Lake Forest, Lake Bluff IL
Wanting a perfectly bright, straight smile is not uncommon. Many people desire to have an attractive smile for various reasons. Some may want a confident smile to excel in their career, while others may be searching for a perfect partner. Thankfully, cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the smile you desire. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover imperfections like chipped, stained, or slightly uneven teeth. The whole process takes only a couple of weeks, and you will be smiling confidently! Plus, the results look completely natural. What’s holding you back? Today on the blog, our cosmetic dentists in Lake Forest share seven reasons to opt for veneers.
The high-quality dental porcelain used to fabricate veneers is stain resistant. That’s right! You can sip your coffee or wine without fear of staining your teeth. However, we recommend patients maintain a healthy diet and an oral hygiene routine of brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Your teeth and gums will still need regular dental care like before.
Can Hide Stains
If your teeth are already stained, no problem! While teeth whitening can brighten your teeth shades whiter, it doesn’t last. Additionally, most patients have other aesthetic concerns that they wish to correct as well. Therefore, veneers are a one-and-done approach. You won’t have to get individual treatments for each dental problem. Plus, no more teeth whitening needed if you get all of your visible teeth covered with veneers.
Veneers are crafted from extremely durable material. They are strong enough to withstand the usual wear and tear from biting or chewing food. However, we recommend not using your teeth to bite your fingernails, open packages, or do other activities that teeth aren’t designed for. Otherwise, you risk damaging the porcelain or your underlying tooth structure. Additionally, you should still plan on wearing a sports guard if you engage in sports activities. While veneers are incredibly durable, they aren’t indestructible.
Can Help Make Teeth Look Straight
Many patients have slightly crooked, twisted, or gapped teeth. While orthodontics is a go-to treatment in these cases, it’s not the right choice for everyone. Instead, veneers can be specially designed so that your teeth appear straight once veneers are placed.
Repairs a Chipped Tooth
Accidents happen whether you bump your front tooth while wrestling with your kids or got socked in the mouth while shooting some hoops with your pals. A chipped tooth can happen to anyone. However, a quick fix would be to get a single porcelain veneer to cover the damaged tooth. It may take a couple of weeks to get the permanent restoration, although you will have a temporary placed over your tooth in the meantime. That way, you won’t have to sport a chipped tooth when you grin.
Matches Natural Teeth
If you only need to get one or two veneers, they will be chosen in a shade that matches your existing teeth. So you never have to worry about your restored tooth looking obvious or standing out when you smile.
Transforms Your Smile
Porcelain veneers are what makes Hollywood smiles. If you’ve ever seen people smile with the most perfect-looking teeth, the chances are that smile was created by veneers. Naturally perfect teeth are rare but attainable if you choose the best cosmetic dentist in Lake Forest.
