When our dental team meets with a new cosmetic dentistry patient, we start talking to the person to determine exactly what kinds of aesthetic results he or she wants to achieve. The specific treatments that our Tinley Park cosmetic dentists recommend will depend on the changes the patient wants to make to his or her smile. Generally, however, veneers are a great option for cosmetic patients, because veneers can be used to achieve so many different results!
Dental veneers are simply thin porcelain restorations that are designed to improve the appearance of your smile. Once your veneers are crafted, our dental team will attach them the visible surfaces of your teeth.
Because dental veneers are made to totally cover the natural tooth, you can use these restorations to improve your smile in a number of ways. For example…
· Dental veneers can make your smile look straighter without the need for long-term braces.
· Your dental veneer can also be made to be a little bit wider or longer than your natural tooth, so that you no longer have spaces between your teeth.
· The porcelain that we use to make veneers can be shaded to enhance the appearance of your smile. If you want to make one tooth, or your entire smile, brighter and whiter, dental veneers may be right for you!
· In the same vein, dental veneers can cover dental damage, and textural irregularities on the surface of the tooth.
If you have been thinking about pursuing cosmetic dentistry, and you want to figure out whether porcelain veneers may be right for you, please take a look at the veneer’s page on our website.
