If you’re unhappy with your smile and you’re considering cosmetic dentistry in Elm Grove, veneers are a versatile option that can enhance the shape and color of your teeth. Veneers have many unique benefits when compared to other treatments, and we’re here to give you all the information you need to help you decide whether this procedure is right for you. Here are the top 5 benefits of porcelain veneers:

1. Veneers Are Minimally-Invasive

The veneer placement process only requires the removal of a very thin (usually 0.5mm or less) layer of enamel from each tooth that is receiving a veneer. This enamel is removed to make sure that your veneers fit perfectly. Your mouth will be numbed before the process begins, and treatment doesn’t hurt a bit. Your teeth may be a little bit sensitive afterward, but this goes away quickly. 

Most patients do not need to be sedated during this process, but we also can offer sedation dentistry services during your appointment if you’re nervous, or think you would feel more comfortable. 

2. Veneers Require No Special Care

To care for your veneers, just brush and floss normally, and see Dr. Krueger or Dr. Meinerz for a regular 6-month checkup. That’s it!

To maximize the lifespan of your veneers, you should also avoid chewing or biting hard foods or non-food objects with your veneers. You should also not use your teeth as tools to do things like open bags or packages. If you grind your teeth, a nightguard can prevent damage to your veneers from clenching and grinding. Follow these tips, and your veneers will look great for years.

3. Veneers Last Longer Than Dental Bonding 

Dental bonding uses resin to reshape your teeth. It’s inexpensive and effective, but usually does not last as long as veneers. Bonding usually has a maximum lifespan of about 10 years, while veneers can easily last 15+ years with proper care. Veneers are also completely stain-resistant, so they will look bright and beautiful long after treatment.

4. Veneers Are Versatile And Can Restore Almost Any Cosmetic Flaw

If you have gaps in your smile, small or misshapen teeth, a tooth with a minor chip, or serious stains that can’t be treated with teeth whitening, veneers can help with all of these issues and more. Veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments available. 

5. Veneers Can Be Placed In Just 2 Short Appointments

It only takes 2 short, 1-2 hour appointments over a period of about 2-3 weeks to have your veneers made and placed. In less than a month, you can completely restore your smile and your confidence.
