Carol Stream, IL smiles are gorgeous with dental veneers
When you are in a public place, notice the smiles around you. Many people have perfectly nice teeth. Other smiles are noticeably attractive. The color, shape, and placement of every visible tooth are ideal. In many cases, those standout smiles have the advantage of dental veneers. Dr. Evelyn Maggos and her team at Park Dental Care in Carol Stream, IL enjoy providing this service because they see the dramatic difference it makes in the patient’s appearance and self-confidence.
When Carol Stream, IL dentists recommend dental veneers
A veneer is a covering of luminous porcelain. It is meticulously designed and fabricated to fit over the front of a tooth, wrapping slightly over the bottom and sides.
Dr. Evelyn or Dr. Britly may suggest veneers:
- For misaligned teeth – get a straight look without wearing braces
- As an uneven teeth solution, for symmetrical spacing
- To improve irregularly shaped teeth – those that appear too short, are worn down or have an unusual shape or size
- To close spaces between gapped teeth
- To mask enamel flaws such as chips and cracks
- To hide stubborn discoloration or brighten all the “smile teeth”
Benefits of dental veneers
After an initial consultation to determine if this is the most appropriate treatment to achieve your smile enhancement goals, the procedure normally requires just two visits.
At first, a tiny amount of enamel is removed, and teeth are shaped if necessary. Impressions are taken, and you decide on shading. Temporary composite veneers may be provided. Impressions and instructions go to a professional dental laboratory where a ceramist handcrafts each veneer to the doctor’s exacting standards.
When you return in about two weeks, temporary veneers are removed, and an etching solution is applied to ensure a strong bond. Final veneers are fitted, then cemented in place for a transformed smile.
Veneer treatment is highly customizable. You may have a single tooth treated, or the four, six, or eight uppers that show when you speak or smile. Veneers can be applied to lower teeth, too.
The porcelain material is hard and stain resistant. With good oral hygiene and some common sense, veneers can last many years. Find out if dental veneers are right for you. Call 630-556-8880 to book a cosmetic dentistry consultation at Park Dental Care in Carol Stream, IL.
