If you’re not a morning person, waking up and getting to work on time can be a laborious task, especially if you’re responsible for getting others to work or school on time as well. Lansing dentist Holly Scott-Hetchler knows that morning cup of coffee is essential to the start of your day. She also knows that even though these morning habits start your day off right, they can also lead to stained teeth that affect your confidence when you smile.
The world of modern dentistry has a solution for this very problem. Patients in Lansing that have badly stained, crooked, or misshapen teeth should consider veneers to improve the overall appearance of their smiles.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are tooth prosthetic devices, but are unlike dentures and dental implants because they are actually bonded to the natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can hide undesirable tooth defects, such as stained teeth or injured teeth. Occasionally, veneers are recommended to patients as the final step in a root canal procedure, and these covers are are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth.
Who Needs Veneers?
Celebrities Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Katherine Heigl, Katie Holmes, and Zac Efron all owe their show-stopping smiles to dental veneers. However, celebrities aren’t the only people who have access to cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers are a great option for patients who have gaps in their teeth or teeth that have been chipped or worn down over time. Dr. Scott-Hetchler believes that A-listers aren’t the only ones who deserve the opportunity to have a great smile. All her Lansing, MI patients receive excellent care and leave her office smiling like a Hollywood starlet.
