Porcelain Veneers in Chicago
A veneer is a thin custom-made crown-like shell made from porcelain or composite resin that is fitted permanently over an existing tooth. Veneers are a popular choice for celebrities and patients looking to quickly improve the look of their smile. As veneers are a permanent dental solution, they are custom-made to suit the patient’s smile. Treatment starts with a thin outer layer of the existing tooth being removed. Then, the veneer is fitted precisely to the gum line and surrounding teeth before being bonded permanently.
Since dental veneers only cover the surface of the teeth, and are purely an aesthetic solution. If you are after a beautiful and natural-looking smile, then dental veneers are a good solution. But if you are someone with severe decay, compromised or missing teeth, then you may not be a suitable candidate.
Veneers are ideal for people with teeth that are:
- Gapped, and
- Out of proportion with the gums
Given the proper care, porcelain veneers can preserve a smile for decades.
Cosmetic dentistry patients may experience some sensitivity in the teeth, especially when contacting hot or cold substances. This sensitivity should lessen within two weeks. If you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep, your dentist can fit you with a mouth guard that will protect your teeth.Porcelain veneers are quite strong and can withstand considerable force when a patient bites down, but they may fracture or break if twisted. Patients should therefore avoid hard or sharp foods such as ice or pistachios that may cause undue stress.
