When you are looking to improve your smile there are many different directions you can take. In today’s post we will be exploring one of the options available at our Evanston dental office to maximize your smile potential. Whether you are looking to correct worn teeth, discolored teeth, or a gap in your teeth, veneers may be the option for you.
A veneer in dentistry is a restoration that covers your original tooth. Unlike crowns, veneers allow you to retain the majority of your original tooth structure. Veneers can be a cosmetic solution, but in some instances veneers can be used in a restorative manner. There are several different options for veneers. At our office we offer one visit veneers using our CEREC milling machine and contact lens thin Lumineers®.
Dr. James Stephens has used Lumineers to restore an older, worn smile to a beautiful white smile:
He has also used Lumineers to correct a gap between front teeth:
In both cases, multiple veneers were used to preserve the color and look of the patient’s smile. Traditionally 6 or 8 veneers are done at the same time depending on how wide your smile is.
