Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of your smile in as little as two dental visits. During your consultation at our Brookfield, WI office, Dr. Thomas Tang will assess your needs and cosmetic goals. If porcelain veneers are a good option for you, Dr. Tang will work at our dental lab to create custom veneers that match the natural look of your existing teeth.
One of the great benefits of porcelain veneers is that they can be used to mask minor overcrowding or fill in gaps between the teeth. Learn more about how porcelain veneers can be used as an instant orthodontics treatment for qualified candidates.
How Are Veneers Used as Instant Orthodontics?
Veneers are placed over the front facing teeth to mask cosmetic flaws, including some minor misalignment problems. Porcelain veneers can make the teeth appear more even and straight by addressing issues such as:
- Gapped teeth
- Minor overcrowding or overlap
- A twisted or protruding tooth
- Misshaped or uneven teeth
Each individual veneer is crafted to create the illusion of straight and symmetrical teeth. They can be customized by size, shape, and color. In addition, the natural teeth are filed down so the veneers sit flush with one another.
A Beautiful Smile in Two Weeks
Dr. Tang will prepare your tooth by removing a small amount of enamel. This makes room for the veneer and provides a better surface for dental bonding agents.
Dr. Tang will place a temporary veneer on your tooth while a permanent veneer is manufactured.
Upon your return visit, about two weeks later, Dr. Tang will remove your temporary veneer and place your permanent veneer. In as few as two visits, you will enjoy the results of a completely transformed smile.
Benefit of Veneers
Patients who are in good oral health can benefit from porcelain veneers if they have:
- Gaps between teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Small teeth
Beyond having a quick turnaround time, porcelain veneers offer several benefits over cosmetic treatment alternatives. These advantages include:
- A natural appearance: Porcelain closely matches the natural appearance of teeth. Unlike other materials, porcelain reflects light similarly to natural teeth. Once your veneer is in place, Dr. Tang can make minor changes to its shape to blend with the appearance of adjacent teeth.
- Long lasting: Porcelain veneers can last upwards of 15 years.
