Porcelain Veneers Noble Square, Wicker Park, ChicagoAt East Village Dental Centre in Chicago, you can get porcelain veneers that will transform your smile and boost your confidence in no time. Our team of professionals can give you that perfect smile you’ve been looking for. Whether you have stained, chipped, or crooked teeth, our veneer service can correct any imperfections and instantly give you a complete smile makeover.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are delicately bonded to the front of the teeth to cover worn tooth enamel, chipped or cracked teeth, and more. Originally designed for and worn by movie stars, porcelain veneers provide a bright, symmetrical, and natural-looking smile. The placement of veneers requires tremendous skill, artistry, and precision. Our cosmetic dentist in Wicker Park has mastered this technique over years of training.

What Issues Can Veneers Address?

Because they fit over your existing tooth, porcelain veneers are able to conceal a number of different signs of imperfection and wear. Some cosmetic flaws that porcelain veneers can address include:

  • Worn and dull teeth
  • Dull or stained teeth
  • Gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

Our Porcelain Veneers Process

During your first visit to our Chicago location, our veneers professional will determine the type of veneers that can improve and compliment your smile. The size and shape of the veneers will be considered, as well as the shape of your face and the results you wish to achieve. In order to accommodate the porcelain veneers, the enamel of the tooth will be removed. Your teeth will then be covered with temporary veneers. Because the veneers are not made in the office, there is a small window of waiting time. Once your veneers are ready, you will then come back to the office and the temporary ones will be removed and replaced with the permanent ones.

Who is a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic procedure and therefore are not intended to treat any existing dental conditions. In fact, those who are currently receiving treatment for dental issues such as tooth decay, bruxism, or chronic gum disease may be disqualified from receiving them. Before receiving veneers, your dentist will need to conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, possibly taking x-rays to verify your candidacy. Because veneers are not completed in a single visit, it’s important to make sure that you are able to return to our cosmetic dentist in Wicker Park to finish out the application.

Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

  • Porcelain veneers provide a natural appearance. Porcelain veneers are semi-translucent like your real teeth and provide a ‘naturally beautiful’ result.
  • Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant. Veneers are less susceptible to staining compared to natural teeth, and are known to maintain their shade for years.
  • Your veneers will be unique to you. While consulting with your dentist, you will have the option to select a lighter shade or specific style that will suit your goals.
  • Porcelain is well-tolerated by your gums. Gingival health is as important as dental health. There is no adverse effect when porcelain comes into contact with your gums.

Disadvantages of Porcelain Veneers

  • Veneers are not reversible. Because the process involves removing part of the natural tooth, you can never remove your veneers once they have been applied.
  • Veneers are not impervious to damage. Though it’s not likely, veneers have been known to crack or fall out. This may require re-adhering or replacing your veneer.
  • Your teeth may become more sensitive to temperature. With their natural enamel removed, some people with veneers notice additional sensitivity. 

How Many Veneers Do I Need?

The number of veneers that need to be created depends on the individual’s smile goals. In some cases, a person is only dissatisfied with one or two teeth in their smile, and will only need one or two veneers. Many people choose to address their top row of teeth only and will have 4-8 veneers made. When planning ‘full’ veneers for a patient, our cosmetic dentist in Wicker Park may recommend 12 veneers or more spread across the upper and lower jaw.
