Elmhurst Veneers Dentist Explains How Porcelain Veneers are Designed to Close Gaps In Your Smile

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Nov 27, 2013

Most patients think that the only way to close spaces between teeth is to undergo orthodontic treatment. The truth, however, is that quick and comfortable dental veneers can also give your smile the straight, seamless appearance that you want. Today we are going to be talking a little bit more about how our Elmhurst veneers dentists use dental veneers to achieve the appearance of orthodontic treatment.

One of the most common complaints that patients have about their smiles is that there are visible spaces between their teeth. You may just have one misaligned tooth, or your smile may have many blank spaces. No matter what the case, our dentist can help you achieve a more perfected smile.

Our dental team is able to craft your veneers to suit your smile and fit your needs. So if you have teeth that are unevenly spaced, we will design your veneers to be a bit wider than your natural teeth. Depending on your type of dental spacing, your entire veneer may be wider than your natural tooth, or we may just craft the top or bottom of your veneer to cover a small empty space.

The key to achieving optimal results is to keep your dental veneers proportionate to your natural teeth. Our team will create a mock-up of your mouth, so that you can see how your new, slightly wider veneers will enhance the appearance of your smile.
