What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Do you have severely stained or damaged teeth? Try porcelain dental veneer treatment at Premier Dentistry at Millennium Park in Chicago, IL. This popular cosmetic treatment is long-lasting and provides flawless results. They are custom made shells that will fit over the existing tooth. For a secure fit, the dental veneer is bonded into place. A veneer is very thin but is capable of hiding the following blemishes: severely stained teeth, crooked teeth, teeth with gaps in between them, chipped or broken teeth, and uneven teeth. Dental veneers made of porcelain ceramic offer a benefit over other cosmetic dental procedures. Because porcelain reflects light, the end result looks just like natural teeth.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
Prior to presenting treatment options, we will examine your teeth and gums to see if there are dental issues that need to be addressed, such as tooth decay or gum disease. To begin treatment your cosmetic dentists will remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth being treated. This is done to create a proper bonding surface for the porcelain veneers. Then, we will take 3-D digital scans of your teeth and send specifications for the shade of veneers chosen to a dental lab.
When the veneers are complete, Dr. Brand or Dr. Stein will make sure that the surface of your teeth are clean, and then bond each veneer to the affected teeth. After bonding the veneers, they will check your bite and make final adjustments to ensure that the veneers feel comfortable. You will leave our Chicago dentist office with a new beautiful smile.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
How much do porcelain veneers cost?
There are several factors that go into the price of porcelain veneers, including materials (composite resin veneers), the size, and location of the tooth, as well as the patient’s cosmetic goals of treatment. If you have more minor cosmetic concerns, we offer tooth bonding as a more economical alternative to dental veneers. Another type of veneers include composite resin veneers.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Our goal is for your porcelain veneers to last as long as possible. It is common to need some minor repair or maintenance on veneers after several years. To ensure long-lasting results, maintain your veneers by brushing and flossing regularly as well as visiting Premier Dentistry at least twice a year for a professional cleaning and tooth and gum examination.
What are the pros and cons of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a durable and stain-resistant cosmetic treatment that look and feel like natural teeth. However, some patients may be hesitant about porcelain veneers because they require tooth preparation. If this is a concern, you can try tooth bonding, which requires little or no tooth preparation.
