Though they are used by many dentists across the country, many patients are not familiar with dental veneers and how they can improve their smiles. Northwestern Dental Group’s dental veneers in Gurnee, Illinois, can help improve many dental imperfections. These may include:
- Wide gaps or spaces
- Cracks or chips in the enamel
- Slight tooth misalignment
- Dental defects or misshapen teeth
- Yellow, stained or otherwise discolored teeth
Our dental veneers are made from a porcelain resin to match your surrounding teeth. They are designed as thin shells that to cover the affected tooth. The tooth is cleaned and color-matched to a veneer, and then fitted into place. Using a specialized light, a bonding material is used to set the veneer into place. From here the material can be shaped and shaved to look more natural, as our dentists may see fit.
This treatment also has cosmetic and practical advantages over other procedures. Veneers are typically non-invasive, providing restoration while conserving the existing tooth. As with any dental treatment, you should consult with a professional on what treatment best fits you. To talk with a professional at Northwestern Dental Group, call 847-505-0775. Our office team will help you schedule a veneer appointment with our dentists and determine how to proceed with your treatment.
