Dental Veneers in Naperville
Concerned about the appearance of a particular tooth or teeth? Whether that tooth is stained, worn, cracked, or chipped, dental veneers could be the perfect choice to restore the appearance of your smile. At Naperville Family Dental, we provide our patients with long-lasting, high-quality and natural-looking veneers.
What Are Dental Veneers?
A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain material that goes over the front of an existing tooth in order to restore its appearance. Veneers are used to correct a size, shape, or color discrepancy in a patient’s tooth or teeth. Veneers give patients a natural-looking smile that can provide them with confidence every day.
Veneers can be made out of a variety of different materials that emulate the look and feel of natural teeth. The most common types today are porcelain and composite resin veneers. Porcelain has traditionally been used in many dental procedures for its hardness and similar visual appearance to natural teeth. Dr. Jonker and the team at Naperville Family Dental utilize the latest dental technology to deliver beautiful, durable and long-lasting veneers.
The Dental Veneer Procedure
There are a variety of cosmetic dental procedures available that help address damaged, worn, and stained teeth. Before your procedure, the team at Naperville Family Dental will evaluate your unique smile and determine whether veneers are the right choice for you.
If veneers are the best option, some tooth preparation is usually required. For porcelain veneers, the face of the tooth is delicately prepared to accommodate the porcelain and then scanned with our 3D scanner. This is so that the veneer will have somewhere to sit, bringing it flush with the rest of the tooth.
Following the procedure, you can expect to see the natural-looking, perfect smile veneers are known for. Once your veneers are placed, you can take a few simple steps to preserve them. You should avoid chewing on hard objects like ice or your fingernails. If you grind your teeth at night, a protective retainer may be needed.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Dental veneers are a long-lasting solution that can endure for years. This can vary depending on individual factors like physical damage to the veneers.
When veneers eventually become worn, damaged, or stained enough to be replaced, they can be. The process is essentially the same as when they were first put on, except that the remaining veneer material is removed instead of enamel. From there, new veneers can be applied.
