Dental veneers in Chicago, IL (Ukrainian Village) are a standard treatment Dr. Tariq Riyal and Dr. Thomas Kaminski use at Miswak Dentistry to correct imperfections with your teeth. Today, veneers are a durable and aesthetically-pleasing treatment for people with dental stains, gaps, worn-down or misshapen teeth. Here are some frequently asked questions about veneers to help get you started.
Can Veneers Restore My Smile?
Porcelain veneers are a proven and widely-used treatment dentists use to restore the smile of people with cracks, gaps, chips, or discolored teeth. In just a few visits, many people who haven't smiled in years because they're embarrassed by their teeth find they can't stop smiling.
What are Veneers Made From?
Most veneers in Chicago, IL (Ukrainian Village) that Dr. Riyal and Dr. Kaminski of Miswak Dentistry use today are made from porcelain. However, some are made from resin composite materials. Porcelain is the preferred choice of dentists and patients since it resists stains better than resin veneers. Additionally, porcelain has light-reflecting properties, which are similar to natural teeth.
Do Dental Veneers Have Limitations?
Almost all dental restoration procedures have limitations. For example, before dentists can fit patients with veneers, they must remove a small layer of enamel. This can make teeth more sensitive to anything hot or cold. Additionally, people with gum disease or failing teeth are not good candidates for veneers.
How Difficult Is it to Care for Veneers?
Practicing good oral hygiene and using the proper toothbrush and toothpaste is all it takes to take care of your veneers. Dentists recommend you use a soft toothbrush and avoid toothpaste with harsh abrasives. Additionally, some of your teeth may be at risk of tooth decay if they're not protected by porcelain veneers.
