Green Bay, WI
Here at Bay Lakes Center for Complex Dentistry, many of our patients choose veneers. Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are colored to match your teeth. Once they are matched to your dental impressions, the veneers are cemented to the front surface of your natural teeth to hide or mask physical and aesthetic issues.
This style of implants is permanent, so some serious thought will need to be undergone before you decide whether or not to go through with the process. Here at our dental clinic, we have been utilizing this form of implants for many years, so we are experts on the procedure. We ensure that all of our customers feel comfortable and are well educated in the procedure before we proceed.
Some patients use veneers to quickly and easily whiten a dull smile. They can cover the signs of decay that come from a lifetime of smoking, coffee drinking, or even high consumption of highly pigmented foods. This can turn once white teeth a shade of yellow or brown, and this is what many patients seek to change when they come into the clinic inquiring about veneers or similar procedures. Other reasons could be minor cosmetic problems, such as slightly crooked or gapped teeth. Veneers can also work to replace damaged enamel; our poor eating habits or dental neglect can also lead to the decay of enamel, which protects our teeth.
When veneers are placed, we will need to change the structure of your discolored, damaged, or crooked teeth to properly place them. This is why they are referred to as a permanent fix. This is why it is important to assess their suitability for your dental concerns. They may also cause greater sensitivity for your teeth, so you will feel the hot and cold more so in your teeth than you had before. That being said, this is not so for all patients and only occurs in some cases.
Veneers may be used to simply fix one single tooth or multiple teeth on the upper arch, to create what is referred to as the “Hollywood smile.” They are a form of prosthetics that can only be prescribed and fitted by a cosmetic dentist. In recent decades we have seen a rise in the number of veneers being fitted at our clinic, as well as in clinics throughout the world.
Although veneers can mend many of the cosmetic and physical dental problems that many people face, it is important to weigh the pros and cons to know if this is the right choice for you. You can make an appointment with us at the clinic to discuss with one of our amazing team members whether this is the best course of action to take for you, or whether there is a more suited solution for you.
