The dentists in Brookfield, WI, know their patients want to have better-looking smiles, but sometimes the cost can be too high. For that veneersreason Drs. Charles Steinbach, Thomas Steinbach, and Elizabeth Sievers suggest dental veneers.

What are veneers?

Veneers are used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're damaged. They deal with stained or discolored teeth that can be due to poor hygiene, drinking coffee and tea, smoking, chewing tobacco, or even antibiotics containing tetracycline. They also fix mishappened teeth, which include: crooked, worn or chipped teeth, irregularly shaped teeth, uneven surfaces, and uneven spacing, like overcrowdedness.

What is the process for veneers?

When you come into the Brookfield office, your doctor will examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. If he or she decides they are, then any underlying issues, like cavities, will need to be resolved first. A custom set of veneers are then created based on a model of your teeth that your doctor sent to a lab.

When your veneers finally arrive, your dentist will remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth then cement the veneers. After your dentist removes enamel off the surface of your teeth, an irreversible process, you won't feel like your teeth are protruding. On the contrary, they will feel smooth, even and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth.

Getting veneers is a simple procedure. You don't need very much anesthesia. Also, veneers have an impressive color stability which makes them highly resistant to staining. So you'll be able to sip your tea or coffee without any worries.

Make sure you brush twice a day and floss at least once before bed to ensure proper care of veneers. It's important to prevent the buildup of plaque, which may result in cavities and other serious issues.
