What issues do veneers repair? 
Veneers fit onto the surface of the tooth to cover its abnormalities. A dental laboratory creates these porcelain restorations specifically for your mouth based on an impression of your teeth taken by your dentist. Veneers repair various issues with your teeth, including:

  • overcrowded teeth
  • under crowded teeth
  • gaps
  • slight misalignments
  • yellowed or discolored teeth
  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth

Are dental veneers right for me? 
Dental veneers benefit most people who wish to improve their smile. However, patients should have a great at-home oral care routine to keep their veneers clean and free of decay. In most cases, brushing twice daily and flossing at least once is enough to keep your veneers healthy between twice yearly dental examinations and cleanings. Potential patients should also be aware that veneers are a permanent and irreversible dental procedure.

The Veneers Process in West Allis, WI 
Dental veneers usually require two dental appointments to complete from start to finish. The first appointment will involve preparing the teeth to receive the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from their surfaces. After the preparation, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth for the dental laboratory to use as a guide while designing and creating your veneers. Your second appointment will involve carefully placing each veneer onto the teeth.
