More About Veneers in Naperville
Veneers are thin coverings that are applied over the top of the teeth. They are wafer thin and made of a strong and natural looking material such as porcelain. When they are bonded to the teeth, they create a natural-looking surface. This is because the material used to make them is tough and clear. It also doesn’t stain like natural tooth enamel.
With advancements in dental technology, veneers can now be made so thin that they are nearly undetectable. Veneers can be used to improve:
- Size & Shape: Whether from grinding or just not having a shape or size you desire, veneers can create a more desirable smile.
- Color: When the teeth have been stained, veneers help restore a bright white desired by many.
- Alignment & Spacing: These veneers can close small gaps between the teeth and even make slight corrections while also improving color and shape too.
For individuals with a large gap or severely misaligned teeth, orthodontics may be a better option. Also, those who have lost a lot of tooth structure from decay or have had a lot of trauma, porcelain crowns may be a better choice. Dr. Ojjeh can determine whether veneers are a viable option for your situation.
