Get the smile you’ve always wanted in just two trips to the dentist’s office.

With the start of a New Year, many people start thinking of ways to revamp their appearances and improve their confidence. If you are dealing with discolored, misshapen or slightly crooked teeth then you may be wondering how our Springfield, IL dentist Dr. John Luker can help. Luker Dental Care offers a wide range of cosmetic options, and one of the most popular options is dental veneers.

What are dental veneers?

A veneer is a custom-fitted shell often made from porcelain that covers the front of your teeth and creates a new outer surface for the tooth that improves its appearance while also hiding the tooth’s flaws. Veneers are bonded directly to the front of the tooth to cover imperfections and also to alter the overall length, shape, color and alignment of your teeth.

What are some of the ways that veneers can improve smiles?

Just by bonding these thin porcelain shells to your teeth our Springfield dentist can enhance your look permanently so that you finally have the smile you’ve always wanted. Here are just some of the ways veneers can fix your smile,

Close up gaps

If you find that there are small gaps between teeth, particularly front teeth, then you may feel a little self-conscious about smiling. While you might assume that the only option is braces, you’ll be happy to hear that veneers can cover up gaps to make your smile appear more aligned without ever needing orthodontic treatment.

Get a more radiant smile

Internal stains may be caused by certain medications such as antibiotics or exposure to too much fluoride. Whatever the case may be, veneers can provide you with the whiter smile you want.

Hide cracks, chips and other imperfections

While teeth are very durable even injury or eating very hard foods can lead to chips and cracks. If the crack or chip is superficial enough that it isn’t actually impacting the health and functionality of the tooth then a veneer can be used to hide these imperfections while also providing an added layer of support for the tooth. Veneers even have the ability to alter the shape and size of misshapen or worn teeth.

Are you ready to reap the benefits of a beautiful smile? If you want to learn more about veneers and whether they are right for you then call Luker Dental Care in Springfield, IL, at (217) 546-8330 to schedule a consultation.
