At All Kind Smiles, porcelain veneers are a prevalent cosmetic dentistry procedure. Veneers can be used to conceal discolored, stained, or crooked teeth, giving you a stunning, natural-looking smile!

Are you looking for porcelain veneers in West Allis? All Kind Smiles explains the basics of veneers so you can decide if they’re good for you.

What Are Veneers – How Do They Work?

Veneers are wafer-thin shells made of porcelain or other high-quality ceramic composite material. They are custom-made to fit over your natural teeth and conceal flaws, including dental gaps, stains, crooked teeth, and more. They adhere to your teeth permanently with adhesive cement, giving you a stunning, long-lasting smile.

Advantages of Veneers

Veneers from All Kind Smiles have a lot of advantages. Here are a few examples:

  • Natural-looking indistinguishable teeth – The best part about veneers is they have been specifically designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, giving you a stunning, all-natural grin.
  • Strengthen the existing teeth – Porcelain veneers adhere to weak teeth and give additional support and structure, preventing chipping and cracking.
  • No special maintenance is required – Simply brush and floss as usual, and visit All Kind Smiles every six months for an oral hygiene appointment. It’s done!
  • Stain and yellowing resistance — High-quality veneers are stain-resistant. However, because the natural teeth surrounding your veneers are still susceptible to discoloration, it is essential to practice basic oral hygiene.

The Procedure for Placing Veneers

The procedure for placing veneers is straightforward. Dr. Fakler will first perform a comprehensive evaluation of your mouth to see if you are eligible for veneers. If not, a procedure like dental bonding or a crown may be a better option.

When veneers are the best option for you, Dr. Fakler will start by removing a thin layer of enamel from each tooth to be treated. This guarantees that the veneers adhere well to the teeth and blend in with the existing tooth structure.

Dr. Fakler will then produce moulds of your teeth using modern casting and imaging procedures. These are submitted to an outside facility, which will create your veneers. This procedure usually takes two to three weeks. While waiting for your personalized veneers to be completed, you will be fitted with temporary veneers.

You will return for your second appointment once Dr. Fakler has received your veneers. He’ll double-check the size, color, and fit of your veneers to make sure they’re correct. Your veneers will be permanently put into place with a dental adhesive after a complete tooth cleaning.

That’s all! Treatment is minimally invasive and usually only requires two appointments. It’s that simple to achieve the ideal smile.

Veneers’ Aftercare

After the veneers bond to your teeth, you are not required to do anything specific to protect them. The procedure is entirely painless, and your veneers will immediately develop a strong bond with your teeth. Once your appointment with Dr. Fakler or Dr. Meinerz is finished, you can resume your regular routine and diet.

Flossing once a day and brushing for two minutes twice a day helps keep your veneers in good shape. Regular six-month cleanings and dental exams at All Kind Smiles are also recommended so that Dr. Fakler or Dr. Meinerz may check on your veneers and oral health.

It is also a great idea to avoid eating hard food with your veneers, such as almonds or popcorn. Instead, chew these meals using your molars to protect your veneers from wear and strain.

Also, chewing anything that isn’t food is a bad idea. Pens, pencils, and fingernails are examples of such items. It will also be the wrong way to use your teeth to help rip tape or open parcels. Both of these behaviors have the potential to harm your new smile.

Are Veneers a Long-Term Solution?

Yes. This is because veneers necessitate the removal of a small layer of enamel from your teeth. To ensure that the veneers do not impact your bite, this enamel must be removed. Exposing fresh enamel also aids in the bonding of the veneer shells to the surface of your teeth.

This, however, is an irreversible process. In addition, your underlying teeth would be fragile and more susceptible to decay and damage if you had your veneers removed.

Because of this, veneers are regarded as a long-term solution. You’ll need to have one of your veneers replaced if it fails, breaks, or wears out. If you don’t, you’re putting yourself at risk for oral health problems.

If you’re not keen on the concept of a permanent, irreversible procedure, dental bonding could be a better solution. Bonding can be utilized to repair many of the same cosmetic issues as veneers without removing any enamel permanently.

When determining whether cosmetic dentistry treatment is suitable for you, you should absolutely talk to Dr. Fakler or Dr. Meinerz about this. For a consultation, please contact us right away.

Is it necessary for me to have veneers on all of my teeth?

Veneers are often only used on the front (anterior) teeth, but they can be used on both the upper and lower teeth according to the situation. However, they are not ideal for repairing molars and premolars located in the back of the mouth.

The exact amount of veneers you’ll require is determined by your circumstance. For example, if you like how your smile appears, but have a chip in one of your front teeth, you might need one veneer.

When you have significant gaps between your front teeth or misplaced bottom teeth, four or more veneers may be required. Following your cosmetic consultation at All Kind Smiles, Dr. Meinerz and Dr. Krueger will give you a personalized recommendation.
