A Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedure for a Beautiful Smile
Addison Grove Dental offers veneers as part of our cosmetic dentistry solutions in Addison. Dental veneers are very thin porcelain coverings that our providers secure on the front of your teeth for visible and permanent aesthetic enhancements. These durable restorations offer stunning and durable results that have you smile with confidence in no time. Dr. Primal Singh will determine the adequate number of veneers to help you achieve your dream smile, and the labs creating these cosmetic restorations make sure that the veneers match the look of your surrounding natural teeth.
Our team welcomes you Monday through Friday, from 8am to 5pm, and we offer a free initial consultation to our first-time clients. If you have any questions or concerns about our services, our staff members are here to address them in English, Spanish, or Hindi/Punjabi. We also offer an in-house membership plan to help you get the dental care you need.
What Can Veneers Help With?
Our providers always perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth to make sure that veneers are a good fit for your cosmetic needs. If you require restorative procedures like crowns or an orthodontic treatment like Invisalign, we will take care of those before moving forward with veneers. At Addison Grove Dental, we help you preserve your oral health as much as we offer smile makeovers.
Veneers can create brighter smiles by masking:
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Excessive wear due to teeth grinding
- Gaps between teeth
- Stain or discoloration that does not respond to professional teeth whitening
Dental veneers are a permanent and minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that looks natural and is stain resistant. We only need to remove a very thin layer of your natural enamel to secure the veneers to the front of your teeth, which leaves most of your tooth structure intact.
The Dental Veneers Application Process
Once Dr. Singh has determined that you are an appropriate candidate for veneers, we take medical images of your teeth and create your treatment plan. The next step for veneers involves removing a very thin layer of enamel from your treated teeth and making an impression of your mouth to send to the lab. This helps them construct custom-fit veneers for optimal results. We place temporary veneers to protect your teeth until your follow-up appointment.
When you come back to our office, we will switch the temporary restorations for your permanent ones. We make sure that the definitive veneers are the correct fit and look before securing them to your natural teeth.
Our team is happy to share tips for your at-home dental care and recommend specific products. With adequate brushing and flossing twice a day, and regular checkups to support your oral health, your veneers can last a decade or longer.
What are the Benefits of Veneers
Dental veneers offer several benefits for individuals seeking to enhance the appearance of their teeth. Here are some of the advantages of dental veneers:
- Improved aesthetics: Dental veneers can transform the appearance of teeth by enhancing their shape, size, color, and overall alignment. They can effectively conceal various dental imperfections. Veneers provide a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing smile.
- Durability: Veneers are made of durable materials, typically porcelain or composite resin, that can withstand normal biting and chewing forces. With proper care, veneers can last for many years, providing long-term improvements to the appearance of your teeth.
- Conservative approach: Compared to other cosmetic dental procedures, veneers are a relatively conservative option. The process involves minimal alteration of the natural tooth structure, as only a thin layer of enamel is usually removed to accommodate the veneer. This makes them a more conservative alternative to dental crowns or orthodontic treatments.
- Stain resistance: Porcelain veneers have a smooth and polished surface that is resistant to stains from food, beverages, and tobacco. This allows for a long-lasting, bright smile even with regular consumption of staining substances.
- Easy maintenance: Veneers do not require any special maintenance beyond regular oral hygiene practices. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups are typically sufficient to keep veneers in good condition. It is important to avoid habits that can potentially damage veneers, such as biting on hard objects or using teeth as tools.
- Boost in self-confidence: One of the significant benefits of dental veneers is the positive impact they can have on a person's self-confidence and self-esteem. By improving the appearance of teeth, veneers can help individuals feel more comfortable and confident in social and professional settings.
