Smile Makeovers Through the Magic of Porcelain Veneers

Posted on May 16th, 2024 by

Have you ever wished for a flawless, movie-star smile? Porcelain veneers might be your answer! At Art of Modern Dentistry in Chicago, we specialize in transforming smiles with these thin, durable shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, dramatically improving the appearance of your smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from porcelain or composite resin and are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They’re ideal for addressing a variety of issues related to damaged teeth, including discoloration, chips, gaps, or misshapen teeth, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Whether you’re looking to enhance your smile for a boost in confidence or correct cosmetic concerns, veneers offer a versatile and effective treatment option.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?

The process of getting veneers is a fairly simple dental procedure, involving just a few visits to our office. First, we’ll have a consultation to discuss your goals and design your new smile. Next, we’ll prepare your teeth for veneers by removing a small amount of enamel to make space for the veneers to fit seamlessly. We then make impressions of your teeth, which are sent to a dental lab where your custom veneers are crafted.

While your permanent veneers are being made, you’ll wear temporary ones to protect your teeth. Once your porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll come back to our office. We will then carefully bond the veneers to your teeth, ensuring they fit perfectly and look natural. Finally, we’ll make any necessary adjustments to give you the beautiful, functional smile you’ve been dreaming of.

Caring for Your Veneers

Taking care of your porcelain veneers is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Brush at least twice a day, floss regularly, and visit Art of Modern Dentistry for regular check-ups and cleanings. Although veneers are stain-resistant, we recommend avoiding excessive coffee, tea, or red wine to keep your veneers looking their best. Also, avoid biting hard objects like ice or hard candy that can chip the porcelain.

How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?

With proper care, your porcelain veneers can brighten your smile for 10 to 15 years. Regular dental visits are crucial to ensure the longevity of your veneers and to maintain overall oral health.

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 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.
