Solving Your Cosmetic Issues With Dental Veneers

Dental veneers provide versatile and long-lasting solutions for your smile. These thin pieces of porcelain are placed on the front side of your teeth, acting much like a fingernail does!

There are several cosmetic and even structural problems we can fix with dental veneers, including:

  • Chipped Teeth – A chipped tooth may not affect the function of your smile, but it will rob it of its luster and natural beauty. While tooth bonding is a faster fix, it is not always the most durable. Porcelain veneers can correct the chip, restore the look of your smile, prevent further breaking, and last for years to come due to their strength.
  • Cracked Teeth – Mildly to moderately cracked teeth can be treated with dental veneers. Dr. Wilhelm will bond the veneer to the front of your tooth and conceal the flaw. This will also stabilize the tooth and prevent the crack from progressing to a larger, more dangerous break.
  • Oddly Shaped Teeth – Dr. Wilhelm can mold veneers into any shape you want to disguise misshapen teeth. This makes them the ideal treatment for teeth that don’t fit in with their neighbors. Dr. Wilhelm will cover the tooth to give you a natural-looking smile you can be proud of.
  • Gaps – Why shift the position of all of your teeth just to close a small gap? Orthodontic treatments will rearrange your entire smile, while a veneer will quickly close the gap and leave the rest of your teeth right where they should be.

Receiving Your New Beautiful Veneers

Dr. Wilhelm will first discuss your situation with you to determine if dental veneers are the best treatment.
If you are a good candidate, Dr. Wilhelm will begin by preparing your tooth for the veneer. He will remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth (or teeth) in order to:

  • Make room in your smile for the veneer to fit seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. Without this enamel removal, your veneer will stick out more than your other teeth.
  • Prepare the surface of your tooth to bond well with your new veneer.

Once the prep work is done, Dr. Wilhelm will take a dental impression. This impression will be used to custom make your new dental veneer. We’ll match the veneer precisely to the color of your other teeth.
Because teeth whitening can’t lighten restorations like veneers, we may recommend getting your teeth whitened before you have your veneers placed.
