Porcelain Veneers

Having the perfect, white smile is in high demand with patients across the country. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Americans spend roughly $2.75 billion on cosmetic dentistry per year. We here at, A Dental Place in Lombard, IL often recommend porcelain veneers for those wanting to make big improvements to their smile.

About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are small, thin, tooth colored coverings that are shaped and sized to fit you’re your existing teeth. This material is extremely strong, resists scratches and doesn’t stain like your natural teeth. Having veneers installed requires a minimum of two appointments.  The first appointment we take molds of your teeth.  After, the veneers are made in at a dental lab by killed technicians.  At the second appointment, the veneers are placed on your teeth.  With good care, a new set of porcelain veneers can last for 20 years or longer before they need to be updated. Good care includes regular checkups, brushing, flossing, avoiding direct contact with hot beverages and eating the right foods.

Creating Veneers
Veneers are created in a laboratory using impressions of the patient’s smile that are taken by the dentist. Before the impressions can be made, the  dentist must first prepare each tooth in the treatment plan to make room for the veneers. The entire process of creating the veneers commonly takes a few weeks, after which the patient is called back in for an appointment to have them bonded.

A "Hollywood Smile"
When a patient requests a "Hollywood Smile" it will almost always involve porcelain veneers. With veneers a patient can get a complete smile makeover, no matter how their original teeth are shaped, spaced or colored. For instance, if a patient has spaces between their teeth, a larger veneer covering can be made to fill in those spaces. The veneers are also colored and sculpted to perfection, to give you a smile that best fits your facial features. This is why so many Hollywood stars opt for this cosmetic procedure.

Looking to enhance the look of your teeth and get that "Hollywood Smile"? Call the Lombard, IL dentists of A Dental Place today at (630) 620-7300 to schedule a visit to discuss this cosmetic treatment.
