Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Dental Veneers

Question: What are veneers?

Answer: Veneers are thin shells of special dental porcelain. Veneers are custom-made and placed on the front teeth by your Chicago IL cosmetic dentist using a powerful bonding agent.

Question: What can porcelain veneers do to improve my smile?

Answer: Porcelain veneers can address multiple smile issues. Veneers can mask permanent stains, improve the appearance of misalignment, close gaps between teeth, repair cracked or chipped teeth, reshape malformed or damaged teeth, and lengthen worn down teeth.

Question: What are no-prep veneers?

Answer: Porcelain veneers require the removal of small layers of tooth enamel before they can be placed. No-prep veneers require no loss of enamel. These breakthrough veneers are incredibly thin and blend seamlessly with your smile.

Question: How long do veneers last?

Answer: Your stain resistant veneers can provide decades of quality smile restoration. Simply care for your veneers as you would your natural teeth, maintaining dental habits such as brushing, flossing, and attending regular checkups and cleanings.
