We can help you look years younger and restore a confident, happy smile with veneers. Our father-daughter team, Dr. Rachel Malin and Dr. Leo Malin provide custom tooth restorations that are comfortable, attractive, and long-lasting, including veneers.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent layers of porcelain that are custom-made to fit over your existing teeth to enhance their color, shape, and size. They are painless, feel entirely natural, and can correct a wide range of cosmetic issues with your teeth, including:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Misaligned or uneven teeth
  • Teeth that have become worn down
  • Gaps between your teeth

Am I a candidate?

When you arrive, we will begin with an in-depth consultation and evaluation of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Our doctors will utilize X-rays and advanced imaging technology to get a perfect picture of your teeth, which allows us to determine whether you are a good candidate for veneers. As a general rule, your teeth will have to be structurally healthy to accommodate them safely. If your tooth is too damaged, we may recommend a crown or a dental implant with a customized crown instead.

What to expect with porcelain veneers

Receiving porcelain veneers is a three-step process that can be achieved in two or three visits. It is virtually painless, and the results can last a lifetime. The necessary steps you can expect are:

  • Consultation: We will X-ray your teeth to make sure you are a candidate for veneers.
  • Smile Design: At Grand River Dental, we use an advanced smile design system, Exocad, which allows us to create lifelike mock-ups of what can be accomplished with veneers and how they will look on you. The Exocad system helps us custom design your veneers to be both cosmetically attractive and functional. Exocad is the most sophisticated dental CAD design software available, with features such as Jaw Motion Import and Smile Design. With this technology, we can achieve an extraordinary result.
  • Preparation: Dr. Rachel Malin will carefully remove a small layer of enamel from your existing teeth, after which she creates a mold of your teeth to send to our in-house lab. Your veneers will be custom created, so they fit beautifully. While waiting for your final veneers, you will be fitted with attractive temporaries.
  • Placement: Once our dentist receives your new veneers, she will check the fit and color of them and adjust as needed. The fitting can take some time, as she will be making minute adjustments and checking them repeatedly until they are perfect. She will then prepare your teeth to receive the veneers and attach them with a special bonding cement hardened with a UV light.
