Dental Veneers Explained

Dental veneers are thin layers of material – typically porcelain or composite resin. They are placed over your teeth with a dental adhesive to improve their appearance and protect against surface damage.

Typically, porcelain veneers are the longer-lasting choice. They will last around 10-12 years with proper care, while resin veneers last around four to eight years.

In addition to improving the appearance of your teeth, the procedure is virtually painless. Unlike some other dental procedures, almost all patients feel little to no pain with applying veneers.

When to Choose Dental Veneers

You may want to consider veneers if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Damaged teeth
  • Enamel fractures
  • Fluorosis (White or brown spots or streaks on the teeth from overexposure to fluoride)
  • Enamel not fully mineralized
  • Not enough enamel covering the fronts of your teeth

Porcelain veneers are a perfect long-term solution for these kinds of dental problems. You will receive personal veneers shaped to your mouth and teeth. Veneers are also stain-resistant and light-reflective, with a look and feel similar to natural teeth.

Our Procedure for Veneers

Applying dental veneers involves several steps, from the initial consultation to the final placement using today’s most advanced dental technology. Here’s a simplified breakdown of the process:

  1. Initial Consultation
    • Evaluation: Visit your dentist to discuss your goals and concerns. The dentist evaluates your oral health, takes X-rays, and possibly makes impressions of your teeth.
    • Treatment Plan: If veneers are suitable, the dentist creates a tailored treatment plan, including the number of veneers and the desired appearance.
  2. Preparation
    • Tooth Preparation: A small amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of the teeth to ensure proper fit and a natural look.
    • Impressions: Impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to a dental lab to create custom veneers.
    • Temporary Veneers: Temporary veneers may be placed to protect your teeth and help you adjust to the new look.
  3. Fabrication
    • Creating the Veneers: The lab crafts the veneers from porcelain or composite resin, based on the dentist’s specifications.
    • Customization: The veneers are customized to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
  4. Placement
    • Trial and Adjustment: The dentist places the veneers on your teeth to check fit and appearance, making any necessary adjustments.
    • Bonding: The teeth are cleaned, polished, and etched. A special cement is applied, and the veneers are placed on your teeth.
    • Curing: A special light hardens the cement, securing the veneers.
  5. Final Touches
    • Excess Cement Removal: After the cement sets, any excess is removed, and your bite is evaluated.
    • Polishing: The veneers are polished for a natural shine.
  6. Follow-Up
    • Post-Placement Check-Up: A follow-up appointment ensures the veneers are properly settled and addresses any concerns. The dentist checks your oral health and the condition of the veneers.

By following these steps, dental veneers can enhance your smile, providing a natural and durable solution to various cosmetic dental issues. It is essential to remember, however, that regular dental check-ups and proper oral hygiene are essential to maintain your veneers’ longevity and appearance.

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.
