These simple tooth-colored restorations could make all the difference for your smile.veneers

If you find yourself becoming jealous of other people’s smiles then you may wish that you had a smile that was straighter, whiter or just more attractive in general. You know that simple cosmetic options like dental bonding or teeth whitening just won’t cut it, but our Springfield, IL, cosmetic dentist, Dr. John Luker, is here to tell you just how dental veneers could possibly be the restoration you’ve been looking for.

What are dental veneers?

These high-quality porcelain shells are custom-made to cover over a tooth and are bonded to the front surface of one or more teeth to transform your smile and alter its shape, size, length or color. Veneers may be a great option for you if you are dealing with:

  • Cracked, chipped or broken teeth
  • Discolorations or severe stains
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Minor misalignments and crookedness
  • Malformed, misshapen or worn down teeth

There are so many different ways that getting dental veneers in Springfield can truly makeover your smile, from making your smile significantly whiter to finally getting you the straight smile you want.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

If you are someone who wants to give your smile a cosmetic boost without having to go through invasive dentistry then veneers may be the best option. Consider dental crowns, for example. In order to get a crown, your natural tooth has to be reshaped in order to accommodate the restoration.

By getting veneers instead, most of your natural tooth structure remains intact. While our dentist will need to shave down a little bit of enamel from the front of your teeth before you can get veneers, this tooth modification is very minimal and can be a great alternative to getting crowns.

Veneers are also custom-made to fit your smile so you know that you’ll get a beautiful, natural-looking restoration. Porcelain veneers even offer the same light reflection and translucency that natural tooth enamel does, so no one will be able to tell that you have veneers. All they will notice is your beautiful smile.

It’s never too late to get the smile you want. Turn to Luker Dental Care in Springfield, IL, to schedule your consultation. Let us show you what porcelain veneers can do for your smile.
