Do you instinctively not show your teeth when you smile because you feel self-conscious about a minor cosmetic problem? Whether you have a permanently stained tooth, a chip or crack in a tooth, or a wider than usual gap between two teeth, these problems are easy to correct with dental veneers. This simple and affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure can give you the smile you have always wanted after just two visits.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers in West Salem, WI are thin pieces of ceramic material that fit over the front of a tooth. Dr. Allen and his dental team take extra care to match the shade of the veneer as closely as possible to the natural shade of your teeth. No one will know you have had a cosmetic dentistry service performed unless you choose to tell them.
What to Expect When Receiving Dental Veneers
Your initial consultation at Allen Dental is an opportunity to discuss your goals with cosmetic dentistry and to learn more about this specific procedure. During your next appointment, Dr. Allen removes up to one-eight of a millimeter of tooth enamel from the tooth receiving the veneer. Removing a small amount of tooth enamel is necessary to reduce bulk and prevent your treated tooth from protruding further than the rest.
Next, Dr. Allen applies dental sealant to the back of the veneer and to the front of your tooth. He then shines a curing light on your tooth to bond the dental veneer permanently. You will need to take care not to stain the veneer by avoiding coffee, tea, and dark-colored wine as much as possible once Dr. Allen finishes the procedure.
