The Benefits of Veneers: Instant Symmetry, Realistic Results, and More

Porcelain veneers have virtually countless benefits. These are some of the key reasons why dental veneers by Dr. Craig Goldin and his team are so popular among patients:

Dental veneers address a wide variety of cosmetic flaws that can affect your smile. You don't necessarily need extensive dental work to get the results you want. In fact, for some patients, an entire smile makeover can be achieved simply using veneers on their own.


The dental-grade porcelain used to create veneers is able to withstand regular wear and tear. Patients can bite and chew without worrying about their veneers getting damaged. With proper care, veneers can last for 10 years or longer.

Stain Resistance

The porcelain used in veneers is resistant to stains. Patients won't have to worry about whitening or bleaching their veneers. However, your natural teeth can become stained, so be mindful of the foods and beverages you consume.

Realistic Results

The semi-translucent porcelain allows light to pass through dental veneers much like your natural teeth. That means that your veneers blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile, and others won't realize you've undergone dental work.

Renewed Confidence

Now that your smile is rejuvenated and enhanced, you can laugh, speak, and smile with total confidence. Porcelain veneers are great if you feel self-conscious about your smile or work in a field where first impressions can make a big difference.

The staff is incredibly detailed, professional, and caring. Shall we talk about Dr. Goldin? He’s an artist, a magician, and in my case a miracle worker. I walked into his office petrified of the dentist, horribly self conscious of my smile, and mentally a mess from previous dental work done elsewhere. I walked out after two sleepy visits a new man. I’ve smiled more the last year than I have in the past ten and I owe that all to Dr Goldin and his dream team! Thank you!

I drive almost 3 hours to come to the Cosmetic Dentistry Institute. From day one everyone from the receptionist, the hygienist and Dr. Goldin have made me feel so comfortable. I recently had osseous surgery and my veneers replaced. I couldn’t be happier with the results and the care I received. Thank you for everything!

Candidacy for Porcelain Veneers

If you have a minor cosmetic issue with a front tooth or multiple front teeth, you can probably benefit from dental veneers. Good candidates for veneers tend to have:

Cosmetic Dental Problems

Veneer candidates have cosmetic issues affecting one tooth or many teeth. While porcelain veneers are durable, they are not ideal for people who require general or restorative work, such as crowns, inlays, or onlays.

Healthy Tooth Structure

It's important that dental veneer candidates have healthy teeth. To place a veneer, a small amount of enamel needs to be removed from a tooth. This helps the veneer lay flush beside surrounding teeth. 

Commitment to Oral Health

The results of dental veneer treatment are exceptional, but patients need to practice good aftercare. That means committing to proper oral hygiene and other practices that prevent tooth decay and veneer damage.

The Porcelain Veneers Procedure: A Timeline for Treatment

Getting dental veneers placed takes about two weeks. Below is a general overview of the procedure and what patients can expect:

The Initial Consultation

Assessing Candidacy

During your initial dental visit, we'll determine if porcelain veneers are right for you. If not, we may suggest alternatives such as teeth whitening or dental bonding.

Prepping the Teeth

Prepping the teeth for veneers comes next. Less than a millimeter of enamel will be removed from the front of a tooth so the ultra-thin veneer can fit properly.

Taking Impressions

With each tooth prepped and ready, our dentists can then take impressions. From these impressions, the custom veneers will be created at an off-site dental lab.

Temporary Veneers

While waiting for the final porcelain veneers to be completed, patients will wear temporary veneers. Full instructions for care will be provided by your dentist.

Creating Custom Veneers

Using fine dental porcelain, lab technicians will create restorations that complement your natural teeth in terms of fit as well as color. They strive for natural-looking results.

Returning to the Practice

Once the lab completes its work, patients return to our Troy, MI practice. The temporary veneers are removed and the adhesive is cleaned away.

Placing Final Veneers

The porcelain veneers are checked for fit before they are cemented in place. We want to ensure comfort and aesthetics so that patients will immediately have something to smile about.
