Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Would it be worth it to enhance my smile”? We offer artistic restorations and cosmetic enhancements to patients in the Chicago area. One of our most popular cosmetic services involves bonding porcelain veneers. This cosmetic procedure addresses many smile imperfections by carefully placing cosmetic enhancements over the front of your teeth. Made from porcelain, veneers are thin shell like coverings that provide beautiful and natural looking smile makeovers. In more experienced cosmetic offices, veneers are used in place of crowns as a more conservative option.
Do you tend to hide your smile?
Do you have staining or inconsistencies in the size, shape or even spacing of your teeth? Have you spent years feeling embarrassed by these imperfections, yet settled for the smile you have, because you were unsure if a cosmetic dentist could really help improve it? If so, why not make this year the one in which you finally do something about those insecurities? If you decide to enhance your smile, you will achieve a transformed smile you will actually feel proud to show off. Cosmetic dentistry like porcelain veneers makes it possible to address many imperfections, and to actually create a dazzling smile in their place!
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Benefit You
Porcelain veneers can be used to cover discolored teeth, straighten crooked or damaged teeth, as well as inconsistencies in the size and shape of the teeth. They can even be used to hide minor spaces between some of the teeth, though they should not be used as a substitute for orthodontic treatment to address alignment issues.
Perhaps best of all, modern veneers are made of durable dental grade porcelain, which is strong and stain resistant enough to last for decades with proper preventive dental care. Veneers can also be made thinner than before, allowing for more of a tooth’s healthy enamel to be preserved, while still creating enhancements that sit naturally within the smile.
Top Five Ways Veneers Enhance My Smile
Veneers offer a natural healthy smile
Made from tooth colored porcelain, veneers resemble your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are wafer thin and expertly crafted to precise specifications. Dr. James Fondriest will adjust and bond your veneers so that they appear natural and last for years to come.
They can be created without much drilling of tooth enamel
No-prep veneers are minimally invasive because the procedure does not involve disturbing the sensitive interior structures of teeth. Even crooked teeth can be managed with minimal drilling simply by covering them over. This type of veneer is considered as conservative as using composite resin.
Porcelain veneers provide a total smile makeover
Veneers can improve your smile by concealing cracks, chips, and gaps between teeth. Your smile can be made brighter with whitening products or by tinting veneers to a brighter shade. After your veneers are bonded, you will enjoy a flawless, celebrity smile.
Veneers are made just for you
Dr. Fondriest will ensure that your veneers are crafted to exact specifications so that they blend seamlessly with the shape of your teeth and the size of your mouth. Your treatment plan is designed just for you based on your goals to achieve your perfect smile.
You can treat veneers like natural teeth
Durable and long lasting, you can chew and bite food as you normally would. Veneers are permanent so you will brush and floss them like your natural teeth. We advise you to keep the same oral health habits you had before treatment.
What Makes Veneers Ideal?
There are a number of reasons for patients to choose porcelain veneers as their ideal cosmetic treatment to enhance their smile. The first reason is because veneers can help to comprehensively correct many concerns at once, by helping improve the uniformity of the teeth’s size, shape, and even shade. But veneers can also be made to hide minor gaps with less or no drilling.
Another reason many people favor veneers over alternative treatments is that the porcelain is designed to be both natural looking and incredibly long lasting. In fact, porcelain is very similar to teeth’s natural enamel, in that it is both stain resistant and strong.
How Long Will You Enjoy Your Smile Enhancements?
In many cases, the esthetic benefits of veneers can actually last for twenty years or more with proper care. That requires daily dental hygiene and routine dental visits and cleanings.
