A healthy shiny smile goes a long way. But many of us aren’t completely satisfied with how we look when we open our mouth.
There are many things that can happen to our smile with time and age. After all, our teeth get plenty of wear every day. With today’s dentistry techniques and technology, our team at Park Ridge Dental Associates can restore chipped, cracked, broken, or discolored teeth … and make your smile look better than ever!
In this blog, we’ll highlight veneers and how they can disguise the flaws you’d prefer to keep to yourself.
Veneers are extremely thin – yet strong – tooth-colored shells that go on the front surface of your teeth. They can alter the shape of your tooth as well as its color. Most veneers are made of composite resin and porcelain. Here are some of the benefits that come with using them to help your smile stand out:
- Lighten and brighten teeth that have been stained by coffee, tea, red wine, or even tetracycline (an antibiotic).
- Hide gaps, chips, and crooked teeth.
- Revive worn out crowns and bridgework.
It usually takes at least two visits to our office to apply porcelain veneers and one visit for composite resin veneers. Whichever you choose, they are made by a dental technician and bonded to your teeth by your dentist. Both types of veneers are beautiful but have their own unique benefits … composite veneers can be removed and replaced at any point while porcelain veneers are very strong and resistant to chipping and staining.
Since we truly care about your oral health just as much as your satisfaction with your appearance, we will first make sure you’re a suitable candidate for veneers. Some of the things we consider are overall physical health, oral hygiene habits, and whether you have enough tooth enamel for the veneer to bond to.
