Elmhurst Veneers Dentist Discusses Possibilities of Veneer Treatment

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Mar 7, 2016

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments in our Elmhurst dentist office is cosmetic veneers treatment. Dental veneers are exceptional aesthetic restorations because they are versatile as well as convenient for the dental patient.

In today’s short article, we will be discussing the different ways that our dental team uses dental veneers to help patients. Keep reading to learn more about what is possible with cosmetic veneers!

The first thing to keep in mind is that dental veneers are made to go over the patient’s natural teeth. Once the veneer is in place, it will actually cover all of the visible portions of the patient’s natural tooth.

So, you may choose to have a veneer placed in order to cover unsightly dental stains or discoloration. Once the veneers is attached to the relevant tooth, the tooth will look white, bright and fresh. And because dental veneers are customized to fit the patient, we will make sure that the shade of the veneer coordinates with the patient’s natural teeth.

Another way to use veneers is to place them to make your smile look straighter and more seamless. To close gaps in a patient’s smile, for example, our dental team creates veneers that are slightly wider than the patient’s natural tooth. We can also place veneers over crooked teeth in order to make the smile look straighter.

If you have existing dental damage, like cracks and chips in your teeth, dental veneers may be able to help you! When our dental team resurfaces a tooth with a dental veneer, any existing damage is covered up with fresh, unblemished porcelain.

As you can see, dental veneers can help you, as a dental patient, improve your smile in a number of different ways. IF you want to speak to a dentist about how veneers can help you, specifically, please feel free to call our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists for help!
