Veneers are used by your Herrin, Illinois cosmetic dentist Dr. Christopher Hughes from Hughes Dental Art Centre to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile. When someone doesn’t like the color of their teeth, their shape or even their alignment, veneers can help remedy these things. For those with worn down, cracked or chipped teeth, veneers are also a great treatment option. Dr. Hughes can examine your teeth and decide whether or not you’re a good candidate for porcelain veneers.
More about Veneers
Because of their material (porcelain), they can withstand normal wear and tear well. They also can last a long period of time. These porcelain veneers are bonded directly to the surface of a patient’s teeth by your Herrin, Illinois cosmetic dentist. Before a patient gets veneers, an impression of their teeth is taken. This impression is used in order to custom design the veneers. This dental technology allows Dr. Hughes to create dental restorations that provide the proper form, function and fit needed for each dental patient.
In order to apply your porcelain veneers, a part of one’s existing tooth enamel is removed in a thin layer to allow for the thickness of the new veneers. The new veneers are bonded with a cement material that is hardened with a curing light. Ultimately, porcelain veneers can improve someone’s smile in a simple way.
With the help of your Herrin, Illinois cosmetic dentist Dr. Hughes from Hughes Dental Art Centre, you too can change your smile. After a comprehensive exam from him, he can successfully determine whether or not you would benefit from porcelain veneers or another other dental restoration procedure.
