When asked to pose for a picture, do you smile broadly? Or do you keep your lips tightly closed in an effort to make sure your teeth don't show? Cosmetic flaws like discoloration, crookedness, chips and oddly-shaped teeth are common, but the good news is that there's a way to treat all of these problems with one restoration: dental veneers. In Wheaton, IL, Dr. David Carlson is the cosmetic dentist you need for beautiful, natural-looking veneers. Interested in learning more? Keep reading!
What are veneers?
Cosmetic veneers are a popular dental restoration in Hollywood, with TV and movie stars using these tiny porcelain shells. Only about half the width of a dime, your veneers will be custom made for each tooth that shows when you smile. They are expertly shaped, polished and painted to ensure they look just like a flawless natural tooth. Once they've been created, they are bonded to your teeth by your Wheaton cosmetic dentist, Dr. Carlson, using a strong cement that keeps them in place. When finished, your veneers will have changed the color, shape, size and alignment of your teeth, giving you a beautiful, camera-worthy smile.
What problems do veneers correct?
Many other cosmetic dental restorations are effective, but they only treat one problem at a time. Since each veneer covers an entire tooth, whatever problems the natural tooth may have are masked by the translucent porcelain. Stubborn stains, gaps, chips, cracks, and misshapen teeth are all easily treated when you have dental veneers from your cosmetic dentist.
Dr. Carlson has received extensive training in restorative techniques, making him the perfect choice for designing and applying your veneers in the Wheaton, IL area. If you're ready to see your best smile in the mirror, we look forward to setting you up with a consultation appointment. Give us a call today!
