Do your teeth have flaws that you wish you could get rid of, but you’re concerned about the cost of the procedure? Don’t let the cost hinder you, because our dentists at Summit Woods Family Dental Care in Jackson, MI have many options for improving how your teeth look at many price points, including veneers.
Dental veneers are thin slices of either porcelain or composite resin that fit over your teeth to hide their minor flaws. They can make cracks, chips, broken, or gaps in your teeth disappear within a couple of hours.
Porcelain veneers need to be manufactured in a dental lab, but one of our dentists at Summit Woods Family Dental Care can mold a composite resin to your teeth as you’re sitting in their chair. It is the quickest, least expensive way to get dental veneers.
However, porcelain veneers look more like your natural teeth because porcelain reflects light similarly to the enamel. Plus, our dentists can select the shade of either porcelain or composite resin that matches the best with your natural teeth.
If you decide to get the composite material, our dentist can mold it onto your tooth or teeth that day. After choosing the shade for your teeth, they mix the material until it is pliable enough to mold onto your teeth. Then, as the material is mixing, they get your natural teeth ready by placing a liquid solution onto them that prevents the resin from sliding off your teeth.
Then, they mold the resin to each tooth, whether that’s one, 10, or more of them. Our dentists at Summit Woods Family Dental Caretake their time so that your teeth look natural and their flaws no longer show. After they finish molding your teeth, the dentist dries the material with an ultraviolet light until the substance is hard.
Our dental team can make your teeth look dazzling and flawless in about an hour or two using the composite resin. You will need to wait about two weeks for the veneers to return from the lab, and then our dentist can bond the veneers to your teeth to hide their flaws and give you a great-looking smile.
