The hallmarks of a healthy and beautiful smile typically include white, perfectly shaped, and correctly aligned teeth. But what if you lack one or all of these qualities? Fortunately, you can have all those qualities and more with dental veneers. Veneers are basically very durable, thin shells that can cover your teeth’s front area to conceal a variety of imperfections.
At Lynch Dental Center in River Forest, IL, your dentists, Drs. John Lynch, Sheila Lynch, and Frances Lynch offer porcelain veneers that closely mimic the natural sheen and look of real teeth to give patients gorgeous and authentic-looking smiles.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Veneers can offer a wide array of benefits, which makes it one of the most popular and versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments available today. You can even use them with other cosmetic procedures such as in a smile makeover for example. Specifically, veneers can offer the following benefits:
- Conceal noticeable discoloration, which includes intrinsic stains
- Mask tiny chips and cracks
- Hide minor misalignment
- Close slight gaps or spaces between your teeth
- Enhance the look of unusually shaped, worn, or small teeth
Can I Get Dental Veneers?
To figure out if you’re an ideal candidate for dental veneers, your dentist at Lynch Dental Center in River Forest, IL, will assess the condition of your teeth and discuss how veneers can help your smile. Take note though that if you have severely uneven or crooked teeth, your dentist might suggest orthodontic treatment before you can get dental veneers.
The Dental Veneers Procedure
After your initial consultation and fitting, you’ll come back to the clinic and your dentist will examine the color, shape, and fit of your custom-made dental veneers. This is to ensure that they fit correctly and look perfect. Your dentist will then give your teeth a thorough cleaning to prevent bacteria from being trapped in between the veneers and your real teeth and then causing decay.
Next, the surface of your teeth will be resurfaced using a grinding device to make them a bit rougher so that the veneers will stick better. The veneers will then be attached to your teeth using dental cement and “baked” under ultraviolet light to speed up the drying process. You now have a smile that you can truly be proud of.
