If you’re not happy with the way some of your teeth look, why not consider veneers? At Kellerman Dental, among the many valuable services that we’re pleased to offer are these thin shells that we place over the fronts of your teeth to enhance your appearance.
Veneers are usually made out of porcelain. And why not? It does an outstanding job matching your teeth’ color; it’s strong and incredibly resistant to stains. If you smoke or like to eat or drink various foods, including coffee, tea, red wine, berries, and hard candies, you will appreciate that benefit.
Pretty much any cosmetic issue you have with your teeth related to size, shape, or color can be dealt with using veneers. Chips or cracks? Misshapen tooth? Crooked or discolored teeth? Even gaps that are too wide between your teeth can be improved with veneers from our office. The best part is that each tooth and each problem does not have to be managed individually.
You just come in to have impressions taken. We will send them to the dental lab, where your veneers will be made to precise specifications. When you come back to our office, your veneers will be fitted for both comfort and aesthetics. You are the final judge. We will make adjustments as needed. And only when you’re satisfied will they then be bonded to your teeth. A small amount of enamel is filed away so that your veneers will not protrude beyond where your other teeth are. They are a long-term solution to your cosmetic dental difficulties.
One call to our office in Glen Carbon, IL, will get you started. Schedule an appointment to have an examination and consultation. Find out if veneers are the right option for you.
