If it is time to transform your teeth and take your smile to the next level, dental veneers may be the perfect cosmetic dentistry solution for you. This article from our Elmhurst dentists will help you figure out whether veneers are right for you, so keep reading to get the information you need in order to make the best decision for your smile!

Q: How large will my dental veneers be?

A: Because dental veneers are tailored to suit each individual patient, our dental team will make sure that your veneers are perfectly sized to correlate with your real teeth. Veneers are completely customizable, so your veneers will be sized to suit your overall appearance. In general, veneers are about as thick as a contact lens—they are made to be thin so that they can fit into the patient’s mouth without feeling bulky.

Q: What kinds of foods can I eat once I have dental veneers?

A: One benefit of dental veneers is that the patient can quickly resume normal life post-treatment. You will be able to eat your favorite foods and drink your favorite beverages once you have veneers. We do recommend that you avoid any substances that would be harmful for your natural teeth—like tobacco—as these will also compromise your veneers.

Q: How many dental veneers should I use?

A: Our dentist will help you determine the exact number of veneers that is right for your smile. The good news is that you have a great amount of flexibility—you can transform your entire smile with veneers, or use just one or two veneers to refurbish your teeth.
