Veneers offer the perfect solution to a variety of cosmetic dental problems. Dr. Todd Armstrong in Kenosha, WI, explains how you can veneerschange your smile with veneers.

What are veneers?

Veneers are designed to cover cosmetic issues that affect the fronts of your teeth. The thin, tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain are cemented to your teeth, reshaping them and concealing flaws. Veneers are available in a range of shades, which means your new restoration won't stand out when you smile.

Are veneers right for me?

Kenosha residents choose veneers to address multiple cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Shape: Veneers are an excellent option if you don't like the shape of a tooth or if one or more teeth are twisted or crooked.
  • Length: Grinding and general wear and tear can eventually shorten teeth. Adding a veneer is a simple way to make teeth appear longer.
  • Chips and Cracks: Chips and cracks, no matter how small, tend to be very noticeable when you talk, smile or laugh. Veneers cover those little imperfections flawlessly.
  • Spaces: Spaces between teeth can ruin the symmetry of your smile. Adding veneers is an excellent way to close small gaps.
  • Color Changes: The color of tooth can change if you've ever had a large filling or a root canal, or if you've taken an antibiotic or other medication that can darken teeth. Veneers conceal the discoloration and improve your appearance.
  • Whitening: Are your teeth not as white as you had hoped after whitening treatment? With veneers, there are no limits. You choose the degree of whiteness you prefer. Best of all, veneers are very resistant to staining from cigarettes, coffee, tea, cola and other foods and beverages.

How tough are veneers?

They may not be very thick, but veneers are designed to last for years. You'll want to avoid opening bottles or other objects with your teeth, but normal wear and tear won't affect your veneers. If you grind your teeth at night, Dr. Armstrong may recommend that you wear a nightguard to avoid damaging your veneers.
