The Benefits of Veneers

Dr. Skutak will perform a basic oral exam which will help to determine if you’re a candidate for treatment. Veneers look completely natural. The porcelain is shaped to match the dimensions of your natural teeth, they are virtually indistinguishable! Most patients cannot even feel the difference.

Veneers preserve tooth integrity and are easy to maintain. Dr. Skutak will prepare your teeth by carefully removing a sliver of enamel, making it easier to place the veneer. This leaves your natural tooth structure healthy and intact. There are no additional requirements for cleaning, either. The veneers can be brushed and flossed like regular teeth.

When the process is complete, you’ll walk out of our office with a confident, healthy smile.

Versatile Cosmetic Treatment

Common Problems Veneers Can Fix

Veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments used by dentists today. Because they are designed to cover up the entire front surface of the tooth, they can treat a wide variety of issues. 

They are commonly used to treat severely stained teeth that cannot be treated with teeth whitening. Some internal stains or external stains may be too deep to bleach away, and veneers are a great alternative to whitening.

Veneers also are used to fill up gaps in the smile, and to cover up misshapen or uneven teeth, providing you with a more even, natural, and beautiful smile. Your veneers will look and feel just like natural teeth.

Finally, veneers can be used to repair chipped teeth, in some cases. If the chip is minor and only affects the outer layer of the tooth, a veneer is a good option. However, if the chip is very deep or the tooth is cracked, it will need to be repaired with a dental crown, and root canal therapy may also be recommended to prevent the tooth from becoming infected.

Expected Lifespan & Durability

How Long Do Veneers Last?

For most patients, veneers last somewhere between 10-20 years. The porcelain used to build your veneers is extremely durable, and they will be attached tightly to your natural teeth using permanent dental cement, so they are unlikely to break, shift, or come loose for a long time. In fact, veneers are the longest-lasting cosmetic dentistry option available today, since they typically outlast alternatives like dental bonding.

To make sure your veneers are in good shape, it’s a good idea to see a Rothschild dentist like Dr. Skutak every six months. She will check on your natural teeth and your veneers, and make sure your smile looks great. And if she notices an issue with one or more of your veneers, you can get the treatment you need to preserve your smile right away. We serve clients in Schofield, Rothschild, Wassau, and Weston!

Caring for Your New Smile

Will Veneers Impact My Diet or Lifestyle?

No. Veneers are very easy to care for, and they are durable and stain-resistant. Beyond regular brushing and flossing and six-month visits to Skutak Dental, you won’t have to take any other special precautions to keep your new smile healthy and bright.

But while veneers don’t necessarily limit what you can eat or what you can do, there are a few things you may want to do to avoid prematurely damaging or dislodging them. Following these tips will keep your new smile looking great for years to come.

First, we recommend that you avoid biting into nuts, popcorn kernels, ice, and other hard foods with your veneers. Eventually, this could damage your veneers or your natural teeth. Use your rear molars to bite and chew these foods. They have a larger surface area and are better able to withstand biting and chewing very hard foods. 

You also should not use your teeth as tools. Your teeth are meant to chew and eat, not to rip open packages, tear tape, or for anything else. These habits could damage your veneers or teeth. Similarly, you also shouldn’t chew non-food objects like fingernails, pen caps, pencils, or anything else with your veneers.

Have Questions About Porcelain Veneers?

Check out these frequently asked questions.
What is the treatment process for veneers?

The treatment process for porcelain veneers begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Lisa M. Skutak at Skutak Dental. During this meeting, you'll discuss your smile goals and learn if veneers in Rothschild are the right option for you. Dr. Skutak will examine your oral health to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for the procedure.

Once you've decided to proceed with veneers, the next step is preparing your teeth. This process involves removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of your teeth to make room for the veneers. This is done to ensure the veneers fit perfectly and look natural. After the teeth are prepared, Dr. Skutak will take an impression of your teeth which will be used to create your custom veneers.

While your veneers are being crafted in a dental laboratory, you'll wear temporary veneers to protect your teeth. Once your custom veneers are ready, you'll return to Skutak Dental for the final placement. Dr. Skutak will carefully bond each veneer to the front of your teeth, ensuring they fit perfectly and blend seamlessly with your natural smile. The result is a beautiful, long-lasting smile that you'll be proud to show off.

Is the procedure painful?

The procedure for porcelain veneers is typically not painful. At Skutak Dental, we prioritize your comfort and strive to make every procedure as pain-free as possible. During the tooth preparation stage, Dr. Skutak will use local anesthesia to numb the area, ensuring you don't feel any discomfort.

However, after the anesthesia wears off, it's normal to experience some sensitivity or slight discomfort. This is temporary and should subside within a few days. If you have any concerns about pain or discomfort during or after the procedure, Dr. Skutak and her team are always available to address your concerns and provide solutions to ensure your comfort.

Can you whiten porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining, which means they don't change color the way natural teeth do. However, they cannot be whitened like natural teeth. The color of the veneers is determined during the fabrication process and is designed to match the color of your surrounding teeth for a natural look.

If you're considering veneers and want a whiter smile, it's recommended to have your teeth professionally whitened before the veneer process. This way, your veneers can be matched to your newly whitened teeth, giving you the bright, beautiful smile you desire.

Remember, it's essential to maintain good oral hygiene to keep your veneers looking their best. Regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings at Skutak Dental will help ensure your veneers and natural teeth stay healthy and beautiful.

While veneers are stain-resistant, they're not stain-proof. Certain foods, drinks, and habits like smoking can stain your veneers over time. To maintain the color of your veneers, try to avoid these staining agents and maintain regular dental check-ups and cleanings.
