The perfect cosmetic dental solution for patients who want to completely redesign their smile without orthodontics or invasive procedures is dental veneers in Brookfield, WI. Veneers are thin shells made from of porcelain or resin composite materials that are custom-made to cover the front side of your teeth. This procedure works by covering up unsightly stains or chips, while also hiding uneven teeth, worn down teeth, and/or abnormally spaced teeth.
Brookfield Dental Veneer Procedure
Receiving dental veneers in Brookfield is usually a multi-step process that involves at least three office visits to complete. During the initial consultation, Dr. Kuffel will perform a full examination and evaluate your teeth to ensure you are a candidate for veneers. On your next visit, Dr. Kuffel, our Brookfield dentist, will begin the process by removing approximately ½ millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface—this is roughly the same thickness of the veneer. Then, Dr. Kuffel will take an impression of your teeth, which is used to create the veneer.
Once the veneer is fabricated, it is ready to be bonded onto the tooth. As soon as Dr. Kuffel has determined the finished veneer’s shape and shade is correct, the veneer is ready to be bonded into place. However, before this happens, Dr. Kuffel will apply a gel to the teeth in order to create a rough surface that the veneer can bond to. He will then apply the bonding agent and place the veneer.
