If you’re thinking about getting porcelain veneers from Dr. Paul Fischl or Dr. Marie Bradley Fischl in Evanston, there are a few things you may want to know before you schedule your appointment. Read on, and get all the details!

1. You Need A Healthy Mouth To Get Veneers

You must not have any decayed teeth, gum disease, or serious orthodontic issues to get veneers. If you do have oral health problems, you’ll need to get the appropriate treatments at Fischl Dental Associates to treat them before you can get veneers.

2. Veneers Are Not Removable Or Reversible

Veneers require the removal of a thin layer of enamel from your teeth, and this process is irreversible. They should never be removed after placement. If you ever break, damage, or dislodge a veneer, you’ll need to see Fischl Dental Associates to have it replaced or repaired. 

3. Veneers Don’t Weaken Your Teeth

Even though some of your natural enamel is removed, the strong porcelain of the veneers will bond tightly with your remaining tooth structure, so your teeth will be just as strong as it was before you got veneers.

4. Veneers Can Treat Almost Any Cosmetic Issue

With veneers, you can treat gaps in your smile, misshapen teeth, stained teeth, slightly crooked or crowded teeth, and stained teeth, as well as a number of other cosmetic dental issues. This treatment is extremely versatile.

5. Porcelain Veneers Will Never Become Stained

Porcelain, unlike the natural enamel of your teeth, is not porous. This means it won’t become stained by beverages like coffee or tea, and it will look bright and brilliant for years to come. However, proper oral care is still essential for keeping your smile bright. 

6. It Takes 2 Appointments Over 2-3 Weeks To Get Veneers

At your first appointment, your teeth will be trimmed and measured for veneers, and you’ll get a set of temporary veneers before you’re sent home. 

A lab will build your permanent veneers and send them to Fischl Dental Associates in 2-3 weeks. Then, you’ll come in to have your veneers attached to your teeth, completing your treatment. 

7. You Don’t Need Veneers On All Of Your Teeth

In fact, veneers are most often only used on the upper 4 and lower 4 front teeth, since these are the most visible when you smile. The number of veneers you need will depend on the specifics of your case.

8. There’s No Downtime After Your Treatment 

Veneer treatment is non-invasive. After each appointment, you can get back to your day-to-day activities right away. This makes it easier to find time in your schedule to get cosmetic dentistry in Evanston.
