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

Porcelain veneers have many benefits. These are some of the key reasons dental veneers are so popular among patients:
chipped and gapped tooth


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 by 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 semitranslucent porcelain allows light to pass through dental veneers much as it does with natural tooth enamel. 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.

"Incredibly detailed, professional, and caring." Great Reviews For Our Dentists in Troy, MI

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!

Philip's Porcelain Veneers Testimonial

This video testimonial from Cosmetic Dentistry Institute patient Philip details the numerous ways that porcelain veneers changed his life for the better.

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.

Will Dental Insurance  Help Cover Veneers?

Dental insurance providers won't cover treatments that aren't medically necessary. Because veneers are purely cosmetic, they won't be covered. However, at the Cosmetic Dentistry Institute, this doesn't have to be an obstacle between you and the gorgeous cosmetic results you're looking for.

You can secure financing for your treatment through CareCredit® or LendingClub®. These lenders offer loans with low interest and manageable monthly payment plans.

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:

Assessing Candidacy

During your initial visit to our practice in Troy, MI, 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

To begin your treatment, we'll prep your teeth. Less than a millimeter of enamel will be removed from the front of each treated tooth so the ultra-thin veneers can fit properly.

Taking Impressions

With each tooth prepped and ready, our dentists can then take impressions of your smile. These impressions will be sent to an off-site dental lab where skilled technicians will use them as a blueprint to craft your custom veneers.

Temporary Veneers

We'll provide a set of temporary veneers for you to wear while your custom veneers are being fabricated. Your dentist will give you detailed instructions on how to best care for your temporary veneers.

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 Our Office

Once the lab completes your veneers, you'll return to our Troy, MI, practice for a fitting. Your temporary veneers will be removed, and the adhesive will be cleaned from your enamel.

Placing Your Porcelain

The porcelain veneers will be bonded in place with dental cement. Before they are bonded to your teeth, we will ensure that they are comfortable and aesthetically pleasing so you will immediately have something to smile about.

Caring for Your New Porcelain Veneers

When you choose our practice in Troy for your cosmetic transformation, our commitment to you won't end once your treatment is complete. Your dentist will provide detailed instructions on how to maintain the look and function of your veneers for years to come. Here are some helpful tips to get you started:

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

It goes without saying that good oral hygiene is the key to happy, healthy teeth. This is no different for teeth that are covered by porcelain veneers. Proper brushing and flossing will keep your veneers clean and eliminate cavity-causing bacteria that can interrupt your treatment. We also recommend using mouthwash to reach any tight spots that flossing cannot address.

Avoid Staining Foods and Drinks

Though porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, they can still become discolored from frequent exposure to certain foods and drinks. Coffee, red wine, and marinara sauce are just a few of the substances that can stain veneers if consumed on a regular basis. You don't have to cut these items from your diet — just monitor your consumption and brush afterward.

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

If you wear porcelain veneers, attending regular checkups gives your dentist the best opportunity to monitor the results of your treatment. In addition to maintaining your dental health, your dentist can use your visit to check the comfort and appearance of your veneers and identify the potential for issues before they arise.

If you ever experience a complication with your veneers, such as staining or chipping, you can reach out to us right away for assistance. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we'll always be available to help.
