A beautiful smile is an invaluable asset. It makes you look more presentable and you have more confidence to converse with others. However, maintaining it is not easy especially due to unhealthy eating habits.

You can lose this perfect smile through:

  • Discoloration
  • Staining
  • Cracking and chipping
  • Poor spacing or misaligning

Reclaiming Your Smile

Luckily, you can now reclaim your lovely facial outlook through dental veneers. These are wafer thin custom-made fittings that cover the front of your damaged tooth to give it a better appearance. They can either be made of:

  • Porcelain, which resists staining in future and are more natural once they are set in place.
  • Resin composite, which is very thin thus reducing amount of tooth material to be removed before placement.

The Procedure

While there are hundreds of Orland Park dental specialists,the procedures they use for placing these fittings are professionally similar.

These include:

  1. Initial examination: This involves assessment of effected teeth to ascertain this is the best cosmetic procedure. It also entails getting X-ray and 3-D image of the tooth’s impression to ensure the veneer created fits perfectly. The process of custom-building the fittings can take one or two weeks.
  2. During the second visit: Your teeth will be cleaned at the clinic. A small amount of enamel will be removed to help the veneers fit and the surface is again cleaned and etched to provide the best bonding surface.
  3. The veneer is tested on the tooth and if it fits, the dentist will remove it and apply the bonding cement. Positioning is then done and a high-intensity light applied to fully secure the veneer.

Versatility of dental veneers in tackling multiple problems and their permanency makes them ideal. At Complete Dentistry of Orland Park we have the facilities, personnel and skills to help reclaim your smile and live a fuller life.
