There’s no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, discolored, badly shaped, chipped, or crooked.

Veneers are a highly popular solution among dental patients because of their life-like tooth appearance. Dr. Zwier of East Grand Rapids certified dentists offers porcelain veneers for patients’ needs.
What are Porcelain Veneers in East Grand Rapids?
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) designed to cover the front side of your teeth. To prepare for veneers, your doctor will create a unique model of your teeth. This model is sent to the dental technician to create your veneers. Before placing your new veneer, your doctor will remove a small amount of your tooth to make room for the veneer. East Grand Rapids dentists can help create a veneer that fits and looks like your natural smile.
How are porcelain veneers installed?
Before placing your new veneer, your doctor will remove a small amount of your tooth to make room for the veneer. A special bonding agent will then be used to ensure that the veneer does not come apart from the original tooth. When placed, you’ll be pleased to see that veneers look like your natural teeth and even resist staining. Though veneers are stain resistant, your doctor may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your veneers.
Taking care of your veneers is simple; just treat them as you would your regular teeth. This includes routine brushing and flossing. A non-abrasive toothpaste will be recommended to keep your veneers looking their best. If you clench or grind your teeth, you may be fitted with a bite guard to wear at night so that your veneers are not damaged.
It is important that one week after you receive your veneers you return to Dr. Zwier’s office for a follow up appointment. This will ensure that your teeth are reacting positively to the veneers, and no other problems have developed. Regular maintenance visits will also be needed for polishing of the veneers with a specially formulated paste.
