Your Teeth Are Not Indestructible

Posted on November 8th, 2015 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Your teeth are extremely strong, but it is inevitable that they will eventually show signs of wear and tear from daily use. Stains, chips and cracks happen as a result of daily activities, such as eating, drinking and chewing. There was a time not long ago when the only solution was to have the teeth fitted with very expensive caps, but with new technology and techniques it is now possible to fix such issues with veneers in the South Loop.

Dental veneers South Loop are very thin shells made from either resin material, or more frequently, porcelain. These shells are produced in a lab to fit exactly over the front surface of the specific tooth or teeth. Once the veneers have been placed by the cosmetic dentist, the imperfections are hidden, there is a significant improvement in the appearance of the teeth and as the color and shape can be changed – the patient’s smile looks perfect!

It takes a couple of trips to the cosmetic dentist to have veneers produced and fitted. The first appointment usually consists of a consultation with the dentist, where the options, treatment process and pricing are discussed. Once the patient agrees the dentist will take a set of impressions. Before the patient arrives for the second appointment the dentist will know what he or she has to do to the surfaces of the teeth to prepare them for the veneers. In the majority of cases the tooth is shaved a little, leaving room for the thickness of the actual veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared a second impression is made, this impression is given to a dental technician who produces the veneers to fit precisely. The final trip is when the dentist fits them and makes any minor adjustments.

Art of Modern Dentistry offers veneers and various other cosmetic dentistry procedures in our South Loop and Lakeview offices. Schedule an appointment today to discuss your options with one of our experienced general and cosmetic dentists.

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.
