Posts for tag: Porcelain Veneers
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.

How your cosmetic dentist in Herrin can enhance your smile
If you are unhappy with your smile, you can improve what nature and genetics gave you, thanks to cosmetic dentistry. Today’s cosmetic dental procedures can provide you with a dazzling, beautiful smile that is also strong to allow you to enjoy the foods you love. You can have a smile that does it all. Dr. Christopher Hughes at Hughes Dental Arts Centre in Herrin, IL, wants to share how cosmetic dentistry can enhance your smile.
Dr. Hughes provides a complete range of cosmetic dental services to correct most common dental issues. Consider:
Porcelain veneers, which are thin sheaths of beautiful, translucent porcelain, cemented over the front surfaces of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can cosmetically correct teeth that are:
- Unevenly or severely worn down due to aging
- Cracked, chipped or broken due to trauma
- Slightly overlapped, spaced apart, or rotated
Cosmetic bonding, using a tooth-colored resin material that can blend perfectly with your teeth, creating a virtually invisible addition to your smile; bonding can fix small chips, defects or cracks in your teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings, using composite which is color-matched perfectly to your existing teeth, creating a harmonious, seamless smile; no more unsightly metal!
Porcelain crowns and bridges, using high-tech dental ceramic which is translucent and reflects light just like your natural teeth; these crowns and bridges are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Teeth whitening treatments, if you want to whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter; you can choose from a quick in-office treatment or a convenient take-home whitening kit.
Invisalign, if you want to straighten your teeth discreetly, quickly and comfortably; Invisalign uses clear plastic trays called aligners which are smooth and comfortable. You change aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually shift into position. Treatment is complete at nine to fifteen months.
Dental implants, if you want to replace missing teeth with the most revolutionary, natural-looking treatment available; dental implants can replace a single missing tooth and are capped with a crown. If you have multiple missing teeth, the implants are capped with a denture, called an overdenture.
