Caring for Dental Veneers

Posted on March 29th, 2018 by

Having stained, chipped or missing teeth is never ideal. Your smile should be a source of confidence, not something you’re constantly hiding. If you find yourself in need of dental veneers in Chicago, Art of Modern Dentistry is your go-to dentist.

What are Veneers?

They are thin pieces of porcelain that we use to re-create the natural look and feel of your teeth. Each veneer is custom-made and can be also used to fix small misalignments and gaps, making them less of a commitment than braces. Depending on the exact veneer, expect them to last anywhere from 10-20 years.

The Placing Process

Expect the process of getting veneers to take one to two appointments. Our dentist will clean your teeth and pick a shade that matches your natural teeth. We will also remove a small amount of enamel in order to provide room for the new veneer to be placed. An impression of your tooth comes next followed by the laboratory delivering your custom-made veneer. We use cement and adhesive to fit the veneer to your tooth and remove any excess materials. A shiny layer of polish finishes the process.

Veneer Care

The best part? You can care for your veneers the same way you would your normal teeth, including brushing and flossing daily. You should also use a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste and try to limit stain-inducing foods like coffee or teeth.
If you need dental veneers in Chicago, don’t wait another day. Call Art of Modern Dentistry to get the smile of your dreams.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
