APPLETON, WI, August 21, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Teeth that are badly stained, shaped or crooked may be significantly improved by the placement of a veneer on the surface of the affected teeth. Veneers are used for both aesthetic purposes and when front teeth are damaged, chipped or broken. Dr. Joseph Schouten, dentist in Appleton, can create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth with the dental veneer procedure.
"The translucent ceramic quality of today's veneers provides a more natural look than what has been available previously. Regardless of the cause of your damaged teeth or faded smile, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues. I invite all of my patients to visit my office for improved care and smiles today," said Dr. Schouten, family dentist in Appleton.
With age and time, the thin tough outer surface of teeth, called enamel, can wear and look dulled, stained or discolored. This can occur naturally with time, or can be caused by certain medications or excessive fluoride. However, this change in the appearance of teeth is often due to habits such as tooth grinding, poor oral hygiene, and the consumption of carbonated and sugary soft drinks. Tea, coffee, certain fruits and smoking can all contribute to the staining of teeth as well.
Not only do veneers rejuvenate a person's smile, but they can also serve a protective, functional role. Dental veneers provide a protective cover for damaged teeth in a similar manner that dental crowns can protect damaged teeth. The advantage over crowns is that veneers are wafer thin and very little tooth structure is removed. Veneers can also help with tooth sensitivity where the enamel has worn away.
