Why Are Porcelain Veneers so Appealing?
There was a time when only the rich and famous could afford cosmetic dental treatments like dental veneers. Fortunately for us, times have certainly changed. Dental technology and updated materials mean that teeth veneers are available to anyone so that even budget-friendly patients can realistically consider fixing a minor or significant smile flaw.
Porcelain veneers can do precisely that—they can transform your smile into something that you won't stop loving. They can transform yellow or badly stained teeth into flawless pearly whites, misaligned or oddly shaped teeth to straight teeth with the perfect length, and more.
Everyone deserves to have a smile they can’t stop showing off.
What Exactly Is a Dental Veneer?
Porcelain veneers are an extremely thin, translucent, “shell” that adheres to the front surface of your tooth. They mask or cover any smile flaw or imperfection, which allows Dr. Monteagudo to completely design how your new tooth surface looks.
The dental material (usually porcelain or resin) mimics the natural translucency of enamel, and we match the tooth-color to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. If you have uneven or oddly-sized front teeth, for example, we can adhere two veneers of the same shape and size to round out your smile with balance and symmetry.
What Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Porcelain veneers are perfect for treating a broad spectrum of smile flaws, from chipped teeth to oddly shaped teeth, and more. Your Milwaukee dentist can determine if you are a good candidate for enhancing your smile through porcelain veneers.
Common smile problems we can fix with dental veneers include:
- Discolored or yellow teeth
- Too small teeth
- Worn or eroded teeth
- Tooth misalignment
- Gaps and spaces between teeth
- Chipped, fractured, or cracked teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth

What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?
Besides immediately enhancing and improving your smile, porcelain veneers can also benefit patients in the following ways:
- By bonding to the surface to your tooth, they can provide added structure and longevity
- Dr. Monteagudo will only have to remove a small portion of the tooth, so they preserve a lot of your natural tooth structure
- Dental veneers are incredibly easy to clean and maintain
- Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, so they don’t stain very easily.
How Permanent Are Tooth Veneers?
Since the procedure requires Dr. Monteagudo to remove a small amount of your tooth to ensure a good fit, we consider dental veneers to be a permanent solution. However, like most dental restorations, porcelain veneers will not last forever and may need to be replaced after years.
At WisconsinSmiles, we can provide aftercare tips to ensure that all our patients can increase the lifespan of their dental restoration investment. During your initial veneer evaluation with your Milwaukee cosmetic dentist, we will go over all the benefits of porcelain veneers, and any cons that all patients need to understand consider, and if this dental procedure fits within your lifestyle, smile goals, and budget. This is a great time to bring up any questions or concerns you may have, or ask about any alternatives.

To provide our patients with the best treatment option for their individual smile situation, Dr. Monteagudo offers a variety of porcelain veneers.

With over 1,000,000 happy smiles created, MAC veneers have become an exciting new option for many of our patients. Because not everyone is a candidate for porcelain veneers, Dr. Monteagudo will work closely with you to decide if they are right for you and, if so, which veneer you should use.

Patient education is extremely important for us, and we want all our patients to feel comfortable and confident about their dental decisions.
How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?
The dental veneer process starts with Dr. Monteagudo custom-shaping the porcelain veneers to your specifications and sending them out to the dental lab for fabrication.
We begin by prepping your natural tooth to make sure that the veneer fits snugly, this often entails removing a small amount of the tooth. Our trusted dental lab will fabricate your veneers, and we will ensure that the shade blends right in with your smile. Once the dental lab completes the porcelain veneer, we will bond it to your tooth. After the veneer firmly adheres to your tooth, we will polish and ensure it fits perfectly with your smile.
Most people will never be able to tell you are wearing one!
Caring For Your Dental Veneers
While your porcelain veneer will eventually need to be replaced, with good maintenance, you can expect to enjoy it for many years. Caring for your porcelain veneers is as simple as brushing and flossing as you would with your natural teeth, and avoiding cracking your dental restoration by eating ice, hard candy, or chewing on pencils. Simple preventive care and treating your investment well goes a long way.
You can expect to enjoy your smile for many years.
