Porcelain Veneers in Aurora, IL
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that are bonded to the front surface of your natural tooth enamel to improve their appearance. These thin shells of porcelain are customized to fit each patient’s unique smile, making them an excellent solution for those who want a dramatic improvement in their smile.
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
1. Natural Appearance
The porcelain material used to make veneers is designed to look and feel just like real tooth enamel, so you’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful stunning smile that looks and feels entirely natural. Additionally, porcelain dental veneers are highly stain resistant, meaning you won’t need to worry about them discoloring over time.
2. Long-Lasting Results
With proper maintenance and regular dental care, your veneers can last up to 15 years or more. Make sure to keep up with your regular checkups and cleaning appointments to ensure they stay in the best condition possible.
3. Quick Results
Dental veneers can be applied quickly and easily compared to other cosmetic treatments. Porcelain veneers can give you a beautiful smile in as little as two visits to our office.
4. Minimally Invasive
Unlike other cosmetic treatments, such as braces and crowns, veneers are minimally invasive. This means that there is very little enamel removed from your teeth in order to place the veneers. Additionally, because the porcelain material is so thin and lightweight, it won’t cause any discomfort or pain while eating or speaking.
The Porcelain Veneers Process
We want you to be informed and involved in the process of transforming your smile with veneers. During your initial consultation, our cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth and ask about your desired results to determine if veneers are the best option for you. If so, we will prepare your teeth by removing a very small amount of enamel to make room for the veneers. We will then take impressions of your teeth and send them off to a lab to be custom-made for you.
We may place temporary veneers on your teeth while you wait for the permanent ones to be created. When your permanent veneers arrive, we will check them to make sure they fit properly and have the desired look and feel. If all is well, we will bond them securely in place and polish them to give you a beautiful natural-looking smile.
Maintaining Your Dental Veneers
Just like your natural teeth, veneers require regular brushing and flossing as well as regular dental checkups for optimal oral health. It’s also important to avoid habits such as nail-biting or grinding your teeth, which can damage the veneers or even cause them to come off. With proper care, you can enjoy a beautiful smile that lasts for many years.
