VeneersAccording to a study commissioned by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), at least one-third of adults want a more attractive smile. Every case is different and unique, but there are numerous reasons why a patient would want to choose veneers over other dental treatments to achieve this goal. It is one of the top three cosmetic treatments in dentistry requested by patients in the United States according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). Consider the benefits of veneers in advance of your cosmetic consultation with Dr. Meredith Gantos and Dr. Danielle Cascioli in Naperville, IL.

Veneer Benefits to Consider
Many people assume that they must wait many months or years to have a better-looking smile. However, one of the benefits of veneers is that they can usually be installed in under a month. That means that you might be able to debut your new smile in time for an upcoming special event. Another benefit is that veneers are very lightweight and translucent, so you’ll barely know that they are there. Modern veneers are designed to look very authentic and natural, blending right in with your other teeth.

How Veneers Are Made and Installed
Veneers are created in a dental lab by a specialist who uses the dental impressions taken by your Naperville dentist. They are carefully crafted out of resilient porcelain material. The process takes a few weeks. Once ready, your dentist will apply each veneer using a dental cement that is the ideal shade for your smile.

Caring for Your New Smile
Attentive daily at-home dental care is extremely important if you want your veneers to maintain their bond for as long as possible. Some patients manage to keep them looking well-formed and well-polished for a decade or longer. It is important to pay extra attention to the surfaces where the veneers are bonded to your natural teeth. With regular brushing and flossing, you’ll ensure that plaque and calculus cannot from around the veneers.
