If you feel as though you try not to smile to hide imperfections, then it may be time to consider a smile make-over and a consultation with Dr. Ben Cooperman, the Peoria cosmetic dentist may be just the place to start to get you smiling again. During your visit Dr. Cooperman will go over all the different solutions available to fix any dental issues you may have. If you have discolored, chipped or crooked teeth, veneers may be the best option to give you an aesthetically pleasing smile you will never want to hide again.
A dental veneer is an ultra-thin shell of tooth-colored porcelain or composite that is cemented over the facial surfaces of the teeth to correct dental issues. Veneers can help correct dental issues such as worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, tooth discoloration, or chips and cracks in the teeth.
Veneers can be made from different materials although porcelain dental veneers are preferred as they look 100% natural and are more durable. Porcelain veneers can be expected to last 10 to 20 years compared to composite materials which may last up to 5 years.
The best part of your consultation with Dr. Cooperman, Peoria cosmetic dentist, is that by instantly making a mold of your teeth during the visit, a week later you will be able to see what your smile would look like with veneers.
Once you decide to go ahead and confirm that you would like to improve your smile with veneers it will take a few weeks’ time for them to be ready as porcelain veneers are created by a skilled lab technician. They create each veneer based on the mold of your existing teeth and match your teeth color to create a natural look.
The application may then take up to a couple of hours depending on how many veneers need to be set.
Veneers don’t require any special attention. Maintaining a good oral health regimen is all you need to do to keep your veneers clean. So don’t forget to brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day as you would normally.
