If you have spaces between your teeth, there are ways for you to improve the appearance of your smile without undergoing orthodontic treatment. Our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists can actually use dental veneers to make your smile look more seamless in a short period of time. Let’s learn more!
You may already know that dental veneers are simply porcelain dental restorations that are bonded to a patient’s tooth. Veneers can make your teeth look whiter, straighter, and more proportionate—and they can also close gaps between your teeth!
Our dental team will assess your smile in order to determine whether you are a viable candidate for dental veneers. In order to close gaps between your teeth, our dental team will craft your veneers to be slightly wider than your natural dental enamel. By making small width adjustments to your dental veneers, we can make your smile appear better aligned and gapless.
Because dental veneers are firmly bonded to your natural teeth, you will be able to eat, drink, and care for your teeth naturally post-treatment. With proper care—which our dental team will tell you all about—dental veneers can last, and stay bright, for over a decade.
Generally, the entire treatment time for dental veneers is two to three dental appointments. That means that, using dental veneers, you can perfect the appearance of your smile significantly faster than with traditional cosmetic dentistry treatments like orthodontics.
You have many cosmetic dentistry options, and dental veneers could be the right fit for you. Our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists can help you determine which dental treatments are best for your smile and dental goals.
