If you’ve ever worked with wood, you’ve likely seen the amazing transformation that occurs when placing a piece of veneer onto a previously rough, unfinished wooden surface. The veneer is perfectly smooth, and completely changes the look and feel of the wood.

That same principle applies to dental veneers. If you’re in the market for a smile makeover, then this guide to dental veneers is a great place to start deciding which options are best for you.

What are they?
Dental veneers are essentially wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are shaped and colored to look just like the outward-facing surface of your real teeth. A dentist has years of experience and schooling in crafting these veneers to look so real that only a professional like Dr. Ashok Jhanji can tell a tooth with a veneer from a natural one.

What’s the process like?
You’ll first schedule an appointment with our team here at Southwest Dental Center. We’re pleased to offer dental veneers to our patients in the Hometown, Illinois, area. Once the appointment is set, you’ll be evaluated for how many veneers you need, and measurements will be taken to ensure a proper, exact fit.

Then, once the veneers are created, they’ll be cemented into place and polished. You’ll leave our office with a brand new smile! To set up your appointment today, give us a call at 708-425-4545.
