Dental veneers are a great way to upgrade your smile, providing whiteness, straightness, and evenness to your teeth. But while you want to improve your smile, you also want it to look natural.

With custom veneers from dentists Drs. Jeffrey Onik and Connie Onki at Willow Ridge Dental in Naperville, IL, you can feel confident showing off your fabulous grin.

What are veneers?

Veneers are sturdy, thin coverings attached to the surface of your original teeth, concealing any gaps, cracks, chips, or crookedness. Veneers are bonded securely to your teeth so you can eat, talk, and brush without any worry about them budging or shifting. They are one of the most popular services at your Naperville dentist.

How can my veneers be customized?

Veneers from your Naperville dentist are customized to fit your mouth and aesthetic. Your dentist will take a mold to ensure the size is appropriate and comfortable. Together, you collaborate on the tint and shape of your veneers, with varying levels of whiteness and translucency to choose from.

You can select veneers with rounded or squared edges to craft the look you want. Feel free to show your dentist pictures of teeth that you like for reference. Your finalized veneers will be attractive yet inconspicuous, so no one will know that they aren't your natural teeth. As a bonus, veneers also help repel stains from drinks and foods like wine and coffee, keeping them whiter and brighter.

How do I take care of my veneers?

Veneers are durable and permanent, so they require no removal for cleaning, sleeping, or eating. You can brush, bite, and chew like you would with your original teeth. It is best to avoid biting especially hard or sticky objects so as not to disrupt or chip your veneers, which are strong but can still be damaged. If you do crack or chip a veneer, contact your Naperville dentist right away.
