Many cosmetic dental procedures can be employed to whiten your teeth, straighten them, hide unsightly gaps, as well as camouflage minor chips and cracks. There is one cosmetic dental procedure that does all of that; veneers. Veneers in Chicago are an affordable, dependable, long-lasting solution to less than perfect smiles.
Veneers are extremely thin slivers or shells made of porcelain or resin material; they are custom made to fit on the front of teeth. Many cosmetic dental procedures take multiple treatments or extensive therapy; dental veneers are finished after a couple of visits to the dentist that take a minimum of time. When you leave the dentist’s office after the veneers have been placed, you do so with a stunning smile.
Types of dental veneers:
Dental veneers in Chicago can be made from composite resin or porcelain; both types are made in a dental laboratory.
Once the decision has been made to go ahead with the procedure, the dentist will determine the best color, size, and shape that will best flatter your face and smile. The dentist will grind a small amount from the exposed surface of your teeth and make an impression. The impression; along with specific instructions, are sent to the dental lab.
After a week or two, the veneers are ready to be permanently fixed to the front of your teeth. The dentist uses a powerful bonding material that is hardened under a light source. Fitting veneers in Chicago take very little time.
Caring for your veneers:
Dental veneers should be cared for in the same manner that you care for your teeth. Brushing twice a day and using dental floss to remove debris and plaque is all that is needed. Regular checkups with your dentist will help ensure that your teeth and veneers will last for many years.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth and smile, you may wish to consider dental veneers. To discuss veneers in Chicago, you are invited to make an appointment with Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park.
