Spring has sprung and thoughts turn to love. If you’d love to enhance your smile, then Dr. Michael Michel at Michel Dental in Topeka, KS, has the right cosmetic dentistry treatment for you. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Michel can correct the flaws in your smile and give you one to fall in love with.
If you tend to cover your mouth every time you smile or laugh, then you should really consider permanently covering your smile with porcelain veneers. Made of thin layers of dental porcelain, veneers are adhesively bonded to the front side of the teeth in your smile zone. They can correct a number of smile imperfections, including:
- Teeth with chips
- Teeth that are slightly cracked
- Somewhat misaligned teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth that have not responded to whitening
- Teeth with gaps in between them
- Uneven teeth
- Teeth that are unusually worn
The Porcelain Veneer Process
Once Dr. Michel determines that you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, then you are probably only two appointments away from having a smile that is certain to put a spring in your step. At your first visit, you and Dr. Michel will discuss your smile goals while always keeping in mind that you want your veneers to be appropriate for your mouth, your face and even your complexion. A treatment plan will be devised, so you can see what your smile will look like when your veneers are placed.
Then, Dr. Michel will prepare your teeth and take a molded impression, which is sent to our reliable dental lab. While your permanent veneers are being fabricated, you’ll wear temporaries to protect your teeth. When your custom veneers arrive, you’ll return to our office for Dr. Michel to cement them on to your teeth. Each will be trimmed and polished as needed for a perfect fit.

If you could change one little thing about your smile, what would it be? Perhaps a slightly chipped or cracked tooth. Or maybe you have one or two teeth that are misaligned. Is there a gap between your front teeth that you’ve always wanted to close? Well then, cosmetic bonding may be the solution. With cosmetic bonding and one appointment Dr. Michael Michel in Topeka, KS, can repair your smile.
Today, cosmetic bonding is a common dental procedure in which a tooth-colored material—usually a sturdy plastic material—is applied to the tooth and hardened with a special light. Cosmetic bonding is not only used to repair a host of cosmetic concerns—chips, cracks, discolored teeth, misaligned or misshapen teeth—but now these same tooth colored materials are used to fill cavities.
The Process of Cosmetic Bonding
For cosmetic bonding, Dr. Michel will carefully examine the tooth or teeth that need repair to determine whether or not cosmetic bonding is the correct treatment. If so, then he will prepare the surface of the tooth and smooth on the liquid bonding material. After the material is molded, an ultraviolet light hardens the material. Dr. Michel will then further sculpt and trim the bonding for a finish that blends seamlessly with your other teeth.
In most cases, cosmetic bonding is used to repair front teeth. So in order to preserve the strength of the bonding, Dr. Michel recommends not biting on hard foods, such as carrots or apples. Otherwise, teeth that have had cosmetic bonding require no special treatment. Simply brush and floss as you would your other teeth and your new smile will give you pleasure for years to come.

Minor chips, cracks, and misalignments in your smile can be a difficult thing to live with. Your teeth go through life’s hard knocks, and can become discolored and damaged. Many people consider a smile is a first impression, and if you do not feel confident about your smile, it can really have a negative effect on how you see yourself. Luckily, Dr. Michael Michel is able to transform your smile with the help of porcelain veneers.
The process of porcelain veneers begins with a consultation with Dr. Michel. There, he will be able to get a good look at your smile, and ask you about your long-term goals. Also, during the consultation, you will be able to express any questions or concerns you may have regarding the procedure. When it comes time to apply your porcelain veneers, Dr. Michel will prepare your natural tooth by removing a small amount of enamel. Your custom-made veneers will be applied, and made permanent with dental resin cement. At the end, you are left with a beautiful, flawless smile!
One of the benefits of porcelain veneers is that they are stain resistant. You won’t have to worry about having that extra cup of coffee or glass of red wine, as your smile will always be dazzling. Also, with proper care and maintenance, your porcelain veneers can last up to ten years! If you have any questions on how Dr. Michel can help with your journey to porcelain veneers, make an appointment and we’d be glad to help!
