Find out if you have what it takes to get porcelain veneers.
It’s amazing how much a smile can make or break a first impression or encounter. If you find yourself feeling anything but confident about how your smile looks then you may find yourself avoiding social situations. But our Milwaukee dentist, Dr. Paul Scholl, has some good news. A simple restoration known as a dental veneer could quickly transform your smile. Find out if you could be the ideal candidate for this cosmetic dentistry.
Your Dental Issues
While there are many cosmetic dentistry options out there, not all of them can offer the results you’re looking for. So, how can you tell if veneers are the best option? Well, one way is to determine which issues you want to correct with the help of dental veneers. Some problems that can be treated with veneers include:
- Chips, cracks and other wear and tear on teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Malformed or misshapen teeth
- Minor misalignment (crooked or crowded smiles)
All smiles must be in the best of health before you can get cosmetic dentistry in Milwaukee. This requires us to perform a thorough evaluation to look for issues such as decay or gum disease. If you don’t have any of these issues then we will most likely deem you a great candidate for veneers.
Your Tooth Enamel
If you are someone who grinds their teeth then we may notice that your teeth have a lot of excessive wear and tear. In this case, there may not be enough tooth enamel needed to properly support your veneers. This is something we will be able to determine when you come in for your consultation.
Before you get cosmetic dentistry it’s important that you are committed not only to caring for your oral health but also your new restorations. While dental veneers are made from durable porcelain, they aren’t impervious to damage. Certain bad habits like teeth grinding or using your teeth as tools can break your veneers. If you want to keep your veneers healthy you’ll want to maintain smile-friendly habits and nix those bad habits for good.
