneers that are as lifelike as possible. Our veneers are made with medical-grade ceramic to produce a surface that resists staining.

Composite Resin Veneers

Comparison of veneer to fingertip At Legacy Dental Group in Birmingham, we offer both traditional porcelain veneers and composite bonded veneers. The advantages of composite resin veneers are that they are created in one visit and are less expensive than porcelain. However, composite veneers may not replicate the natural appearance of teeth as well as porcelain veneers. They can be repaired, unlike porcelain veneers, but are not quite as resistant to stains. These types of veneers are not as durable as their porcelain counterparts. During a consultation, our dentists can help you decide which option is best for your needs.

"My First Visit Did Not Disappoint."

My daughter recommended Legacy Dental after her positive experience there. My first visit did not disappoint. There was no wait. COVID precautions were well executed. The dentist, Dr. Kim, was thorough and took the time to explain what’s going on. Look forward to future visits to Legacy Dental!

-Manju Prabhu, 5-Star Google Review, 2020

I have been a patient at Legacy Dental Group for around 20 years. What can I say, other than before then I was terrified of visiting a dentist, and their staff took all the pain and anguish out of it? I was always treated with great care and respect, and never once I had to go back to fix something that hadn't been done right.

Are Veneers Right for Me?

Although dental veneers can improve the appearance of your smile, they do not realign or correct your bite the way orthodontic treatments can. If dental misalignment is affecting your oral health, orthodontics may be a more appropriate treatment. It is also important to be in good oral health before receiving veneers. If necessary, our dentists can complete periodontal treatments to resolve gum disease prior to your porcelain veneer treatment. They can also address any tooth decay with treatments such as fillings.

The best way to determine if porcelain veneers can help you achieve the smile you want is to make an appointment at our office. During a consultation, you can discuss your goals and needs with one of our highly trained dentists and decide if veneers are the right way to enhance your tooth or teeth. We will only recommend a treatment if we truly believe it will meet your goals and harmonize with your oral health. If this solution is not right for you, we provide others that can give you the dazzling new smile you desire.

After the tooth has been modified to accommodate the restoration, a veneer can be placed directly over its front.

Maintaining Your New Smile

Proper care is crucial for maintaining the appearance and longevity of your veneers. The best ways to maintain veneers include:

  • Brushing twice and flossing at least once every day
  • Undergoing dental exams and cleanings at least twice a year
  • Avoiding using your veneers to bite or crack hard objects such as nuts or ice

By following these tips, your porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years. It is important to understand that due to the alteration of enamel, your treated teeth will always require some kind of restoration. Our caring dentists in Birmingham are here to help you experience the maximum benefits and enjoyment of this powerful and versatile cosmetic solution. We like to establish ongoing relationships with our patients so that we can help them achieve and maintain beautiful, healthy smiles for a lifetime.
