Want to know more about getting dental veneers from our Milwaukee office?
Interested in getting a straighter, whiter or more even smile? If so, then our Milwaukee, WI, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Paul Scholl, could give you the smile you want with help from porcelain veneers. Before determining if this is the right treatment for you, read on to learn more about these simple restorations and what they can do to makeover your appearance.
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are ultra-thin shells, often made from porcelain, that are bonded to the front of your teeth in order to hide imperfections and to improve the overall shape, color, and appearance of your smile. Just like fake nails are used to improve the look of your nails, veneers are designed to do the same for your teeth!
What cosmetic issues can veneers hide?
Since veneers cover the entire surface of a tooth, there are many defects that can easily be hidden. Some of these aesthetic issues include,
- Stains and discolorations
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Minor crowding or crookedness
- Uneven or worn teeth
- Teeth that are too short
- Misshapen teeth
No matter whether you are dealing with one or more of these issues, dental veneers may be able to help you get your smile back on track.
What should I expect when I get dental veneers?
In most cases, you will have two separate visits to our office: One so that we can prep your teeth and take impressions of your mouth, and another to cement the veneers to your teeth. During the consultation at our Milwaukee office, your dentist will take x-rays, examine your mouth, and discuss treatment goals to make sure that veneers are right for you.
How long do they last?
The longevity of your veneers will depend on you and how well you care for them. They can often last anywhere from seven to 20 years, although in some instances they may need to be repaired or replaced. Since our teeth and gums do change as we get older, our dentist may also need to change and replace the veneers to accommodate these natural changes in your smile.
Can dental veneers stain?
Veneers are made from porcelain, which is a stain-resistant material. Therefore, your veneers will remain beautiful for years!
