Imperfections present on the front of the smile visible when you speak and laugh with others can make you extremely self-conscious about how you look to others. Over the years, problems can arise with the smile, including breakage, permanent staining, or gaps between the teeth. Restorations such as natural-looking veneers allow patients in the Winfield and Carol Stream, Illinois communities, to address these issues quickly and easily at Park Dental Care!
What are porcelain veneers?
Each veneer is created entirely of porcelain, designed to match the color and size of your natural teeth. We can create a perfect fit that is durable enough to last for years while restoring the smile’s appearance. Veneers are typically used in cases where the smile has been affected by staining, chips, or cracks on either front tooth. In addition, they can be used individually or as part of a full smile makeover.
How are they applied?
The first step in improving your smile with restorations such as veneers involves an initial examination to determine if you are a proper candidate for this treatment. During this time, we will discuss all aspects of how you want your smile to look. We will also take impressions of your teeth to create custom-fit veneers. You will not have any discomfort during this time since we use a topical anesthetic on the front surface of each tooth covered by the veneer.
Once crafted, you can return for placement and shaping of your new smile. We will ensure that the fit is snug but comfortable and that every aspect has been perfected before placing them permanently on your teeth. During this process, a temporary set may be used to protect your natural enamel from damage while waiting for permanent placement. You will enjoy a gorgeous smile that’s nothing short of amazing!
