Dental veneers in Downtown Chicago are an ideal solution to permanently brightening your smile. Veneers are custom-made for you in a dental lab using impressions that we take of your teeth. The veneers are made of thin shells of porcelain that are colored in the shade of your preference. You can get one veneer to correct a stained or chipped tooth, a few veneers to correct a couple of your teeth or a full set of veneers to update the entire look of your smile.
Dental veneers are a permanent cosmetic procedure. In order to place the veneers onto your teeth, we use an abrasive pad to remove a little bit of your dental enamel. Because of the enamel removal, you will always need to have a veneer over your tooth. The tiny amount of enamel is removed in order to create a surface that it can bond to.
The veneer can correct a permanently stained tooth. If you used to smoke or you took a medication that stained your teeth, the veneers can correct those issues. A minor chip or a gummy smile can also be corrected with veneers.
Once the veneers are bonded, they are permanent. They are designed to last for ten years or longer. Rarely, a veneer may need to be replaced. It is important to note that if you drink coffee or red wine a lot, those liquids could stain the veneers. If you enjoy those beverages, be sure to rinse with water immediately after consuming them, then brush your teeth. With proper care, your veneers will provide you with a bright white smile.
