It’s our goal at Oral Health Associates to provide all of our patients with the beautiful smile that they’ve always dreamed of. Through our efficient cosmetic dentistry services, we’re fully capable of accomplishing that, even if your smile has been worn down over the years. As your trusted Green Bay, WI cosmetic dentist, one such treatment that we offer to bring back the shine and shape of your smile is our application of porcelain veneers.
Dental veneers, also known as Porcelain veneers, are essentially a cover for the front of your teeth. They allow your original teeth to be reshaped into a more attractive appearance without having to replace your teeth. These porcelain veneers are thin, but incredibly durable, allowing them to hold up to the rigors of everyday life, including brushing and eating. Dental porcelain is translucent and tough, like tooth enamel, but as an added benefit, they don’t stain easily. You won’t have to worry about staining your veneers when you have a cup of coffee!
Veneers can fix a variety of dental problems including
If your tooth is structurally healthy but suffers from minor cosmetic imperfections, a veneer is the way to go. Unlike dental crowns, veneers won’t require the removal of much of the tooth’s natural structure. While a crown will encapsulate an entire tooth, requiring much of it to be shaved down, dental veneers are placed on the fronts of teeth, requiring only a very small portion of the tooth to be removed for the veneer to be applied.
The first step in getting veneers is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brian Koch, Dr. Glime, Dr. Adam Koch, or Dr. Wetzel. They will take the time to discuss your goals and ensure that porcelain veneers are the right fit for your smile. Our dentists in Green Bay may also take x-rays and initial impressions during this initial consultation as part of their evaluation.
After your initial evaluation, your cosmetic dentist will create an impression of your teeth. They will ready the surface of your teeth for your veneers by removing a small amount of enamel. This process ensures that the veneer will adhere to your teeth properly. Afterward, they will place temporary veneers while your custom-fitted porcelain veneers are being created by the lab.Our cosmetic dentists will also consult with full smile makeover patients on how white they want their new smile to appear For patients who are not undergoing a full smile makeover, our dentist will match the shade of porcelain to your other teeth to make sure your veneers naturally blend with the rest of your smile.
When your veneers are ready, our Green Bay dentists will remove your temporary veneers and adhere permanent dental veneers over your teeth. Our cosmetic dentists in Green Bay will also provide instructions on how to properly care for your new smile.
