Dental veneers serve to eliminate virtually all of your cosmetic concerns regarding your smile. They are effective, look natural, and last a long time: up to 10 to 15 years or longer. At Lakeside Smiles, we’re pleased to make this outstanding treatment available to you, our valued patient.
Our dentist in Holland places dental veneers over the fronts of those teeth that are causing you to be less than satisfied with the appearance of your smile. They are thin, porcelain shells that look so much like your teeth that they blend in seamlessly. In addition, porcelain is strong and stain resistant. So if you engage in habits such as the consumption of tea, coffee, red wine, cola, berries, curry, soy sauce, and hard candy; of if you use tobacco regularly, our dentist in Holland can assure you that your veneers will be able to hold their natural, white shade for significantly longer than other materials would be able to. Three sessions are usually required from start to finish. You first have a consultation and examination. Veneers may not be right for everyone, and you should have an opportunity to have all of your questions answered in a relaxed environment. Impressions are taken and the dental lab uses them as a blueprint to make your veneers to precision. They are then fitted to your teeth for look and comfort. When you are sure you are 100% happy with them, that is when they will be bonded to your teeth. Doing so requires that a minimal amount of material must be filed from the fronts of the teeth that are getting veneers. As a result, there will be a uniform appearance, without any protrusion of the teeth with veneers.
There is no reason you have to settle for a smile that is any less than the way you know it can look. Let our dentist in Holland help. Schedule your visit by reaching out to us now.

Smile Makeover Holland
While dental whitening treatments can be a great way to get a whiter smile, these tooth bleachings do not work to change the physical shape and structure of your teeth. However, you can achieve the smile of your dreams in a completely non-invasive way with cosmetic dental veneers. Dental veneers are a type of tooth-colored appliance that is crafted to be as thin and light as a contact lens, with an individual shell for your each of your teeth. These porcelain shells are crafted uniquely for you needs, allowing them to be able to successfully treat cracks, chips, gaps, and even malformed teeth in your smile. Once your own unique set of porcelain veneers has been crafted by your Holland cosmetic dentist, the veneers are then applied by hand with a special chemical bond that is entirely painless and simple. Prepping process takes only a solution to clean teeth of and debris, and gentle roughening of the application surface to encourage a perfect seal, and takes little to no time at all to complete before each veneers is chemically bonded by hand. Often times patients can request a temporary set of veneers to wear for a day or more to be sure that they love the look of their veneers before they make lifetime commitment to their beautiful new smile.
Unlike other cosmetic dental materials, porcelain has the unique ability to resist staining better than your own teeth, so you never have to worry about coffee or wine harming your beautiful new smile. With the right care your porcelain dental veneers can last a lifetime for a beautiful smile. To find out if porcelain dental veneers are right for you, simply visit the experts at the offices Lakeside Smiles. Dr. Michael E Meyer and our fully licensed and professionally trained team have proudly serving our community as your neighborhood Holland cosmetic dentist for over 25 years. Our experience and advanced care methods make Lakeside Smiles the number one choice in your area of dental veneers that can give you the smile you deserve.
Dental accidents happen. Maybe you broke a tooth during a fall from your bike yesterday. Or maybe that cavity just got out of hand and burrowed its way deep into your tooth. Whatever the circumstances, pulp (the soft tissue inside teeth that contains blood vessels and nerves) can be damaged beyond hope of repair a number of ways, the only viable treatment option being root canal therapy to alleviate pain and avoid infection. Chances are you’re dreading the procedure, even though you may not know exactly what’s involved. This is perfectly natural, but our Holland dentists of Lakeside Smiles have found that education tends to take the edge off medical-related anxiety. If you come to us for a root canal, we want you to come knowing what to expect.
Painless Root Canals Holland
At the outset, it’s important to have a basic picture in your head of what the inside of a tooth looks like. Each of the teeth in your mouth has four basic parts that are arranged in concentric layers. In the same way that the planet Earth has a crust on the outside, a mantle further down and core at the very center; teeth have enamel on the outside, dentin a little further down and then the pulp. Normally when you have a cavity, all our Holland dentist has to do is drill a hole into damaged enamel or dentin to get rid of the decayed lesion and then fill the hole in. It’s relatively simple business. But when your pulp gets damaged — whether due to trauma or an especially bad cavity — the experts here at Lakeside Smiles will need to take somewhat more drastic measures, namely, we’ll need to perform a root canal. We’ll start off the procedure by giving you a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout the operation. Second, we’ll drill a hole wide enough and deep enough to allow our Holland dentist access to the damaged pulp. Next, we’ll use specially-designed files to scrape the pulp not only out of the center of your tooth, but also out of the roots of your teeth. Finally, once everything’s cleaned out, the space left behind by the filing will be packed with a rubber compound, and the initial hole we drilled will be filled like a normal cavity.
Our Holland dentists of Lakeside Smiles know that the injuries and oral disease that lead to root canals are no fun. Thankfully, though, we are experts at performing the root canal itself, which should give you peace of mind.
Generations of healthy smiles is our goal at our Holland family dentist office. Our Holland dental staff takes great satisfaction in helping you and your family maintain optimal oral health. Our Holland dentist, Dr. Michael Meyers focuses on soft-touch preventative services for healthy teeth and gums. We feel it is important that our patients understand the proper way to brush and floss at home, resulting in improved year-round dental health.
A visit to our Holland dental practice will begin with our professional and highly trained hygienist who will clean polish and examine your teeth and gums. We will also go over any suggestions for improving your dental hygiene routines at home, and answer any dental questions you may have. Dr. Meyers or Dr. Katherine Vanderwal will complete a comprehensive examination, which includes an oral cancer screening, TMJ evaluation, review x-rays and making any recommendations for additional treatment that may be necessary.
Among our Holland dentist, Dr. Meyers, dental specialties is the treatment of sleep apnea. If you are troubled by mood shifts and fatigue you may have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA occurs when the airway becomes blocked during sleep, causing the person to wake up in order to regain muscle strength in the throat to reopen. Therefore people with OSA do not get sufficient sleep. OSA can be treated, and our Holland sleep apnea dentist specializes in diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
