When people seek cosmetic dentistry to improve their smile, porcelain veneers from David A. Rice DDS in Elgin are a popular option.
Unlike a crown that completely covers the tooth, a veneer is a super thin layer of a very heavy-duty porcelain. When bonded to a tooth, the veneer creates a natural, translucent, and new surface. It improves the appearance of the visible portion of your tooth instantly.
To begin, you will need a consultation. You should look at what you do not like about your smile and confirm how you want it improved. Veneers may not be optimal for you. Other cosmetic dental procedures are available that may be a better fit for the characteristics you wish to change.
Porcelain veneers can fix many minor to moderate issues, including the size, shape, and color of your teeth. Gaps between teeth can be filled, as well as the lengthening or shortening of teeth to complete your beautiful smile.
We can help you analyze your unique needs and advise you on how to reach your goals. Once we have collaborated with you on a dental plan, we will work with a laboratory and dental team to assure everything is carried out as discussed.
