Dental VeneersHave you ever marveled at the perfect color and symmetry of a celebrity smile? Many red carpet smiles have the advantage of dental veneers. Patients in the Bloomington, IL area can get a smile makeover at Eastland Dental Center.
Veneer basicsA veneer is a wafer-thin covering for the front surface of a tooth. Veneers are made of strong, luminous porcelain. Each one is expertly crafted to look natural and correct esthetic imperfections. A single tooth may be veneered, or multiple teeth that show when you smile. Usually upper teeth are veneered, but if lower teeth are visible when you smile, they may also be treated.
Uses for veneers
- Cover chips, cracks, pits, or bumps in tooth enamel.
- Close gaps between teeth.
- Improve the shape or size of teeth.
- Mask worn down teeth.
- Disguise deep discoloration.
Painless processOur dentists begin with a thorough examination, taking time to understand your goals. Together, you determine if veneers are the best choice for your smile concerns, oral health, lifestyle, and budget. Then, the procedure is just two appointments.
First, teeth are prepared – a thin layer of surface enamel is removed. Impressions are taken and sent to a dental laboratory, along with detailed instructions and information on shading. Temporary (composite resin) veneers may be placed while waiting for the permanent veneers.
When your final veneers are completed, you return to have them placed. Interim veneers (if any) are removed. A conditioning liquid is applied to teeth for good adhesion. Veneers are cemented into place. Minor trimming and adjustments are made, and your smile is professionally polished.
