Patient Testimonial: Low Preparation Veneers

“ It has taken me a lifetime to finally acquire a smile that makes me happy! My front teeth were broken in an accident at age twelve; and not one dentist was ever able to restore my smile to its original beauty- until YOU. Today, as I reviewed the photos you took of my smile, I was reduced to tears. You are a dentist who cared enough to resolve the many issues we faced in achieving this beautiful smile. THANK YOU. As one orthodontist said, ‘how does he do it? How does he make them look so natural?’

These teeth look more natural than my real, original teeth. It has been three years since I started the “smile improvement” process with braces. Today, I just can’t stop smiling, and it is because of your artistry and mastery of cosmetic dentistry.

I should also mention that my mother had beautiful teeth and a stunning smile. When I opened your email photos and looked at the second photo (the smile close-up), it was like my mother was smiling at me!! She died many years ago, but how pleasant for me to see my mother smiling at me each time I now look in the mirror- a wonderful and unexpected gift!

And finally, I can’t say enough about the professionalism, kindness, and thoroughness of your office staff and assistants. Their involvement made my experience even more positive!

Thank you for everything.”

Low Preparation Veneers

Like traditional porcelain veneers, low preparation veneers conceal smile flaws, such as chips, cracks, stains, and minor gaps. The difference is that low preparation veneers require little to no tooth enamel reduction before they’re placed. This innovative cosmetic dental procedure allows Chicago dentist Dr. James Fondriest to restore smiles with natural contours with zero or minimal tooth enamel reduction, meaning that these thin sheets of high-quality porcelain are bonded directly to your healthy natural tooth, often without the need for anesthesia.

Low preparation veneers are designed and applied with multiple artistic layers and varying colors and levels of translucency of the porcelain to achieve the most natural appearance possible. Dr. Fondriest has seen this conservative esthetic treatment work wonders for countless patients. Following their treatment, some patients can’t even believe that these beautiful teeth weren’t there all along.
