Written by Dr. Zaibak on Aug 7, 2012

One of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments available today is the dental veneer. Dental veneers can be used to correct a wide number of cosmetic problems and help patients achieve their ideal smiles.

So what can veneers do for you, and how do they work? Read on to learn more…

Our Tinley Park cosmetic dental office uses dental veneers to correct a number of dental problems including:

· Large gaps between teeth

· Dark or stained enamel

· Chipped or damaged teeth

· Poorly proportioned teeth

· Crooked, misaligned teeth

How can veneers correct all of these problems?

Veneers are made of porcelain, and they’re attached directly to existing teeth. This means that veneers, once attached to the teeth, cover all of the existing dental enamel. Consequently, thy can mask a number of very common problem dental problems.

Dental veneers are custom shaped and shaded to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and to complement your features. It is precisely because veneers are custom-shaped that they can be used to close gaps between teeth and make poorly proportioned teeth look more balanced. If, for example, you have large gaps between some of your teeth, your veneers can be sized to effectively close those gaps and give your smile a straight, seamless appearance.

The possibilities with dental veneers are endless; with veneers you can completely transform your smile in only two or three appointments.
