What Are Veneers & How Do You Care For Them?, Onalaska, Wisconsin

When it comes to improving the function and beauty of your smile, there are several restorative options available. From teeth whitening to dental implants and veneers, what works best for you will depend on your unique needs. Here, the expert cosmetic dentists at the Dental Clinic of Onalaska in the Coulee Region of Wisconsin will explain everything you need to know about veneers.

Veneers are constructed from thin pieces of porcelain. They are adhered over the teeth, lending a natural appearance. In addition to closely resembling tooth enamel, they also are similar in terms of strength and function. Veneers are often used to bridge small gaps in the teeth, correct misalignments, or straighten the smile. They also work well to cover up issues like discoloration, tooth chips, and fractures.

This procedure is simple, quick, and minimally invasive. However, since it is considered a permanent restoration, patients should be completely confident in their decision to undergo the procedure.

To avoid issues down the road, those with veneers need to take special care to brush and floss daily. To ensure the veneers remain in excellent shape, patients should visit their dentists regularly for routine cleanings and checkups.
