Rejuvenate Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
posted: May 09, 2019.
There have never been more options for improving a damaged or less than perfect smile. Even minor imperfections like stains or small chips and cracks can damage your smile and affect your confidence and self-esteem. Veneers are a fast, effective, and minimally invasive option to change the size, shape, and color of damaged teeth. Dr. Allen Momongan, a dentist serving Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois, offers a range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry options.
Veneers are made of a razor-thin, translucent piece of porcelain that is bonded to the surface of the tooth and molded to change the shape and size of the tooth.
Porcelain veneers can fix a number of cosmetic dental problems such as:
- Mild to moderate gaps and spacing (problems caused by bite and alignment problems may require orthodontic treatment)
- Chips and cracks
- Permanent stains and discolorations
- Change the shape or size of unattractive teeth
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are custom designed to makeover your smile in as little as two or three trips to the dentist. Studies have found that a damaged or unattractive smile is the biggest cause of embarrassment and low self-esteem for many American adults. And a bad smile is about more than the confidence to smile for selfies - dental imperfections can affect everything from job prospects to social interactions. Whiter, straighter teeth can even take a few years off of your appearance.
With a good oral hygiene routine and adequate dental care, you can maintain your porcelain veneers.
