Correcting Length, Shape, Brightness, and Alignment of Teeth with Veneers
For patients with imbalanced, discolored and misaligned teeth, dental veneers may prove to be a worthwhile option. If you’ve been thinking about how you could enhance the look of your smile, while maintaining your overall oral health, Dr. James Fondriest of Lake Forest Dental Arts in Chicago, IL is ready to talk to you, about how to create a stellar smile with veneers.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are tooth-shaped jackets or shells, that are made of porcelain. Veneers are shaped and styled to appear like natural teeth, and are then bonded to the front surfaces of existing teeth. As they are individually made to match the style of your existing teeth, veneers offer the patient a natural appearance. They also help to cover cosmetic imperfections, while enhancing the brightness of your smile.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers offer an array of long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing benefits. Some of those benefits include:
- They offer a natural tooth appearance
- Quick Procedure
- Gum tissue tolerates the veneer better
Candidates for Veneers
Many individuals may wonder if they’re a candidate for veneers. Candidates for veneers are individuals with:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Teeth that are misaligned or crowded
- Discolored teeth
- Enough tooth enamel
- Have good overall oral health
How Veneers Can Correct Imperfections
Veneers can correct a variety of imperfections of the teeth. Some of those imperfections include:
- Lengthening: While teeth may appear short and flat due to grinding, veneers can lengthen the teeth, offering a more streamlined appearance.
- Reshaping: After the teeth have been examined, veneers are created and shaped to match other teeth.
- Brightening: Veneers can brighten a smile, due to their natural tooth-color appearance. Your dentist will examine your teeth and choose a veneer that is brighter, yet natural looking in color.
- Alignment: For teeth that are gapped, crooked or uneven, veneers can provide alignment, as their thin structures help to mask imperfections.
