Veneers: The Ideal Cover-Up for a Great Smile

Dental veneers offer one of the best ways to give your smile a natural look. At Bucktown Wicker Park Dental in Chicago, Illinois, our team provides expert care for your cosmetic dentistry needs with dental restorations that include veneers. Let’s first look at why you might be a candidate for dental veneers.

Dental veneers for your cosmetic solution

You should consider dental veneers for your tooth restoration if your teeth have any of the following:

Veneers are less intrusive than wearing braces or getting crowns. They can also transform the look of your teeth and can give you the beautiful smile you desire.

Benefits of dental veneers

When you choose veneers as your dental restoration option, advantages included: 

When you meet with us for your consultation, we help determine the look you want with the right shaped veneers and the right coloring to give you a bright smile.

The process of getting dental veneers

Before your procedure begins, we make sure you’re happy with the look you want to achieve. We’ll examine your teeth and determine what might work best for you. 

To keep you comfortable, we numb the area of your treated teeth first. We then prepare your teeth by shaving them down to remove the surface to make room for the veneer that will go over it. 

We then take an impression of your mouth to create your veneers, which can take about two to four weeks. We put temporary veneers on until your permanent ones are made. 

You then come in for another visit where we bond your veneers to your original teeth. We make sure they’re positioned properly and then seal them on permanently. 

Care for your veneers

You take care of your veneers just like you take care of your natural teeth. We recommend you brush twice a day and floss daily. We also encourage you to use a non-abrasive toothpaste. Although veneers are stain-resistant, you should stay away from stain-inducing drinks, such as coffee.

To schedule a consultation about veneers, contact us by calling today or booking your appointment online. You can also send our team a message if you have any questions or concerns.
