Are You A Candidate For Veneers?

If you are embarrassed by your smile because of chipped, misshapen or cracked teeth? Dental veneers could be the perfect solution to restore both the functionality and aesthetic of your smile! Our cosmetic dentist in Highland Park will recommend veneers in a variety of circumstances. They are made from either porcelain or resin material, and our team will work with you to help decide which veneer material is best for you, as each material has its own benefits.

How Veneers Work

Veneers, whether they are made from porcelain or from resin, are thin layers, resembling a shell, to fit over your teeth. To prepare your tooth for the veneer, our cosmetic dentist in Highland Park will remove a small amount of enamel from your natural teeth to make room for the veneer; this allows it to look as natural as possible. From there, we will make an impression of your teeth and determine the shade so that the veneer looks as natural as possible. Once we receive your custom veneer from the lab, we are able to place it permanently to your teeth.

Which Material is Best?

Both porcelain and composite resin offer their own advantages. Porcelain veneers are strong, long-lasting, and are stain-resistant. Composite resin veneers require less natural tooth to be shaved before placing them and are generally cheaper than porcelain veneers. However, they are not as strong as porcelain veneers.

Caring for Veneers

Know that veneers are not resistant to damage, and that they can break under pressure. Make sure to brush and floss daily to take care of your veneers and don’t use them to bite into hard objects like pencils or ice.
