Aesthetic dental issues
You have healthy teeth, but there are also some minor flaws that really bother you. A small gap, a slightly turned tooth, or a significant discoloration won't affect oral function, but they will likely make you feel self-conscious.
Fortunately, the dentists here at our Waunakee office offer a solution. Customized porcelain veneers, also known as dental laminates, cover annoying flaws, stains, mild crookedness, and more without extensive, lengthy procedures.
Made from fine ceramic, veneers are thin, tooth-colored and custom-shaped to disguise smile detractors such as:
- Odd shape and length
- Minor crowding
- Tooth rotations
The veneer process
Veneer placement involves taking oral impressions that allow the dental lab to sculpt your veneers in a completely accurate fashion. As a part of this initial process, Dr. Karls removes a thin portion of enamel from each tooth so that your smile can easily accommodate the laminates.
As you wait for your permanent veneers, you'll wear realistic temporaries. After a week or so, you will return to Karls Family Dentistry for a bonding of your permanent veneers.
After removing the temporary veneers, the dentist applies an etching solution and tooth-colored cement. Following this, he puts the veneers in place. A special light activates a chemical in the cement, strengthening the bond between the veneer and tooth surface. That completes the process, and you're ready to enjoy your new smile!
Here at Karls Family Dentistry, you'll enjoy kind, compassionate, and state-of-the-art care. To start your veneer treatment, contact our Waunakee office team for an appointment: (608) 849-4100.
