About Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin white porcelain shells that we adhere to the front of your teeth to hide common dental problems. For those who want a straighter smile without years of orthodontics or those who want a whiter smile that teeth whitening just can’t treat, dental veneers can help.
The Dental Veneer Process
Once we deem your smile ideal for dental veneers, the first step will be prepping your smile. Since this procedure is minimally invasive, you won’t have to worry about complicated, painful tooth prep. In fact, most tooth prep prior to adding the dental veneers doesn’t require anesthesia.
First we will remove a small amount of your tooth’s enamel to accommodate the added size of the veneers. We only remove about ½ millimeter of enamel during the process; however, once this is done, your procedure is considered irreversible.
Next we will determine the proper shade of your dental veneers to give you a white but realistic smile. The last step will involve putting the dental veneers on. We will apply a special cement to the veneers and place them over your teeth. Then we will use a laser beam to harden the cement and permanently adhere the veneers to give you a brand new smile.
If you have internal dental stains that teeth whitening just can’t treat or other dental imperfections that you want to hide, than dental veneers could be ideal for you. However, in order to properly determine whether this treatment is right for your smile, call your Wheaton, IL dentist today to schedule a smile consultation. We would be happy to talk to you about the procedure and if it could give you the smile you want.
