Dental Veneer Services Near Grand Rapids
A porcelain tooth veneer is a very thin, durable cover that is placed over a tooth. The dental veneer is bonded permanently to the tooth, and is semi-translucent to appear identical to a real tooth. Veneers are the most biocompatible material available in dentistry today. Because of these benefits, teeth veneers have become a very popular option for our Grand Rapids area patients needing mild restorative work. Although not ideal for every case (a dental veneer doesn’t work well for a heavily damaged tooth or extensively repaired teeth), there are many cases in which it makes a lot of sense to use teeth veneers:
- Broken/chipped teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth with permanent or unbleachable stains
- Discolored or unsightly fillings
What Are The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are one of the simplest, most aesthetically pleasing restorations available. Apart from restoring your natural smile, a tooth veneer is also strong and stain-resistant, keeping your smile brilliant. A minimal amount of the tooth enamel is removed in order to apply a veneer.
Generally, applying porcelain veneers is also a quick process and takes no more than two appointments to our Comstock Park office. Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull also use prepless veneers, which are even thinner and can be bonded over the top of a tooth with very little or no preparation.
When Are Other Solutions Better?
If a tooth is severely decayed, broken, or has lost a significant part of its structure, it makes more sense to use a dental crown or other restorative work.

Maybe! We’d love to talk to you about it.
