Do You Brush Veneers?

Veneers are an effective way to fix chipped, cracked, misaligned, or discolored teeth. If you’re for a way to brighten your smile and fix common smile problems, then veneers might be the answer you’re seeking. Dr. Scott Emalfarb and Dr. Arielle Wulfsohn at Lake View Dental Associates in Lakeview Chicago, IL  can help you determine if veneers are the best option to create a smile you can be proud of.

How Do Veneers Beautify My Smile?

Veneers cover your natural teeth. They are a thin, restorative layer that is often made of porcelain, shaped to create a beautiful tooth shape and colored to be similar to the whites of your eyes so that they look natural. Veneers create the illusion of a perfect smile, even if you weren’t born with one, or your smile has been damaged due to a sports injury, a dental mishap, dental decay, or any other reason.  

How Do I Care for Veneers Once I Get Them?

Veneers have gone through many technological advances in recent years. Previously, the top layer of your natural teeth was to be filed down slightly to apply the bonding material that adheres to the veneers to your teeth. This made your teeth more prone to cavities. With newer veneers, you don’t need to lose this tooth layer when they are applied. 

You still need to brush your teeth as you normally would as well as floss regularly to make sure that you are cleaning away bacteria from the gumline. With proper care of your veneers, you can maintain great oral hygiene.

Can I Schedule an Appointment Right Away?

If you think veneers might be the answer to your smile problems like misaligned, chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, you don’t need to wait for your regularly scheduled dental cleaning to find out.
