About Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic enhancement with porcelain veneers can repair a beautiful smile by masking certain aesthetic concerns, such as chips, cracks, stains, minor gaps, and more concerns. Slim, customized shells that fit over the visible enamel of the patient’s teeth, veneers establish a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Porcelain veneers are sturdy, however still slim enough to be translucent, which helps the veneers to blend in with the natural teeth. Having veneers made by our dentists at DentalWorks - Harlem & North in Chicago, IL is a quick, simple solution to cover several aesthetic blemishes and deliver a rejuvenated, radiant smile.
What to Expect
To begin the procedure of crafting the custom veneers our dentists must create space for the veneer by taking off a wafer-thin layer of enamel from every tooth that is going to be covered to the veneer. After the teeth have been prepped, our dentists can take a digital image of the teeth, which will be used to make the personalized veneers in a dental laboratory. A transitional veneer may be used to conceal the teeth until the custom veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Harlem & North in Chicago, IL. The personalized veneers will be secured to the front of the teeth using a professional bonding agent. Our dentists can fine-tune the veneers if needed to give the patient a comfortable fit.
Another appointment is usually booked for around seven days after the veneers are bonded to make sure the glue is strong and the feel is still comfortable. Dental veneers are more resistant to staining than the natural teeth, but to maintain the veneers in their ideal condition, our dentists recommend giving up staining drinks and foods, including coffee, soda, tea, and red wine. Patients are encouraged to start or continue to stick with a good home dental care routine, including daily tooth brushing using a non-abrasive toothpaste, frequent flossing, and scheduling appointments with our dentists for cleanings and exams at DentalWorks - Harlem & North. With proper care, veneers may be kept on for up to twenty years.
Dental veneers are classified a cosmetic treatment, which means it is generally not paid dental insurance. Although, DentalWorks - Harlem & North in Chicago, IL takes several payment choices, plus our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Harlem & North can assist patients with financing options to make veneers reasonably priced.
