Are you ready to feel more confident in your smile?
If you are dealing with severe internal dental stains or slightly crooked teeth, you may be wondering if there is a cosmetic option out there that can improve the overall appearance of your smile. Good news: there is! Your Chicago, IL, dentist, also serving Lincoln Park, Dr. Allen Momongan has helped countless patients get new and improved smiles with the help of dental veneers. Here’s what you should know about this popular cosmetic treatment:
Veneers are very thin porcelain restorations that are adhered to the front surface of one or more teeth to alter and enhance the shape, size, or color of your smile. While most people get a full set of veneers, this restoration can also be placed on a single flawed tooth.
Just like fake fingernails can cosmetically improve the appearance of your nails and your hands, veneers can do the same for a single tooth or your whole smile. After all, having a beautiful smile can certainly provide some serious aesthetic benefits and improve your self-confidence. You may be ideal for veneers if you want to hide:
- Stains and discolorations
- Chips, cracks, fractures, and breaks
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen or asymmetrical teeth
- Excessively worn teeth
- Crooked or twisted teeth
If there is a cosmetic flaw that you want to hide then chances are good that dental veneers can help.
Candidates for Dental Veneers
If you want a smile that is whiter, straighter, or more symmetrical then you could be a good candidate for veneers. Before getting veneers, your Chicago, IL, dentist, also serving Lincoln Park, will need to examine your smile to determine two things: that your smile is healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry, and that the problems you want to treat can be addressed with dental veneers.
It’s also important to know that in order to get veneers we will need to prep the teeth first by shaving off a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. While this shouldn’t cause any discomfort, removing enamel is permanent. This means that your veneers are a lifelong restoration and can’t be reversed.
