Almost everyone desires an attractive, bright, straight set of teeth because your smile is one of the first things people see when they greet veneersyou. Veneers may be the solution that will change your smile into one that rivals that of Hollywood stars. This popular cosmetic treatment is available at the office of Dr. Steven Wainess in St. Clair Shores, MI.

Why Veneers?
A Delta Dental survey found that nearly half of Americans consider an attractive smile to be the most important physical feature, and 64 percent believe it can make you more successful. Many seek cosmetic dentistry to improve their teeth, but not every patient can benefit from treatments like Invisalign or tooth whitening. Veneers will improve the smile of just about any patient as long as their teeth and gums are in good health.

Can Veneers Help You?
If your teeth and gums are free from dental disease, veneers may be just right for you. They help you by shoring up your smile and covering teeth that are poorly sized, eroded, dark in color, or chipped. In a relatively short period of time and after a few appointments with your St. Clair Shores dentist, you can have a whole new look. If you are missing one or more teeth, an additional treatment like dental implants may be required to complete your smile.

Does It Take Long to Get Veneers?
If you have an important social or business event coming up and want a better-looking smile before the big day, veneers may be your best bet. The process of getting veneers will take about a month and will be well worth the wait. The first visit is for preparation and impressions; the second is for applying the veneers and adjusting them as needed. Many people are able to maintain this nicer looking smile for up to 20 years.
