If you have a cosmetic problem with a specific tooth, or want to achieve the smile of your dreams, you may be a good candidate for getting dental veneers. At our dental practice, Steven R. Feigelson, DDS, our Elwood dentist, Dr. Steven R. Feigelson, can provide you with beautiful dental veneers to improve the look of your smile.
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are made to cover the front of the tooth. These veneers do not strengthen the tooth in any way, so they can only be used to fix the appearance of teeth which are cosmetically damaged or unattractive. Dental veneers are used to fix many cosmetic dental problems including: teeth that are too short; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that are chipped; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that are discolored and cannot be corrected with dental whitening methods; and many other cosmetic dental problems. Our Elwood dentist will meet with you to determine whether or not your cosmetic dental problem can be fixed with dental veneers. If it is found that your tooth also is structurally damaged, or needs to be strengthened, he may instead recommend that you get a porcelain crown which will not only improve the look of your tooth but which will strengthen your tooth, as well. However, if it is confirmed that your dental problem is purely cosmetic, our dentist will most likely be able to provide you with dental veneers to give you the smile you have long wanted. When a patient gets porcelain veneers at our office, the porcelain veneers are perfectly color-matched to their adjacent teeth so no one will ever tell that they have veneers in their mouth. The porcelain veneers are permanently attached to the front of the tooth and made to last for many years. Veneers are extremely thin, but also extremely strong.
