Enhance your smile with porcelain veneers
Are you considering your options for creating a whiter, brighter, more beautiful, and more attractive smile? At Total Health Dental of Aurora, Illinois, we have solutions for you! One of our most popular cosmetic procedures is that of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers allow restoration of the teeth near the front of the smile and are used to cover imperfect teeth.
Understanding how porcelain veneers work
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain made to be bonded onto the tooth’s front surface. They cover imperfections that might negatively detract from an otherwise beautiful smile. They are often used to:
- Cover worn teeth
- Disguise uneven tooth alignment
- Eliminate small gaps between the front teeth
- Cover chipped or damaged teeth
- Address permanent staining of natural tooth enamel
These restorations are highly desirable because they can improve the smile’s overall appearance quickly and efficiently. Patients may use a single veneer to address an individual tooth or might consider several veneers for the teeth near the front of the smile.
Who is a good candidate for porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are best for patients with healthy smiles free from decay and periodontal disease. They are used when patients choose veneers over composite resin, orthodontics, or professional teeth whitening alternatives. We evaluate a patient to determine if they are a good fit for the placement of these restorations to address their specific aesthetic needs.
Do porcelain veneers require shaving the tooth structure?
Our veneers are made in a way that about half a millimeter of your natural tooth structure will be removed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. The small amount removed will let the actual veneers sit perfectly over the teeth providing a seamless procedure.
