Who is a Candidate for Veneers
If you are someone who has teeth that are chipped, stained, or unevenly spaced front teeth, you are likely a candidate to receive veneers. Veneers are shells that are attached to the front of teeth in order to improve their appearance.
One of the main reasons patients opt for veneers is aesthetics since they enhance the appearance of damaged or discolored teeth. Veneers are also recommended for their ability to brighten your smile and correct a range of cosmetic-related occurrences. Patients who have severe discoloration, chipped or broken teeth, gaps, smaller teeth, and misshapen teeth stand to benefit from veneer treatment. Although these appliances can last for a long time, it’s advisable to schedule regular visits to the dentist to ensure everything is in tiptop condition.
If you visit our team at Chicago Dental Esthetics, we can provide you with a brighter, perfect smile in a short amount of time. In the case that you have only one broken or chipped tooth, then you may only need to get one veneer. With multiple teeth that are missing or broken, your veneers will cover six to eight teeth in order to provide a more symmetrical and even smile. Once your teeth are treated with veneers they may improve your tooth’s color, shape, size, and length.
Veneers Require Your Natural Teeth To Be Shaped
Getting veneers applied will require our dentists to remove a portion of your tooth structure so that the veneer may replace it and be placed sufficiently. In case you have composite resin dental veneers our dentist will scrape the surface of your tooth before applying a layer of composite resin. In case you need many layers, they will be added as needed to provide your perfect smile. To finish, the dentist will cure the composite resin material with an ultraviolet light.
If you choose porcelain veneers, they will require significant amounts of tooth structure to be removed in order to properly place them. Our dentist will have to grind down the structure of your tooth including your enamel. For this reason, the dentist will use local anesthetics so you do not feel any pain or discomfort during your procedure.
The amount of tooth structure that we may reduce from each tooth will depend on your individual concerns and the number of your teeth involved. Once your teeth have been prepped our dentist can create a mold that will be sent to a dental lab. Once your veneers are ready, you can come back to our office and our dentist will place your new veneers.
Veneers Will Encase Your Teeth Flawlessly
Dental veneers cover your teeth and improve their appearance and structure. Veneers attach to your natural teeth which will serve as the base. Veneers are most commonly made of porcelain or composite resin. Depending on the material used, your treatment will differ. Porcelain veneers can encase your teeth without the need for extensive and invasive procedures.
