About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can restore a lovely smile by covering certain cosmetic flaws, such as cracks, stains, chips, small gaps, and other issues. Thin, personalized covers that sit over the front surface of the patient’s teeth, dental veneers create a natural, good-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are long-lasting, but still thin enough to be discreet, which helps the porcelain veneers to blend with the normal appearance of the teeth. Getting dental veneers created by our dentists at DentalWorks - Irving Park in Chicago, IL is a efficient, easy way to mask various physical flaws and make a restored, glowing smile.
What to Expect
To initiate the process of making the personalized dental veneers our dentists needs to make room for the dental veneer by removing a thin layer of dental enamel from each tooth that will be concealed to the dental veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared, our dentists will make a digital impression of the teeth that will be used to create the custom dental veneers in a dental laboratory. A temporary veneer can be used to protect the teeth until the final dental veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Irving Park in Chicago, IL. The custom dental veneers will be attached to the front surface of the teeth with a dental bonding agent. Our dentists will tweak the dental veneers as needed to provide the patient a comfortable and snug fit.
A follow-up appointment is usually scheduled for about 5 - 7 days after the dental veneers are placed to ensure the attachment is secure and the fit is still comfortable. Porcelain veneers are more resilient against staining than the natural enamel, but to keep the dental veneers in their pristine condition, our dentists advise avoiding staining foods and drinks, like tea, coffee, soda, and red wine. Patients should start or continue to follow a good home oral care routine, including brushing the teeth with a non-abrasive toothpaste, regular flossing, and visiting our dentists for dental cleanings and oral exams at DentalWorks - Irving Park. With good care, dental veneers can last up to 20 years.
Porcelain veneers are categorized a cosmetic service, so it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, DentalWorks - Irving Park in Chicago, IL accepts many payment options, not to mention our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Irving Park can help patients with financing plans to make dental veneers more affordable.
