Porcelain VeneersEven the brightest smiles fade over the years, due to wear and tear, damage and stains. Veneers offer an excellent way to make over and brighten your smile if you don't like what you see in the mirror. Brookfield, WI, dentists Dr. Thomas Steinbach and Dr. Elizabeth Sievers offer veneers and other services and treatments that enhance your appearance.

Veneers hide flaws

Veneers cover up minor imperfections that can mar your smile. The restorations consist of a thin layer of porcelain that fits over the front of teeth. Each tooth-shaped porcelain shell is created in a dental laboratory using an impression of your mouth. Before you receive your veneers, your dentist must remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel to ensure that your restorations will fit correctly. In most cases, your dentist will only need to buff about half a millimeter of enamel, as each veneer is only about as thick as a fingernail.

You'll return to your Brookfield dentist's office when your veneers are ready. Your dentist will apply the veneers to your teeth and make any adjustments to the fit before permanently applying the veneers with dental cement. You'll return to the office in two weeks for a follow-up visit.

Porcelain veneers transform your smile

Veneers may be a good choice if you want to:

  • Say Goodbye to Stains: Veneers can whiten your entire smile or cover a single discolored tooth. If you're using veneers as a whitening solution, you'll choose the exact shade of white you prefer. Veneers are stain resistant and won't become dull or yellow if you drink coffee, tea or cola.
  • Forget About Imperfections: Would your smile be perfect if you didn't have that little chip? Veneers hide small flaws, such as chips, cracks and uneven tooth surfaces. If the veneer is used to conceal an imperfection, it will match the color of surrounding teeth.
  • Completely Change the Appearance of a Tooth: Veneers can change the shape of a crooked, twisted, pointed or oddly shaped tooth.
  • Eliminate Gaps: Slight spaces between teeth disappear instantly, thanks to porcelain veneers.
